Your County may have a President and Vice Presidents; this will be stated in the constitution. The County President is normally a non-executive (non-voting) member of the County Team, and their role will be different in every County. It is important to set the terms of the role when the appointment is made.
If your County does have a President, they are appointed by you as the Commissioner in consultation with the County Team.
The President’s role may include:
- presenting awards
- being an Ambassador within the County and ensuring that other Ambassadors have current and correct information
- attending County Team meetings
- attending local guiding functions within the County
- keeping up to date with developments in guiding
- providing advice to the County, where needed
- keeping Vice Presidents up to date with County news and events.
Counties may also wish to appoint a Vice President whose role may include:
- providing support to the President
- deputising for the President when needed
- attending and supporting local events.
In order for the President to be able to fulfil her role she must be kept informed about what is happening in the County and receive information about local events.
