About Convention

The Girl Scout National Council Session and G.I.R.L. 2017 is a one-of-a-kind gathering to be held in Columbus, Ohio October 4-8, 2017. Held every three years, the National Council Session is the movement-wide business meeting for Girl Scouts, where our most important decisions are collectively made.

The G.I.R.L. 2017 (also known as “convention”) portion of the gathering focuses on issues affecting girls in our country and around the world. Thousands of people will attend G.I.R.L. 2017, including Girl Scouts of all ages, adult Girl Scout members, Girl Scouts staff, and non-members of all ages who care about the issues affecting girls today. As a member of the Girl Media Team, you will have a very important role at NCS/G.I.R.L. 2017!

About the Girl Media Team

Together with 11 other Girl Scouts from across the United States, you will serve as spokespeople for the Girl Scout Movement in pre-recorded “Convention TV” spots, live television and radio interviews, and more.

You might put on your reporter hat and interview G.I.R.L. 2017 attendees, exhibitors or speakers. You might serve as an “anchor” in the Convention TV news room. You might (and probably will!) be asked to answer questions about Girl Scouts and speak to the experience of a G.I.R.L. with reporters from both local and national media outlets. You will show event participants and the public what courage, confidence, and character look like! You will also participate in video and photo shoots to be used by Girl Scouts of the USA during and after NCS/G.I.R.L. 2017.

With support and guidance from staff members from Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington, Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa, and Girl Scouts of Green and White Mountains, you will build leadership skills, explore personal areas of interest at an age-appropriate level (e.g. communications, public relations (PR), media relations, television broadcasting, and more), develop public speaking skills, and interact with professional experts, guest speakers, and reporters before and during the event.

As a member of this group you will be expected to attend and actively participate in scheduled planning and training meetings, complete training assignments, and communicate regularly with Girl Media Team staff. You must be able and willing to attend monthly virtual planning meetings and media training, and be able and willing to travel to G.I.R.L. 2017 October 4-8, 2017 (travel, lodging, meals and convention fees will be provided by Girl Scouts of the USA).
