Q: My district does not currently have a Girls Ministries director, therefore, we do not have district Girls Ministries events. What can I do to stay connected and up-to-date on the latest happenings in Girls Ministries?
A: If your district does not currently have a Girls Ministries director or does not conduct district events, we suggestion joining the NGM Forum to connect with other local club leaders across the country. You will glean from other’s ideas and experiences. Simply go to: forums.ag.org/ngm to join. A second suggestion would be to subscribe to Leader’s Connection, the National Girls Ministries electronic newsletter. The newsletter will keep you informed about the latest updates, changes, or national events.

Q: Can the Stars review be broken up into three sections and given at the end of each year?
