55TH National Convention Feature Hero

In October 2020, Girl Scouts from across our country and around the world gathered for the 55th time to conduct the important business of our Movement, using our democratic process to do so. Juliette Gordon Low said it best: “The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.” Girl Scouts convened its first National Council Session (NCS) in 1915, engaging women in a democratic process five years before the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granted American women the right to vote.

National Delegates represent the council at the National Council Session held every three years. They gather input and vote on proposals that impact Girl Scouting across the country. They also elect the National Board of Directors and Board Development Committee. For more than a century, delegates have been brought together to represent their collective voices—to discuss and debate topics around the future direction of Girl Scouts, always with the girls we serve as the focus of these meetings.
