October 15 Implementing Your Friends and Family Meeting — Hosting a friends and family meeting at the start of your troop experience can set the stage for success. This initial meeting is a great time to recruit family volunteers, set strong and transparent communication practices and inquire about interests and hobbies that will help expand opportunities for your girls. Join the conversation and learn from experienced volunteers as they share strategies for successfully planning and hosting a friends and family meeting. Last day to register is October 13.

Over the summer we worked to improve our volunteer resources.
Check out the new version of Volunteer Essentials, the go-to volunteer resource for all things Girl Scouts. Covering a wide variety of Girl Scout volunteer questions including the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girl safety, cookies and much more, Volunteer Essentials is critical to your volunteer success.
GSEM Volunteer Policies and Procedures were updated and approved by our board of directors in June. Every girl and adult member is responsible for adhering to our policies and procedures.
Reminder! Annually all volunteers must accept the Online Volunteer Agreement which details volunteer and council responsibilities.
Going on a trip? Question about safety guidelines? Follow the Safety Activity Checkpoints.
