Delegates and alternate delegates serve as the primary communication link between area Girl Scout members, community networks and River Valleys’ Board of Directors, and they elect our local representatives and national council delegates.

Elections should be held between April and September for delegate positions for the following year. To determine the number of delegates/alternates allowed per service unit, refer to the Delegate Matrix (check with your service unit manager for the most up-to-date matrix).
To ensure that each delegate/alternate delegate has the information needed to serve effectively, River Valleys recommends 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. For questions regarding delegates, email Delegates@girlscoutsrv.org.
Girl Scouts River Valleys’ 2018 Annual meeting date and location are yet to be determined—please stay tuned for a save the date announcement.
