We’re getting so close! We’re now under a year for Salt Lake City to host the 2014 Girl Scout National Convention October 16-19, 2014. Our countdown has begun!
The event will attract 12,000 Girl Scout officials from around the globe and will inject $10 million into the local economy; officials estimate hotels to expect 11,000 room-night-bookings. Girl Scouts of Utah defeated Orlando, FL and Portland, OR to acquire the triennial convention.
A year-long effort launches this week to secure 1,000 volunteers to provide assistance with everything from crowd control to public relations during the months preceding the actual Convention. Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts will be asked to lend a hand in this historic event which has previously seen Michelle Obama and Katie Couric as keynote speakers.
The National Convention reinvigorates the Girl Scout Movement, celebrates the organization’s accomplishments, and charts a path for the future. Girl Scouts of Utah is soliciting partners and volunteers to be connected to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
