Be a part of history! Register for the 55th NCS livestream

Girl Scouts around the world are counting down the hours until our 55th (and first-ever virtual) National Council Session (NCS), and the doors are wide open for all members to join. 

Held every three years, NCS brings Girl Scouts’ democratic process to life in a big way. Starting Friday, October 23, through Sunday, October 25, 1,300 delegates from every council across the nation and USA Girl Scouts Overseas, will discuss, debate, and vote on issues important to the Girl Scout Movement and elect national leaders for the 2020–2023 triennium (we invite you to meet the officer candidates for the National Board via this video). This year, a record number of girl members—approximately 400—aged 14–17 will represent their councils as delegates. 

NCS ties into Girl Scouts’ long history of civics education, a history that found new momentum this summer with the launch of new civics badges. So, whether you’re a girl member, volunteer, or lifetime member, please join our sisterhood to watch Girl Scout history being made. 

When COVID-19 required that the event be moved online for the safety of all participants for the first time in its 100+ year history, we knew those who were planning to attend would be disappointed, but we realized it also created an incredible opportunity for all members to watch our democratic process live. 

Register by Sunday, October 18, to receive “gallery guest” access to the livestream and join us as the excitement unfolds—“see” you at NCS!
