The weather is getting warmer, the school year is headed towards winding down, and we want to celebrate all of the dedication, hard work, and accomplishments of all Girl Scouts — volunteers, parents, and girls alike. Here are some great events coming up over the next few months. We hope we’ll see you there!
Circle of Excellence
Each year, we hold Circle of Excellence events across the council to recognize and celebrate our dedicated volunteers, graduating seniors, and girls who have earned their Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards this year.
Volunteers are the key to our success, and we want to show you our appreciation for all you do. This year, we will be adding an inspirational time at the close of the event for volunteers to learn, share, and grow together. You may even meet our new CEO Beth Shelton!
Psst…Have you nominated a volunteer for a Volunteer Award yet? Be sure to submit your nominations by March 8!
Register for the Circle of Excellence near you today:
- April 2: Sioux City and Council Bluffs
- April 16: Mason City and Fort Dodge
- April 23: Des Moines and Oskaloosa
Do you want to learn more about how the council is run? Would you like to have the chance to vote on council business for the upcoming year? Every year, Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa holds an Annual Meeting to bring together delegates from across the council, board members, and staff to do just that!
The 2016 Annual Meeting will be held on April 5, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. via a teleconference.
All members are welcome to join in on the call (only delegates are allowed to vote). Find out more info on our website.

Gold Award Breakfast
Join us on April 12, 2016 at 7:30 a.m. at the Renaissance Des Moines Savery Hotel for a new and exciting event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, the Gold Award (formerly the Golden Eaglet, Golden Eagle of Merit, First Class and Curved Bar)!
This fundraising event will celebrate the wonderful impact that Iowa Girl Scouts, past and present, have made in their communities.
