Call for Girl Board Members

Do you want to be part of making decisions for Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails? Do you want to share your opinion on issues important to you? Do you want to be an advocate for all Girl Scouts?

If your answers are “YES!” then we have a great opportunity for you!

Our current bylaws allow two older Girl Scout representatives to be nominated and serve on the Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails Board of Directors. Girls elected will participate with equal voice in the discussion and debate during board of director’s meetings.

Our girl member’s opinions are important.

We want to hear what you have to say.

Being a girl member of the board of directors will allow you to:

·       Interact with an adult board member(s) in a mentoring relationship

·       help you to build your leadership skills to a new level

·       look great on your college application

The Board Development Committee is currently seeking an additional (one) Girl member to join the Board of Directors.  So what are you waiting for!  Read the packet of materials which is posted on the GSNMT website.  If it looks good to you, then GO FOR IT!

Act now!

The application must be filled out completely, and you will need to send in two letters of reference, one from an adult who knows you (e.g., teacher, pastor, but not a relative) and one from your troop leader, assistant troop leader or service unit manager. Coming to the board meetings is important, so read the requirement on attendance carefully. Complete application and letter of reference form are available below.

We must receive your application and letters of reference by May 24, 2019 for you to be considered by the Board Development Committee for appointment.

How YOU Can Help

The corporate board of directors is a fiduciary body responsible for governance of the council and stewardship of its assets.  It is the only council body empowered to institute or change council policies, although it normally seeks membership input when doing so.  The board is accountable to those bodies from which it derives its authority: the membership, the National Board of Girl Scouts of the USA, state and local government, and the federal government.  The board utilizes the council bylaws and the council articles of incorporation as a legal framework that guides their work.  

If you wish to be considered as a candidate for the Board of Directors, please fill out our application: 2019 Board of Directors Application Form.
