Delegate Dialogues

River Valleys holds delegate dialogues quarterly to bring delegates together with the council membership. Delegates speak with our community on strategic issues and hear membership’s input on the future of our council. Find events in your area and register to attend to make your voice heard.

Training

To ensure that each delegate/alternate delegate has the information needed to serve effectively, River Valleys requires all delegates and alternates be trained before performing their duties at the Annual Meeting. If you completed delegate training prior to an Annual Meeting in 2008 through 2014, your training is complete.

After watching the video, you will be prompted to complete a short questionnaire to confirm completion. A paper self-study is available for those without Internet access. Email Delegates@girlscoutsrv.org or call 800-845-0787 to use this option.

Annual Meeting

The 2015 Annual Meeting is scheduled for January 31, 2015, at the Rosemount Community Center in Rosemount, MN.

At the morning session, the volunteer property committee will present the results of it’s year-long review of River Valleys council properties and usage, along with it’s recommendations for both short and long-range plans for those properties. There will be time for questions and answers during the presentation, and breakout sessions (including a girls-only session) to allow deeper discussions around the topics and their recommendations will follow.

We will honor volunteer award winners during a lunch program, and close the day with the business meeting. Details and the actual schedule for the day will be provided soon.
