A new Cadette-Senior-Ambassador Planning Board is starting up soon. Here are details!

Extra - Extra! What a great idea. 
We used to have a Cadette-Senior Planning Board based in Bowling Green. Now we have one which will be based at Barren Ridge Camp, in Glasgow.

The first (organizational) meeting is very soon, in 4 days!

A new Cadette-Senior-Ambassador Planning Board is starting up very soon. All girls and leaders from the entire Caveland area are welcome to attend and join. Its first meeting is soon, in 4 days, Nov 30. Here is the official announcement via Leslie Willoughby:

"Service Unit Managers and leaders

There will be an Older Girl Planning Board Meeting November 30th from 2:30-4:30 pm at Camp Barren Ridge in Glasgow, KY.  All Cadette, Senior and Ambassador girls are invited.  Officials will be elected, see attached the process of how an Older Girl Planning Board runs.  Please forward to your leaders ASAP."

See below:
"Each troop is entitled to have two voting representatives at all meetings if there are more than five girls from the troop present.  If there are less than five members of a troop present, the troop is entitled to one vote.  In the absence of an elected representative, any attending troop member may vote as an alternate in her place.  Representatives are elected to a one-year term."

A copy of Bear Creek's CSA Planning Board's ByLaws and another file with tips and Bylaws from the Pennyroyal GS Board of the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana is available to download from the unofficial KYANA Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KYANA.GS/.

Area 16's Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors requested to have a CSA Planning Board. Good job, Area 16 girls!

Files (2) were sent to all leaders to look at, as they will be templates for the new Bylaws and have ideas for what the group will be like.

#2. Tips for Starting an Older Girl Planning Board, combined with ByLaws of the Pennyroyal Girl Scout Board of the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana (revised 2012).
