G.I.R.L. 2017 National Convention

The time is now to give girls and young women the tools to empower themselves for a lifetime of leadership, connect and share ideas with one another in friendship, and act together in true team spirit to let the world know girls can make awesome, game-changing things happen. 

Every three years, Girl Scouts gather together at the National Council Session (NCS) and Convention to do these things and more! Our 2017 National Council Session/54th Convention promises to honor our cherished traditions and, at the same time, propel the Movement forward for girls and young women.

From October 4–8, 2017, you can join your fellow Girl Scouts as we come together to celebrate girls in a big, big way. From educational sessions to inspiring speakers, and tons of one-of-a-kind FUN, this is the girl-power event of the year. You don’t want to miss it!

Applications have closed for the 2017 National Council Delegates. Check back here for the 2018 National Council Delegate application. As a Delegate, you help determine how Girl Scouts' future will look!
