Governance

"The ultimate responsibility for the Girl Scout Movement rests with its members."

- Preamble to the Constitution of Girl Scouts of the United States of America 

Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland is governed by an efficient and effective democratic process that includes the core values of a representative democracy, access to decision-makers, and participatory involvement valued at all levels of the council.


Girl Scouts of Ohio's Heartland is a membership organization with volunteers, parents/caregivers, and girls actively engaged in the strategic policy direction of the Council.

Some board members bring a wealth of Girl Scout knowledge, while others bring expertise in areas such as strategic thinking, communications, experience in governance (audit, investments and finance) and decision-making.
