Service Unit Delegates

Service Unit Delegates are members of the Girl Scout Movement that reside in a service unit within the Council's jurisdiction who are voted by their service unit to be the conduit through which matters of governance are understood and communicated and to represent the service unit with one voice. Delegates shall serve a term of one (1) year or until their successors are elected. Delegates may serve no more than three consecutive terms. Terms of office shall begin at the time delegates are elected.

Service Unit Alternate Delegates

Service Unit Alternate Delegates are members of the Girl Scout Movement also residing within a service unit in the Council's jurisdiction who are voted by their service unit to stand in place of the delegate and assume their responsibilities (including voting rights) should the service unit delegate not be able to carry out their role during a specified period.

National Delegates

National Delegates represent Colonial Coast and cast votes at the Girl Scouts of the USA National Convention, held every three years. Nominations are made prior to the Council's Annual Meeting. National Delegates are elected at Annual Meeting and participate in training and preparations prior to attending the National Convention.

What takes place at the Annual Council Awards Celebration?

Girl Scout volunteers are awesome! Whether in the form of a simple thank you for a small job well done or a formal commendation for years of faithful service, we use the Annual Council Awards Celebration to put the spotlight on those adults who are making a difference. In Girl Scouts, there are several Girl Scout national awards as well as Council awards that are presented to volunteers.

Learn about the awards and details on how to nominate someone.

Buck Harris Award

In addition to the adult awards, one girl award is presented at the celebration, the Buck Harris Award. This award was established upon the retirement of Buck Harris, a former executive director of the Virginia Tidewater Girl Scout Council. Buck dedicated her life to providing the finest in camping and outdoor education programs. The recipient receives a framed certificate and a gift certificate towards attending a GSCCC sponsored summer camp. To qualify for the Buck Harris award, a girl must be nominated by the girls in her troop, group or service unit or by an adult who is aware of her qualifications.
