“The WAGGGS Medal of Service is the highest form of recognition that WAGGGS can bestow and is awarded to individuals (volunteers or staff) who have distinguished themselves in their outstanding service to Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting at national and global level. The Medal of Service expresses gratitude to members of the Association whose service is considered to be exceptional, noteworthy and/or extraordinary in nature.”
Natasha Hendrick is a World Board member and previously Vice-Chair of the World Board for the 2015-2017 Triennium.

She has participated in WAGGGS forums, undertaken global research projects, attended Regional and World Conferences, and stood for election to the WAGGGS World Board in 2014. At that time, she brought to the Board a solid understanding of organisational governance and structure and committed to developing strategies to drive membership growth.
As a Vice Chair during the 2015-2017 Natasha provided exceptional leadership support to Nicola Grinstead and has further demonstrated her commitment and passion for Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting, using her wide experience, clear strategic thinking, and strong leadership skills to support strong governance practices.
