The Malta Girl Guides (MGG) have elected a new chief commissioner, deputy chief commissioners and national board. The new chief commissioner, Rachel Aquilina, took the lead of Malta’s largest association for girls and women, following acting chief commissioner Claire Duff earlier this year.

Aquilina has been an active member since she was a child. She started her Girl Guiding journey with the Luqa Girl Guides. Later on, as an adult volunteer, she worked within various working groups and took on various posts at national board level, including those of programme commissioner and south district commissioner. The chief commissioner’s term is three years long and can be renewed for another three years.

MGG president Carmen Camilleri thanked the outgoing chief commissioner and national board members for their commitment and hard work during their term of office. She also wished the best of luck to the new national board members.
