Why Be a Delegate?

You are here

Delegates . . .You are Important!
"Decisions are made by those who show up."

Representing Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana is an honor and a privilege. The delegate system somewhat mirrors our elected legislators who represent constituents. You are nominated by your peers and elected by those who are members of
your Community.

From the beginning of Girl Scouts, the democratic process and participation in a democratic way of life have been basic beliefs that characterize the Girl
Scout Movement.

When you accept the nomination, you are proudly stating your commitment to place the needs and desires of the council and service unit members above your own
personal interests.

We encourage you to become a delegate and represent your service unit.
