GSWPA Council Delegates

As part of our policy-influencing process, members 14 years and older may serve as council delegates and participate in the council democratic process.

Delegates partner with the Board of Directors in developing and implementing strategic policies for the council by providing guidance/input to the Board of Directors on major issues and policies affecting the future of the council and communicating those issues and policies to Service Unit members. A complete "position description outlines these responsibilities.
