GSNMT Council Delegates
Delegate names must be submitted by the Service Unit to Council by May 15, 2013. Please forward names to Ambria.
Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails delegates elect the Board of Directors, Board Officers, and members of the Board Development Committee at the Council Annual Meeting. Throughout the year, delegates respond to requests for consultation from the Board and in this way influence the decisions of the Board as they fulfill their governance responsibilities. Additionally, delegates represent the council at the National Council Meeting held every three years. The roles and responsibilities of the delegates and of the board are described in the council’s by-laws (click here to access the GSNMT bylaws).
