Remember volunteering for the 2002 Olympics and meeting, greeting, and getting to know all those great people from around the world?

In October we will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relive that experience with our Girl Scout Family!

Represent the council! Be an honored member of the Girl Scouts of Utah community! As a National Delegate you can do all of these things. Girl Scouts of Utah truly believes in allowing girls to lead the organization. Because of this, our Council encourages girls 14 and over to apply to be a National Delegate. Being a Delegate challenges girls’ skills and character, and teaches them how to be an active and responsible member of their community. For the 2014 Girl Scout Convention, the Council will be sending six girl Delegates and two adult Delegates who will vote on proposals that will shape the future of Girl Scouting. These Delegates are first nominated to the Board Development Committee who selects nominees after an application review. They are then voted into a three-year term of service by the local delegates at GSU’s Annual Meeting. Bianca, a previous National Delegate who represented GSU and voted at the Houston Convention in 2011 said, “Being a delegate has helped boost my confidence, increased my listening and reasoning abilities, and my ability to take action.” The position allows girls to grow their leadership abilities in ways that will be useful in everyday life, as well as on resumes and college applications. During their three-year term, Delegates are sent detailed proposals which alter or change the constitution, bylaws or policies of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. Just as we send congress to legislate in Washington D.C., National Delegates consider each proposal and vote to Girls wishing to become a National Delegate must be a registered Girl Scout, 14 years of age or older, and able to represent their council for three years. Girls interested in becoming a National Delegate can contact the GSU staff in January 2016 when the Board Development Committee will be soliciting for a new slate of National Delegates who will travel to the next Convention in Columbus, Ohio! Girls everywhere have been improving and fostering the growth of an organization they love. You can too! Bianca felt the most important skill she learned from being a National Delegate was being able to take action. “I realized the proposals were from people who saw a problem and then took action. This helped foster my belief in how a single person can make a big difference,” Bianca said. Outside of the triennial Convention, National Delegates attend Town Meetings and the Annual Meeting. “This taught me not only the political process, but also what it means to represent other people,” said Alternate Delegate Vanessa. implement the change or dismiss it. Months before the Convention, National Delegates meet with council staff for trainings on parliamentary procedure and then meet with their Community Leadership Teams to review the proposals and get feedback from Community volunteers. While girls are encouraged to listen to others’ opinions, the policies governing National Delegates are very clear – they should vote with their own opinions and conscience after carefully researching the proposal. “ Being a delegate has helped boost my confidence, increased my listening and reasoning abilities, and my ability to take action. — Bianca ” “ This taught me not only the political process, but also what it means to represent other people. —Vanessa ” GS U N ow 11 NEWS | TROOP Zions Bank is proud to support the Girl Scouts of Utah Visit us at zionsbank.com 12 G SUNow News | council COUNCIL NEWS Girl Scouts of Utah Receives National Recognition Exciting First for Utah Cabin Collaboration Garners National Attention Girl Scouts of Utah’s innovative cabin collaboration with the University of Utah’s School of Architecture was a huge success for both organizations. The project introduced girls to STEM-related fields while designing and constructing cabins at Trefoil Ranch, which are being used this year for the first time. Girls helped to guide the process, inputting design ideas and thoughts about sustainable construction techniques – many of their ideas were incorporated into the cabins. The push to build as sustainably as possible led the U of U team to use wood from beetlebark forests. These “dead” forests are fire-risks and until recently the wood was thought to be unusable. However, in a first for Utah, the wood was treated and interlocked together thereby making it suitable for building purposes. The wood was even harvested and milled near the Girl Scout camp, making it even more environmentally friendly. The University of Utah’s School of Architecture has received two awards from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, a nonprofit with more than 500 supporting member-schools dedicated to advancing the quality of architectural education. In an unprecedented decision, the juries for both the Collaborative Practice Award and Diversity Achievement Award decided the project was a valuable example of best practices for both awards. GSUSA is now looking at the project which gave girls the opportunity to learn about construction, engineering, and sustainable building practices, as a model for future construction projects at other Councils. Girl Scouts of Utah is excited and proud to announce Debbie Nielson, past Board Chair and Acting CEO has been nominated to the Girl Scout National Board of Directors! Just 30 men and women from diverse backgrounds serve on the National Board and this will be the first time Utah has been represented! A vote at the National Convention in October will formally place Debbie in this new position and we are wishing her the best of luck! 2014 Tough Cookie More than 400 attended our International Women’s Day Gala which celebrated the accomplishments of Natalie Gochnour, the Associate Dean in the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. Gochnour has served governors and presidents and spoke on the growing role of women in the economy. GS U N ow 13 NEWS | TROOP Troop News Two Generations of Girl Scouts Michelle Stimpson, guest writer shares her passion for Girl Scouts I believe in Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts can do Anything! The first thing my daughter wanted to do when we reached camp was to ride a horse. Since my daughter is only six-years-old and had never ridden a horse before, I expected the camp counselors to set her on a horse and lead it around a ring. I was slightly horrified to learn that they intended to let my tiny daughter ride a horse down a mountain on a trail ride. The camp counselor told me not to worry and I choked back tears as they boosted up my baby girl onto a horse named, Chief, the same horse I had ridden twenty-three years earlier. Chief plodded down the mountain and when he decided to walk off the trail in search of a mouthful of grass, my six-year-old yanked the reins and led the horse back onto the trail as she had been instructed. “She’s a natural cowgirl!” the counselor remarked to me. “She’s a Girl Scout,” I said. For the next two days I watched my naturally timid daughter meet new friends, eat new food, and try new things. On the second night of camp, she stood in front of the entire camp and led 100 girls and women in singing a camp song. I know that as a Girl Scout, my daughter is going to learn to be both a leader and a team player. She’s going to learn to not just tolerate other people’s differences, but to embrace them. She’s going to learn that she can be anything she wants to be – whether she chooses to be a cowgirl, a cheerleader, a mom, a CEO, a mechanic, or a Girl Scout leader - because Girl Scouts can do anything. I spent seven years of my childhood as a member of the Girl Scouts and that organization created some of the best and most significant memories of my life. My earliest memory of being a Girl Scout was the day the camp brochure arrived in the mail. My mom argued that I wasn’t old enough, but I was eight and if the Girl Scouts said I was old enough for overnight camp, then I was going. I believed that Girl Scouts could do anything. That first summer at camp I rode a horse by myself, I hiked up a mountain, I slept in a tent, and I made new friends. Most importantly, I gained independence and confidence in myself – two things that only increased during my time as a Girl Scout. Whether I was selling cookies door to door, or leading a flag ceremony, learning first aide or changing a car tire, I was made to believe that I could do anything. Last year, my daughter became a Girl Scout. I was thrilled to learn that the same overnight camp that I went to when I was eight-years-old offered a “She and Me Camp.” I had a rare opportunity to relive my experiences at summer camp with my daughter. 14 G SUNow News | Troop Girl Scouts from Summit and Wasatch Counties collected hundreds of pounds of food and supplies for over a month to give to local food pantries.
