Girl Scout Delegates: vote on GSHPA policies and participate in governance

Delegates and Governance

Girl Scouts of all ages are passionate leaders ready to reinvigorate our movement, celebrate accomplishments, and chart brighter futures for girls.

To be a delegate for Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania, you must:

  • Must be a registered Girl Scout member, 18 years of age or older
  • Have current background checks on file
  • Serve a set term—see  bylaws for more information
