National Council Delegates help Girl Scouts of Southern Appalachians honor the voice of our membership.

Every three years, National Council Delegates representing each council in Girl Scouts of the USA gather for the National Convention and conduct business at the National Council Meeting.

GSUSA announces the dates for the 56th National Council Session and Phenom by Girl Scouts event:

"We are excited to announce the dates for the next National Council Session (NCS): Tuesday, July 18, through Thursday, July 20, 2023. 

Also, 'Phenom by Girl Scouts,' an event just for girls, will follow our 56th NCS—kicking off on Thursday, July 20, and wrapping up on Saturday, July 22, 2023.

We cannot wait to see you—along with thousands of other Girl Scouts and supporters of our mission from across the country and around the world—when we gather in Orlando, Florida in July 2023. We know that you are eager to learn more details and we will be sharing additional information in the coming months."
