Thank you again for your time and talent at the ACTION Rally on November 21. Each year, the (volunteer) region chairs and members of the Corporation Team, and (volunteer) members of the Board of Directors and staff, join together to deliver an inspirational and educational day. Delegates are able to better understand their position description, interact about key issues impacting our council during Region Time, learn more about our board and governance topics, and come together as one council. The website has been updated with the CEO presentation – customer survey results, Region Time summary, and evaluation summary. Staff, board, and volunteers will review the materials and make recommendations for positive change – your voice matters!
Remember we are all one council: Girl Scouts, volunteers, members, board, and staff. I encourage each of you to work with your service unit leadership team to set a time for a regular delegate report at each service unit meeting. Share what you have learned with a message to volunteers and girls that we are greater as one unified movement. Support members of the service unit to become active as a delegate, participate in our democratic process and advocate for girls. Our democratic process ensures that all members have a voice.
The Delegate Workbook providing the written notice of time, place, and purpose of the Annual Meeting, together with the slate of nominees to be filled pursuant to the Council Bylaws is now available on this website – select Delegate Workbook on the right. If you have questions, please contact Marie Graziosi – firstname.lastname@example.org – 941.921.5358 ext. 338.
We look forward to seeing all delegates and alternate delegates at the Annual Meeting to conduct the business of the council and celebrate volunteers. Be sure to share that all members of Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc., community members and guests are welcome to attend our Annual Meeting of the Council on January 23, 2016 at the Gulfcoast Event and Conference Center.
Yours in Girl Scouting,
