Wow – the 2014 Early Bird Registration opened on April 2 and we already have Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines troops renewing their memberships. A big thank you to Troops 864, 1754, 210, 1152 and 1744!
Register Online Now to Receive a $10 Council Gift Card
Each troop that re-registers online by June 20th with at least 5 girl and 2 adult members will receive a $10 Council gift card and Early Bird patches for each girl and leader registering early.
Did you know that we have a new membership fee for 2014? 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 lifetime membership fee is 25 times the annual fee, so on October 1, 2013, the lifetime fee for adults will be $375. If you are interested in purchasing a lifetime membership, please take advantage of the current fee and save $75.
Lifetime Membership makes a Great Gift!
Lifetime membership is a great gift and a great value for our dedicated Girl Scout Ambassadors. Girl Scouts who will graduate high school this year can purchase a lifetime membership at the reduced rate of $156. Girls also have the option to pay all or part of the reduced lifetime membership fee with their Cookie Dough.
Family Partnership Donation!
Renewal time is Family Partnership donation time. A new feature in CORE now allows you to donate to Family Partnership when you renew your membership. Thanks for your support!
Whether you register on C.O.R.E. or by paper, please take time now to renew your membership for the 2014 year! The online process is quick and simple and can be done by the parents (preferred) or through the Troop Management link. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Troops not using the online registration system can register early too by completing and returning their paper girl and adult registration forms with one troop check per batch. Troops must submit their paper registrations by June 20 to receive their Early Bird patches.
