Update for Spring 2010 Delegates Meetings
“The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.”
In adopting GSHPA’s business plan, the Board of Directors decided to invest in experiences and people.
Investing in the experiences that build leaders
Investing in the people who make it happen
Council-wide programs that girls can’t get anywhere else:
Focus upon shared interests
Quality v. Quantity
Offering local and regional special events
Integrated with Girl Scout awards, pathways and community service
Impact across our 30-county region
GSHPA’s January 2010 Cookie College has the potential to become an annual signature program of the Council.
A really strong, visible annual Gold Award Ceremony could be developed into a signature program.
We are excited about the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouting and its potential as a signature program.
Signature programs could enable girls to have a regional impact on issues like health or the environment.
The Council is launching a Signature Program Task Force of volunteers and staff in late March.
Our website and the next PAL will contain programming recommended by the Task Force.
Leaders will still be able to access local activities for girls in their areas through our website and other resources.Signature Programs
The Council must go from good to great in providing outdoor experience for girls.
