Online Registration Opens April 2!
We're very excited to again offer you the opportunity to renew your membership through our online registration system - C.O.R.E! Online registration is quick, easy and will ensure that you will be able to view your troop roster and register your girls for council-sponsored events in the fall. Please read the full instructions (need to finish) before attempting to renew your troop members. Demos are available for added support on C.O.R.E.
Membership Dues increase for 2014
What is the new membership fee for joining Girl Scouts?
At the 2011 National Council Session in Houston, delegates voted to increase the annual and lifetime membership dues starting with the 2014 membership year. Annual GSUSA dues for girls and adults will be $15.00. The delegates also voted to allow councils to charge an additional council fee of up to the GSUSA membership dues (2014 - $15). GSNCCP will not incorporate this additional fee at this time.
Starting October 1, 2013, lifetime membership for adults will be $375 and reduced lifetime membership for graduating high school seniors will increase to $195.
What is the fee if I register now as a lifetime member?
Adults who want to purchase a lifetime membership may do so at the rate of $300.00 (online until 9/29/13 or by paper 9/1/13).
Girl Scouts who will graduate from high school this year can take advantage of the current discounted lifetime membership rate of $156. To register, girls must submit a completed paper adult registration form along with payment ($156) to the Raleigh Service Center, 6901 Pinecrest Road, Raleigh, NC 27613 by September 1, 2013. All paper lifetime membership forms must be sent separately from annual membership forms.
Lifetime membership is a great gift and a great value for our dedicated Girl Scout Ambassadors. Many parents and troops recognize the girls with a lifetime membership so please share this information with your Ambassador troop leaders. Lifetime membership for graduating seniors can also be paid (in full or partially) with the girl’s cookie dough.
Early Bird Registration Incentives!
We are again pleased to offer you several incentives for completing your renewals by June 20. All troops with at least 5 girls and 2 adults* who register online will receive:
· $10 Girl Scout Gift Card
· Early Bird Patches for each girl and leader registering by the deadline
* Since adults can be assigned to multiple troops, please ensure that you have two adults whose membership resides with the troop to qualify. Contact the help desk if you are unsure.
Troops who choose not to register online may still register early by completing and turning in paper registration forms. Troops registered by June 20 with paper registrations will receive an Early Bird Patch for each girl and leader registering by the deadline.
New Area Incentive
This year each area that meets the goal for early bird registration will be entered in a drawing for $500 in cash to use at the local area. Membership staff have each area’s goals and will share them at their local meeting. Let’s encourage every troop to register early for your areas’ chance to be included in the drawing!
Don't forget, early bird registration is the easiest time to make your Family Partnership donation. Stay tuned for prize drawings and other special incentives! Visit our Family Partnership page for ways to support our Girl Scout family.
