Strategic Learning Refresh

I'd like to extend my gratitude to everyone who is participating in the strategic learning process that will refresh our council's strategies and lead us into the next century of leadership experiences for girls.

Twenty-seven of you devoted all day Saturday to the kick-off this process and we couldn't have assembled a more devoted, smart, thought-provoking, and focused group than all of you!  The future direction of Girl Scouting in GSNYPENN is in your capable hands. MORE
