Board of Directors

Our Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada council is governed by an amazing volunteer board of directors.

It is composed of women and men who believe in the value of Girl Scouting and the program’s ability to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.

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 are elected by the Delegate Assembly.
