National Convention

October 4-8, 2017 | Columbus, Ohio

Every three years, Girl Scouts gather together at the National Council Session and Convention to reinvigorate our Movement, celebrate our accomplishments and chart our future. The 2017 National Convention in Columbus, Ohio promises to honor our cherished traditions and, at the same time, propel the Movement forward for girls and young women. In addition to conducting the business of the Movement, Girl Scouts USA is launching G.I.R.L. 2017, the inaugural, externally focused conversation on issues affecting girls, engaging girls and adults in substantive dialogue.

Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf is looking for Adult Delegates and Girl Participants who will represent our council in Columbus on October 4-8, 2017. Delegates will be able to attend the National Council Session, G.I.R.L 2017 sessions, Hall of Experiences and vote on Girl Scout proposals. Participants will be able to attend the sessions, Hall of Experiences as well as the Center of Science & Industry Museum Camp.

A select number of delegates and participants will be partially sponsored for registration, travel, hotel and incidental expenses. GSLPG is sponsoring FOUR Adult Delegates and SIX Girl Participants with one Adult Chaperone. Delegates will be selected by our Board and Girl Participants will be selected by our Girl Experience team. Final selections will be announced and presented at our Annual Meeting on March 25, 2017.
