Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana – National Convention Update

The National Convention will be in Salt Lake City, UTAH October 16-October 19, 2014. GSUSA is working with their vendor to create a seamless registration process for both hotel and conference registrations.  There might even be an official airline this year!

Registration will be opening through the official conference website in April. In the meantime, the convention website has launched, and you can visit the link at www.girlscouts.org/convention for the most up to date information.

In addition to our 8 council delegates, up to 7 more girls (14+) are invited to attend the Girl Scout Leadership Institute with their registration fee paid by GSK.Click here to download the application. The application deadline is 5PM EST on April 1st, 2014.

The Girl Scout Leadership Institute will focus this year on #1 issues chosen by girls around the country. Girls will choose a topic, and create a plan to take back to their community which will effect positive change. These topics include:

  • Teen Violence

  • Healthy Relationships

  • Basic Needs (such as hunger, poverty, homelessness, and natural disaster relief)

  • Inclusion/diversity

  • Self - image / body confidence

  • Education

  • Gender Equity.

We also hope to see many GSK volunteers in UTAH!

An approximate budget for personal planning purposes is:

                $600 airfare

                $200 hotel room/night

                $295 visitor pass (all inclusive)  

                $200 food

As we are able to solidify plans for GSK, you will have the opportunity to join us for possible discounted savings. This information will be communicated through our website at www.gskentuckiana.org.as it becomes available through GSUSA AFTER APRIL 1ST, 2014.

 Please contact Laura Goodman, Human Resource Volunteer/Board Relations Manager and your GSK National Conference Coordinator directly at lgoodman@gskentuckiana.org  or 502-276-9729 for more information.  We will share the most up to date information as it become available too.
