GIRL invite

Every three years, Girl Scouts gather together at the National Council Session (NCS) and Convention to reinvigorate our Movement, celebrate our accomplishments, and chart our future. Our 2017 National Council Session/54th Convention in Columbus, Ohio, promises to honor our cherished traditions and, at the same time, propel the Movement forward for girls and young women.

We hope you will join us in Columbus on October 4-8, 2017. In addition to conducting the business of the Movement, we are launching G.I.R.L. 2017, the inaugural, externally focused conversation on issues affecting girls, engaging girls and adults in substantive dialogue. All participants will have the opportunity to also immerse themselves in exciting educational opportunities; some that are girl only, some adult/girl mixed groups and others adult only focused on how to support girls.

Registration will open in March 2017. Visit the official G.I.R.L. 2017 sitefor information on registration, travel planning, events, sponsors & exhibitors, speakers, and the National Council Session.
