From January 5-7, nine volunteers from around the world, representing USAGSO boards in our military locations (North Atlantic and West Pacific) as well as our civilian locations, came together at Girl Scouts’ Edith Macy Conference Center in New York to re-envision USAGSO’s current board structure with a goal of designing a unified structure to advise on and support the growth and advancement of Girl Scouts Overseas. The group brought their individual experiences overseas, their expertise and experiences on governing and advisory boards, and their passion for Girl Scouts.
As a result of the hard work of the Board Transition Task Group, over the next two months USAGSO will move from two boards representing only our military communities to one USA Girl Scouts Overseas Council of Advisors. The Council of Advisors will support the work of USAGSO in fundraising, marketing/PR, and day-to-day operations and will provide input on matters of policy that directly concern the delivery of the Girl Scout program overseas. The Council of Advisors’ operating documents and accountabilities are being finalized. A call for nominations was released the week of February 8. The first annual meeting of the new Council of Advisors will be held in April.Continue >
