Our Board

Girls thrive in Girl Scouts. It is a safe space where girls can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges. Adults within the Movement are their champions and advocates, especially as members of our Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest Board of Directors.

Directors use their professional expertise and personal perspectives to collectively advance Girls Scouts to anticipate by providing governance oversight, assisting in the development of the strategic vision, and actively supporting fundraising efforts. As for governance volunteers, directors represent our membership and reflect its diversity, including geographic, racial/ethnic, gender, age, and socio-economic. Board members are elected by the full Delegate Assembly.
