Role of the Lafayette Coordinating Team
The Lafayette Coordinating Team (LCT) is the governing body of the Lafayette Service Unit (LSU). It consists of volunteers and one Council employee. The LCT keeps the Lafayette Service Unit running. The LCT meets monthly to determine appropriate local program/events for girls, ensure accurate and timely paperwork, manage the Service Unit budget, plan leader meetings, disseminate information and communicate with Council.
All members of LCT can be wonderful resources. Feel free to contact any of them with questions or concerns you may have.
The LSU helps nurture and grow the local Girl Scout movement, and supports local Girl Scout leaders in their efforts to provide leadership and personal development opportunities for girls.
