Council Governance

Governance is the vision for the organization, ensuring the mission and values of Girl Scouting by providing strategic direction, fiduciary oversight, and leadership for the Utah council.

Girl Scouts of Utah’s governance process provides a structure for communication between the membership and the board of directors to influence policy regarding the council goals, issues affecting girls and issues affecting the business of the organization.

Board of Directors

Girl Scouts of Utah is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of individuals who believe in the value of Girl Scouting and who provide strategic leadership, advocacy, decision-making, partnerships and policy development/oversight.

Service Unit Delegates are the “Voice of the Members,” bringing the concerns of the membership to the attention of the GSU Board of Directors and leadership staff. Members, 14 years of age and older, may serve as Service Unit Delegates and participate in the democratic process. Delegates provide guidance and input to the board of directors on governance issues and policies affecting the future of the council and communicates this information to service unit members.

National Delegates

National Delegates and Alternates are elected by GSU's voting membership on a triennial (3-year) basis and are the voice of our Council at the National Council Session.

Town Meetings

The purpose of the GSU Town Meetings is to provide members (adults and girls 14 years and older) with the opportunity to:

  • receive updates and provide input into council policy and governance decisions made by the Board of Directors;
  • help set and support the strategic goals of the council;
  • and provide feedback and participate in discussions and forums necessary to ensure consistent, quality service-delivery of the Girl Scout program to members of Girl Scouts of Utah.

Delegates have an opportunity to provide valuable feedback from Communities during Town Meetings conducted throughout the year. Representation by members in every Community encourages informed decision-making and improved two-way communication.
