Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting a huge success!

Last weekend our Council hosted the Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting. The Leadership Conference brought together older girls and adult volunteers for a day of learning, networking, and, of course, fun in Eau Claire, Wisconsin! We heard inspirational words from Kerry Kincaid, the Eau Claire City Council President, as well as past Gold Award recipients. Girls and adults took part in fun sessions ranging from learning to play Kubb (a Nordic lawn game), to belly dancing; as well as educational sessions about Girl Scouting’s highest awards, trip planning, team building, and more.

At the Annual Meeting stewardship and finance reports were presented, adult volunteers were recognized and received awards, and the new GSNWGL board of directors were elected. This year’s Annual Meeting was themed “Girls Change the World” in honor of the Gold Award centennial. Make sure to check out this video about the history, impact, and future of the Gold Award!
