Hi Girl Scout friends, families and community partners,
We can’t wait to kick off the 2014-2015 program year this fall! We have a lot of exciting changes happening around Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines including our new online registration system, a fresh new website, and an online toolkit for our amazing troop leaders.
Signing up a girl for Girl Scouts will be faster and easier. Parents and caretakers will be able to sign up girls online. Automated emails will help parents stay informed of their girl’s status during the registration process as well as during her Girl Scout experience.
Our new volunteer toolkit that will provide troop leaders the information and resources they need. Imagine an entire year’s plans available for a first-time troop leader. The tool kit will evolve over the next few years and grow to include resources for all Journeys, badge programs and more!
And for the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Sale, girls will be able sell cookies online in addition to neighborhood and booth sales. “Digital Cookie 1.0” will launch across the country, allowing Girl Scouts to use technology to set and monitor their goals, manage their money, and communicate with customers.
This is an extremely exciting time across the Council. I believe in what Girl Scouts is doing and where we are going. There is excitement in knowing that these changes will have a tremendous impact on volunteers, families and most importantly, our girls.

Thank you for being passionate about Girl Scouts. Thank you for loving what you do. Thank you for making a difference.
Now, let’s have some fun.
Yours in Girl Scouting,
Lisa Jones, CEO
