2013-2014 Membership Registration has begun!
Re-Registration is Now Open!!!
Re-registration officially takes place between now and June 15. Don't miss ANY of the Girl Scout fun! Take a moment to renew your Girl Scout membership this spring.
The Time is Now!
Parents - please register your Girl Scouts now. Registering now offers the opportunity for families to have one less thing to do during the busy school start up time of year. It provides troop leaders with a chance to see who will be participating in their troops next year; but mostly it provides every Girl Scout who re-registers the chance to say, "I love being a Girl Scout and I am looking forward to the opportunities Girl Scouting will provide me with next year." So, don't miss ANY of the Girl Scout fun!!! Take the opportunity to commit to renewing your Girl Scout's membership now for the 2013-2014 year! You will only receive one email per household so if you have more than one Girl Scout you will need to follow the attached directions to re-register each of them individually. If your daughter will be participating in a different troop next year, re-register her now into her current troop. She will be transferred to her new troop in the fall.
By registering now your Girl Scout will be eligible for these amazing incentives!
- A chance to win a 16gb iPad 2 with wifi! We will choose two winners - one from the Northern Region and one from the Southern Region. Any member who re-registers by June 15 is eligible.

New for 2013-2014!!!
Girl Scout National Dues to Increase to $15 October 2013. Girl Scouts of the USA National Board of Directors have voted to increase annual membership dues for girls and adults to $15 effective now for the 2014 membership year.
If graduating seniors or adult members would like to purchase lifetime memberships at the current rate please do so prior to September 15th. After September 15th, Lifetime Membership will increase to $375. Lifetime Membership for Girl Scout Ambassadors graduating from high school will increase to $195.
The last dues increase was in 2009. Every dollar of the membership dues is sent to GSUSA. This pays for accident insurance covering members participating in approved Girl Scout activities, program development, research, resources, training and services to councils.
At $1.25 per month, Girl Scouting is still a great value; girls who take part in Girl Scouting graduate high school and go to college in higher numbers. As adults, they are more active in their communities, and they earn more income over a lifetime. For those who stay in Girl Scouting at least three years, these success indicators skyrocket!
