It Happened! Our First Virtual National Council Session!

We want to give a big thank our GSCCC National Council Delegates who were among national voting members at the 55th National Council Session. They were the voice of GSCCC! In addition to attending and voting at the NCS, they engaged and gathered feedback from our GSCCC members ahead of the NCS and learned all about the six proposals up for vote. 

GSCCC National Delegates: Jasmine Barbour-Bassett (Girl Member);JoAn Berry; Tracy Keller; Maureen Keller (G); Eileen Livick; Jennifer Lynch; Morgan Lynch (G) Brittany Orosco, and Barbara Tierney

Four of the proposals were around membership dues, including a new Lifetime Membership discount for volunteers of 10+ years, and a cap on the percentage increase for membership dues the National Board can put through in a triennium without National Council approval. There was also a proposal on the establishment of a task force around Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarships. The final proposal was on the timeline that National Delegates are selected. All six of the proposals passed during National Council Session. 


A revised copy of the Blue Book of Basic Documents is now posted on GSCCC’s website.

In addition to the actions listed above, the National Council elected the National Board for 2020 – 2023.


President: Karen P. Layng
