ALBANY, N.Y. -- The National Girl Scouts organization may be facing a crisis, but in the Capital Region- the interim CEO of the Northeastern Region tells the NEWS CENTER it's a different story.
The Girl Scouts of the USA has been seeing a decline in membership, volunteers and revenue, with 2.2 million youth members- down from 2.8 million in 2003.
There are also reports of rifts and high tension between leadership and grassroots members.
Despite what is happening on a national level, the interim CEO of the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York says they haven't had the same problems. But, over the past few years, the chapter says the face of the Girl Scouts has changed, including the structure and programming.
There are reports of layoffs on a national level, but the northeastern chapter says they do not have plans to reduce staff.
And Monday night at the Rose Garden in Central Park, 50 girls from the Schenectady Girl Scout Service Unit 210 were welcomed into another level of girl scouting.
