Board of Directors

Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of women and men who believe in the value of Girl Scouting.

Board members use their professional expertise and personal perspectives to make decisions that provide leadership for the council and establish its policies and bylaws. These governance volunteers represent our membership and reflect its diversity, including geographic, racial/ethnic, gender, age and socio-economic. Board members are elected by the full Delegate Body.
