Early Bird

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 22:45



Early Bird registration gives current Girl Scouts and troops/groups the opportunity to register early for the upcoming Girl Scout year (October 2013 through September 2014) before the fall rush! Re-register your Girl Scout membership for the upcoming year today! Please note that dues have increased to $15/member, $195/graduating girl lifetime membership dues and $375/lifetime membership dues.

Important information regarding dues increase

At the 51st Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) National Council Session in 2008, the National Board of Directors asked that we anticipate a membership dues increase from $12 per girl to $15 for the 2013-2014 membership year. This message is intended to inform members of that change.

The new membership fee will be incorporated in the registration process beginning with 2014 Early Bird registration this spring. The last dues increase was in 2009. Because of feedback from volunteers, we know where our members want us to focus our resources over the next few years. Every dollar of the membership dues is sent to GSUSA to help support tools for delivery of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, accident insurance to cover members participating in approved activities and technology that makes joining Girl Scouts fast and easy.

At $1.25 per month, Girl Scouting is an incredible value. Girls who participate in Girl Scouts graduate high school and go to college at a greater rate. As adults, they become more active in their communities and earn more income over a lifetime. For those who stay in Girl Scouts for three or more years, these success indicators soar.

We will continue to offer financial assistance to families who may need to cover the cost of membership. Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas is committed to providing a positive experience to every girl who wants to be a Girl Scout.

As Girl Scouting grows, so does the need to expand services in order to provide the best possible leadership opportunities for all members. Thank you for your investment in the future of our girls.
