River Valleys Seeking Board of Directors Candidates

Women of Distinction-188The Girl Scouts River Valleys Board Development Committee is seeking recommendations, including self-nominations, for openings for the 2017 Board of Directors.

Girl Scouts River Valleys’ Board of Directors guides the overall philosophy and direction of the organization. To build the best possible board, we need to find the most qualified candidates. We are seeking volunteers who:

  • Bring a mix of talents, ages, ethnic backgrounds, races, genders and geographic locations, as well as a mix of corporate and community experience.
  • Balance their talents, skills, and backgrounds to leverage the diverse perspectives and views of members throughout the council.
  • Are influential and well connected in their workplaces and their communities.
  • Have strong leadership skills and a solid understanding of board governance responsibilities.

Please note: Recruiting priorities change each year based on the composition of the board at that time. Previous experience in Girl Scouting is highly valued but it is not a requirement.
