Message from the


Dear friends and members of

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois,

It has been an honor and pleasure to

serve the membership, volunteers, and

staff of Girl Scouts of Central Illinois

as your board chair for the past two

years. Little did I know when I first

became a Girl Scout board member in

1994 what opportunities and

experiences I would have, and all the

people I would meet and friends I

would make not only within our

council but across the United States.

While we are thrilled with where we are after two years as

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois, there is always work to do

and improvements to be made. We must constantly

measure, evaluate, and change to meet the needs of and stay

on pace with the girls and the volunteers who support and

deliver our program. We are particularly proud of our ability

to meet these needs and strive continuously to improve.

I would like to personally thank the board, board committee

members, staff, leaders, and girls of our council for the

opportunity to help as best as I could – with the help of every

one of you. The GSCI Board Development Committee and

Board of Directors will continue to help you in our collective

mission to develop girls of courage, confidence, and character.

I look forward to serving the council in other ways going

forward. Thank you all.


Sharon Riechers

Message from the


Dear Girl Scouts of Central Illinois family and friends,

October 1, 2009, marked the second anniversary of Girl Scouts of Central Illinois, and on this

momentous day we have much to celebrate! While this annual report is intended to focus

literally on the past twelve months, it is the last twenty-four months, the previous nine-plus

decades, and the legacy of those who came before us that we are actually celebrating.

Today, two years into realignment, GSCI reaps the benefit of a strong Girl Scouting foundation that makes our successes

today achievable. As we prepare to launch our first ever Alumnae Association for Girl Scouts of Central Illinois, we are

already eager to experience the excitement of connecting old friends with new and expanding the endless possibilities that

our girl leaders of the last nine decades envisioned for the girls of today.

In recent retrospect, GSCI can be proud of its 22,000-plus girl members and 5,000-plus adult volunteers. This year’s

members continued the tradition of celebrating our Gold, Silver, and Bronze recipients by awarding a total of 198

awards. Our Girl Scouts, with the help of their leaders, see the importance of demonstrating a strong commitment

to their own leadership development thus helping make the world a better place. In addition to our award recipients

we can also celebrate the amazing impact made by more than 890 service project participants who took seriously the

call to give back to their communities. Along the way, girls still had and made time for a little fun because as we look

through the eyes of our girls, while their program participation, leadership development, and community service is taking

place, they’re here for the fun and friendship, perhaps not realizing at this point in their lives what a personal and

profound impact they are making on the world or how each and every one of our more than 200 program opportunities

is fun, yes, but also objectives-driven – objectives that through their achievement allow our 5 -17 year-olds to become

the leaders of their own entrepreneurial spirit.

Financially, the council continues to invest with the help of many of you, our very generous donors, in building

capacity to support girls and volunteers across our thirty-eight counties through the development of a Long Range

Property Plan and a Strategic Learning Plan. During this past year current board members, former legacy council

board members, community members-at-large, and staff came together to create an innovative and bold strategy

designed to guide us through the next five to ten years. By addressing five key priorities – technology, pathways

development, volunteer management, diversified funding, and contemporary image – we are prepared to perpetuate

our Girl Scout legacy well beyond the Girl Scout 100th anniversary in 2012 and into the coming decades.

Our final celebration comes in the form of understanding that it is with strength of purpose, commitment to the

movement, faith and trust in the legacy left to us by the Girl Scouts who came before us, and dedication to preserving

the “green” that God gave us, that in combining the strength of our predecessors with continued leadership vision of

the Girl Scouts of today, not only have we already made an impact but we are poised to continue, indeed, making the

world a better place.

I would like to thank all of our volunteers for the countless hours of service they have given us over the past twelve

months, our donors for their commitment to continuing our financial solidarity, and a terrific staff for working to

inspire today’s girls to lead tomorrow!

Girl Awards

Girls who achieve the Girl Scout Silver Award and the Girl Scout Gold Award demonstrate a strong commitment

to their own leadership development and to making the world a better place. Achievement of these awards

signifies a girl’s efforts to make a lasting impact in her community through identifying a community need and

devising her own original project to help meet that need. The Girl Scout Silver Award is the second highest

award in Girl Scouting and the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette may earn. The Girl Scout Gold Award is

the highest award a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador may earn and is the highest award in Girl Scouting.

Obtaining these awards is a leadership adventure of the highest order in which girls leave the world a better

place than they found it and discover their own amazing potential along the way.

11 Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting in Review

Girl Scouts of Central illinois

Second Annual Meeting

November 14, 2009

Marriott hotel and Conference Center

Normal, iL

The entire council came together in one location for a day of business, fun,

and celebration at the second annual meeting of Girl Scouts of Central Illinois.

The occasion was made even more momentous due to the fact that it included

a Girl Scout Extravaganza with over 500 girls, a leader appreciation luncheon that

served over 100 key volunteers, and a very special keynote speaker, Connie L. Lindsey.

