Jump on board as we road trip to the 2017 G.I.R.L (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk Taker, Leader) Convention in Columbus, Ohio! You’ll make friends from across the country as you travel with other G.I.R.L.s, see and learn new things, and pack your bags full of inspiring, life-changing experiences and memories. For the first time, G.I.R.L. will be open to all girls, not just elected delegates. For the latest updates about planned sessions and events, visit G.I.R.L. 2017. We will take charter buses from Charlotte, leaving early Friday morning, October 6 and returning Sunday night, October 8.

Meals are included with the exception of meals during transit—attendees should plan to pay for meals on Friday and Sunday during travel. A $100 non-refundable deposit is due upon registration by 8/1/2017, with the remainder of the balance due by 9/15/17.    

This registration is for girls and adults traveling as part of the GSHNC-sponsored trip. If you are traveling on your own, you will register and book lodging directly through GSUSA. Please visit the G.I.R.L. 2017 website to register as an individual attendee.
