Recently, we announced with deep sadness that Gail Maupin passed away unexpectedly on Monday afternoon. Gail worked for Girl Scouts for over 27 years in almost every possible role, but most recently served as the council’s Director of Product, Retail, and Council Enterprise System (CES). She was based in our Johnson City Service Center and was beloved by council staff, volunteers, and countless other people within the community.
Out of respect for our staff and the hundreds of volunteers Gail impacted, who are now grieving her loss, we are postponing the council’s Annual Meeting until Saturday, July 14. We recognize this date is during the summer, and that unfortunately some people will have conflicts due to vacations or other events. We also want to ensure our volunteers receive the recognition they deserve, and do not wish to further delay the business that occurs at the Annual Meeting.
Please note the following details regarding this date change:
- We will be reposting the Annual Meeting with the new date on our website. If you are already registered for this Saturday, you will need to re-register for the new date. We are not able to transfer event registrations, and also cannot assume that the July date works for all current attendees.
- If you made hotel reservations at the Marriott in Knoxville for this Friday night, they need to be cancelled by 6:00PM on Friday and/or moved to the new date.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this difficult time. Click here for more information on Gail Maupin’s legacy. This page will be updated with information as it becomes available to us.
We look forward to honoring our volunteers and celebrating together on July 14!
