Board of Directors

Composed of members from across our council and spanning the private and nonprofit sector, our board of directors guides the direction of Girl Scouts River Valleys. These five executive officers and 19 directors at-large are volunteers and members of Girl Scouts of the USA.

We are always interested in maintaining a highly qualified, diverse pool of candidates for openings as they become available. Do you know someone who would be great for River Valleys’ board or board development committee? Refer them today (PDF)!
