Board of Director Officers
A volunteer board of directors sets strategic direction for Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas. Board members represent the broad diversity of our council membership and the communities we serve. Members are recommended by a volunteer nominating committee and approved by the council delegates at the annual council meeting. A formal democratic process facilitates communication between the board of directors and the council's membership.
The volunteer board of directors is elected by GSSWT's membership to ensure that the council:
- manages its affairs according to state and federal law,
- complies with Girl Scouts of the USA charter requirements, and
- secures and allocates the resources needed to deliver the Girl Scout program throughout our jurisdiction.

Board Development Committee
Board development committee members are elected by GSSWT's membership to recommend candidates for the board of directors and the board development committee. The board development committee presents the following for delegate vote at every annual council meeting:
- a single slate of nominees for officers of the council;
- a single slate of nominees for directors; and
- a single slate of nominees for members of the nominating committee.
Every three years, the board development committee also presents a single slate of regional delegates and regional delegate alternates.
GSSWT accepts potential board member and nominating committee member referrals year-round for a single slate presented at our annual council meeting. We place a high priority on recruiting women and men from diverse geographic and racial/ethnic communities.
