Meet The Leadership

The Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways is governed through policies set by its Board of Directors, and operations carried out by 70+ staff members and nearly 8,000 volunteers!
The Board of Directors rotates on a membership cycle, so that some members are elected each year by the general membership at the council’s annual meeting.
