A District Delegate is a District Member who is selected as a District Delegate for that District. Delegates must be Members at the time of selection and throughout the term of service.
Each Service Unit is entitled to select from among its members two Delegates, including one adult and one girl Delegate whenever possible, excluding the Directors of the Board. Council employees are ineligible to be District Delegates.
Each District may select no more than ten Delegates-at-large. Each District shall establish its own procedures for selecting Delegates-at-large and for filling vacant Delegate positions with alternates, when and if necessary.
The District Delegates attend the Council’s Annual Meeting and elect the Board and the Council’s National Delegates. Each District Delegate shall serve for a term of two years or until a successor is selected.
Each Delegate’s term of office shall begin on March 1. There are no limits to the number of terms that a District Delegate can serve.

National Council Delegates serve as Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana’s voting members at the National Council Session. They engage and gather feedback from Girl Scout members in our council, learn about proposals, and take action to be the voice of Girl Scouts GCNWI during the National Council Session. They then bring back information to share locally.
