National Council Delegates
National Council Delegates serve as Girl Scouts of Western New York voting members at the National Council Sessions.
They engage and gather feedback from Girl Scout members in our council, learn about proposals, and take action to be the voice of Girl Scouts of Western New York during the National Council Session. They then bring back information to share locally.
Girl members who are 14 years old as of December 31, 2022, and adult members who reside in the boundaries of Girl Scouts of Western New York are eligible to apply to be a national delegate.
