National Council Session & Convention 2023

National Council Delegates help Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois honor the voice of our membership.

Every three years, National Council Delegates representing each council in Girl Scouts of the USA gather for the National Convention and conduct business at the National Council Meeting.

At the National Council Session (NCS) held in July 2023, eight delegates elected from GSNI will join Girl Scouts from across our country to conduct the important business of our Movement, using our democratic process to do so.

There are seven proposals that will be discussed and voted upon at the NCS. These items are based on input from volunteers, council leaders and staff, national leaders and GSUSA staff, and the volunteer members of the GSUSA Board of Directors.

Please complete this survey to share your thoughts on the proposal topics so our delegates can represent the voice of girls and volunteers in GSNI. All registered members of GSNI age 14+ may complete the survey.
