Girl Scouts - ATC

By Connie Walker, Volunteer Services and Resource Development Executive

Every year our council has the pleasure of hosting our Administrative Team Conference (ATC). It’s a day of fun and training, a day to connect with friends and council staff, a day that reminds us why we are Girl Scout Volunteers – our girls!

This was my first ATC and it is now officially one of my favorite days of the year! For those whom I didn’t have the chance to meet, my name is Connie Walker and I am the new Volunteer Services Executive. A long time volunteer, this role combines my passion for giving back, developing and supporting fellow volunteers, and creating a culture of appreciation all year long. I am so excited to serve in this role and kick off the new Girl Scout year!

Volunteering has played an integral and important part of in my life. From a young candy striper at South Suburban Hospital in Chicago to a recent Brownie Co-Leader here in our council to dedicating my time to my two sons and the numerous activities and organizations they have been a part of…being a volunteer is a part of my core. I’m sure many of our volunteers can relate!

I am so excited to support all our amazing volunteers in this new role and if you are ever in Raleigh feel free to drop by to say hello, give me a quick call with a question, or send an email if you ever need help. I’m here for you and our girls 100%.

Additionally, to help set us all up for success in the new year, I wanted to share our amazing ATC sessions and presentations below for those who were not able to attend. Enjoy the presentations below that range from council updates shared during the opening session to What’s New with Outdoor Adventures!

Thank you to all our rock star volunteers – for all the time, dedication, and passion you put forth so our girls can shine brighter and brighter each year. I’m so looking forward to working with you in the near future.

Ready to Volunteer?

It’s easy! Volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible, encouraging and rewarding.  It’s for young and old, stay-at-home moms and working moms, those without kids of their own, someone who was never a Girl Scout, and even men!

88% of our volunteers believe that THEIR LIFE IS BETTER because they volunteer with Girl Scouts.

By sharing the Girl Scouts experience with girls and other volunteers, you’ll be the role model she needs and together, challenge yourself with new activities and create lasting memories.

With Girl Scouts, you can:

  • Become a Troop Co-leader – Help ensure every girl who wants to be a Girl Scout can. We need more leaders! This is our greatest need. Volunteers as a Troop Co-leader allows more girls to participate in Girl Scouting.
  • Serve on our Service Unit – Service Unit is Girl Scout jargon; it’s our way of saying local community. You’ll work with other adult volunteers in your community to provide troops support and build the Girl Scout experience in your town as an Event Director or Area Cookie Manager.
  • Join a Troop of your own – You can join a troop as an adult. Find a troop that meets at a time convenient with your schedule and help them as a troop volunteer. You can serve as Troop Treasurer to manage their finances or help them explore the great outdoors as a Camp Certified Adult.