The room was overflowing with staff, volunteers, and girls during this standing room only event as Girl Scouting’s

highest ranking volunteer shared from her wealth of experiences. We would like to thank the following Girl Scouts

for helping to make the day special by leading the day’s opening flag ceremony; leading us in the Pledge

of Allegiance, the Girl Scout Promise, and the Girl Scout Law; and retiring the colors: Brownie Troop 1126,

Junior Troop 1392, Junior Troop 1577, Cadette Troop 1126, and Cadette Troop 1204. After the meeting,

Ms. Lindsey met local Girl Scouts for photo opportunities and distributed President’s patches.

A volunteer appreciation luncheon immediately following the annual meeting brought together in one room

over 100 leaders from across the council. This time of networking and fellowship gave the council the

opportunity to thank leaders for all that they do for girls – delivering the Girl Scout program, serving as role

models, and so much more.

Simultaneous with the annual meeting, a Girl Scout Extravaganza provided girls of all ages the opportunity to

experience a day of Girl Scout fun and education. Highlights of the extravaganza included an archery range, a

climbing wall, hands-on environmental displays, summer camp previews, and educational booths about

Girl Scout Journeys, the new GSCI Alumnae Association, and the Family Partnership Campaign.

Girl Scouting builds girls of

courage, confidence, and character

who make the world a better place.

In Girl Scouts, girls discover their own potential, connect with others in meaningful ways, and take action by

giving back to their communities. We facilitate this process through programs which align with the Girl Scout

Leadership Experience. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience provides the opportunity for girls to

• make new friends

• try new things

• take trips to exciting new places

• develop leadership skills to last a lifetime

• be the best they can be

• change the world one community at a time

Our Mission 12

The result is strong, courageous, confident girls and young women with the power to achieve their goals and

dreams while making a difference in the lives of others. Whatever a girl dreams of doing, we can set her on a

path to that achievement and light the way for all kinds of exciting discoveries on her journey.

Accomplishing our mission requires a great deal of assistance beyond our own dedicated staff. GSCI

currently boasts an adult membership of over 5,000 committed and caring volunteers who help us deliver

the Girl Scout program throughout central Illinois. By their leadership example and encouragement of teamwork,

our volunteers show girls what is possible. We are also grateful to the individual and corporate donors who

help us to grow our programs and make sure they are available to any girl who wishes to participate. Our

community partners allow us to reach out to girls who do not have the means to reach out to us first. In

these ways the mission of Girl Scouting extends beyond schools, family homes, and Girl Scout service

centers to enrich and be enriched by all facets of our communities.

13 Membership


The Girl Scout program is available to any girl age 5 – 17 through six pathways

which include camp, special events, themed activities in series, travel, and virtual

participation, in addition to the traditional troop model.

Membership Highlights:

• GSCI’s membership was comprised of 22,276 girl members and 5,348 adult

volunteers, of which 674 are lifetime members

• We hold a 15.4% market share, well above the 11% national average for

market share, and boast a 1:4.7 adult to girl ratio

Girl Scout Journeys provide members of all age levels the opportunity to gain

a global and multicultural perspective, learn about the history of Girl Scouting

and its traditions, embrace the values expressed in the Girl Scout Promise and

Law, become environmentally aware, and develop attitudes of self-understanding

that promote healthy living for themselves and others

Grades K - 1 (Daisy) 3,604 members Grades 2 - 3 (Brownie) 9,617 members

Grades 4 - 5 (Junior) 6,087 members Grades 6 - 8 (Cadette) 2,286 members

Grades 9 - 10 (Senior) 432 members

Total 22,276 members

Grades 11 - 12 (Ambassador) 250 members


Program 14

Through a wide range of program offerings girls have the opportunity to pursue their known passions as

well as expand their horizons by traversing outside their comfort zones, and we are thrilled to see so many

of our members taking advantage of these opportunities. Over 11,000 girls attended council-sponsored

activities throughout the school year, an increase of 47% over the previous year. Our commitment to make

the Girl Scout program available to any girl who wishes to participate meant that we provided financial

assistance to nearly one out of every two girls who participated in our program offerings. While programs

are designed with fun, friendship, and adventure in mind, they are also designed to deliver the keys to

leadership that allow each girl to grow to be all that she can be. As we watch girls achieve Bronze, Silver,

and Gold Awards and participate in community service, we get to see that leadership development

happening right before our eyes.

Fund Development 18


GSCI is fortunate to have the support of numerous corporations and foundations in fulfilling our mission to

develop the leadership potential in all girls. In partnership with our corporate and foundation supporters, we

Illinois received two major grants from Girl Scouts of the USA to support girl programs in central Illinois. A

$50,000 uniquely ME! Dove self-esteem grant allows us to provide self-esteem activities to 10,000 girls in
