Delegate Information

As part of our policy-influencing process, members 14 years and older may serve as Council delegates and participate in the Council democratic process. Delegates are the communication link between Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast girls, volunteers, community networks and board of directors. As a delegate, you are entitled to elect representatives on the Council's Board of Directors and National Council Delegates.

Service Unit Delegates are members of the Girl Scout Movement that reside in a Service Unit within the Council's jurisdiction who are voted by their Service Unit to be the conduit through which matters of governance are understood and communicated and to represent the Service Unit with one voice. Delegates shall serve a term of one (1) year or until their successors are elected. Delegates may serve no more than three consecutive terms. Terms of office shall begin at the time delegates are elected.

Service Unit Alternate Delegates are members of the Girl Scout Movement also residing within a Service Unit in the Council's jurisdiction who are voted by their Service Unit to stand in place of the delegate and assume their responsibilities (including voting rights) should the Service Unit delegate not be able to carry out their role during a specified period.

National Delegates represent Colonial Coast and cast votes at the Girl Scouts of the USA National Convention, held every three years. Nominations are made prior to the Council's Annual Meeting. National Delegates are elected at Annual Meeting and participate in training and preparations prior to attending the National Convention.
