September 21, 2016 Edition
We’re gearing up for another exciting Girl Scout year and have some important reminders and resources to share with our Girl Scout families:
Save Her Spot: Re-register Your Girl Scout by September 29!
The 2016-2017 membership year begins October 1. Our member registration system will be offline for maintenance/updates on Friday, September 30, so be sure to renew your Girl Scout’s membership by September 29 to save her spot!
On October 1, any remaining troop openings will be made available to new or transferring members. Re-register your girl today so she’ll continue to enjoy the adventure, friendship, and fun of Girl Scouts!
Please note: girls using Cookie Dough toward their member registration will need to use a paper registration form. Paper registrations take longer to process and must be completed BEFORE September 29 to continue membership for the 2016-2017 membership year.
