Meet the Board of Directors

It’s our pleasure to work with the local board of directors to help lead the Girl Scout Movement throughout 45 counties in central Indiana. Our volunteer board of directors guides strategic planning, advocacy, decision-making, partnerships and policy development/oversight. The board includes two girl members, represents the geographic area of the council, the diversity of central Indiana, and is elected by county representatives at the annual meeting.

We strongly believe in the Girl Scout Mission and truly enjoy serving as advocates in our community for all girls in central Indiana. Thank you for your continued support of our organization!
