Seeking Members for AHG’s National Program Committee

cropped-cropped-ahg-faith-service-fun-logo41.jpgAHG is excited to announce the formation of a National Program Committee with a focus on girl Troop leadership positions! Do you have a passion for the girl leadership experience within the Troop? Are you a parent, Leader, Patriot, or Alumna member of AHG with a desire to serve with others on an AHG National Committee? Please apply if you are excited about this opportunity.

 The purpose of the committee is to design dynamic, Christ-centered girl Troop leadership positions guidelines which incorporate balanced and progressive programming across all Program Levels and to define standardized position titles, expectations, and outcomes. The committee will work towards a reveal at the AHG 2015 Convention.

If God has captured your attention with this opportunity to serve, please complete the National Program Committee Application. Applications will be received through February 15, 2015. Selection and notification of chosen applicants will be completed by February 20, 2015, with the first inaugural committee meeting to be held the week of February 23, 2015.

Please contact Brenda Bayliss, National Program Manager, at if you have any questions.

Looking For A Few Good Shepherds

AHG Women of IntegrityAround here, we get most of our search hits from people who are looking for badge helps, but trying to broaden our focus a little. One feature we’d like to add is a Shepherd‘s Corner — short articles, at least monthly, addressing various aspects of a Shepherd‘s role. How do you encourage the girls’ spiritual growth? Know each girl and family, keeping an eye out for disengagement? Support the spiritual lives of the volunteers? Fun devotionals or teaching lessons? Promote and support the religious recognitions programs?

We’re looking for a couple of experienced Troop Shepherds — past or present — who would be willing to contribute their thoughts on the Shepherd’s role. You would just need to email your text and any graphics you wish to include — we’ll handle the posting and such. We do reserve the right to edit for mechanics and clarity.
Up for trying it? Let us know!
