Girl Guides Australia (GGA) is pleased that following a period of transition and transformation, the Governance Framework of GGA has been updated to improve the effectiveness of the delivery of Girl Guiding in Australia and elevate the voice of girls and young women.
This presents more opportunities for Guiding members to work in a national role. Young women are encouraged to consider the new opportunities. There will be a transition to the updated framework over the next six months and roles will be advertised at different intervals.
The first roles to be advertised are two Assistant Chief Commissioner positions. These roles will work closely with and support the Chief Commissioner of Girl Guides Australia (GGA) to lead Girl Guiding in Australia (GGiA). Each of the Assistant Chief Commissioner roles has a specific focus within the GGA Governance Framework.
Members of State Girl Guide organisations who are looking for a new challenge are encouraged to apply and join the GGA team of volunteers focussed on enabling girls around Australia to experience and grow through Girl Guiding.
