If you have young women that meet the above criteria, we ask that you encourage them to apply as we hope that every Member Organization will be represented at the Forum in 2011.
Registration forms are available from this website. Please note there are 3 sections, to be completed by the participant and by the International Commissioner (or equivalent).
The registration form must be submitted by each Member Organization (MO) to WAGGGS by 19 November.
