Our online registration system is getting a makeover!
Welcome back to another exciting year in Girl Scouts! You asked for improvements to the online registration site, and we listened.
Beginning August 13, troop leaders and parents will be asked to re-activate their online accounts. Girls will no longer have their own logins to the online system. Parents and troop leaders will be able to manage their families and troops in a streamlined process, allowing you to register for programs and membership for all your daughters and entire troop at one time, with one transaction!
Please note: To accomplish this makeover, the online registration system will be unavailable from August 9 until August 13.
All adults will be required to create a New Online Account to gain access to the system following the upgrade. You can reuse your old user name and password when creating your new online account if you choose. With your new online account, you will be able to manage yourself, your family and/or troop(s) depending on your current participation status. For example, a troop leader who has a daughter participating in Girl Scouts will be able to manage both her family and troop(s) with a single login.
One person per family will be designated as a Family Manager. This role will be assigned by the system according to the first listed parent or guardian on the child’s account (aka Guardian 1) at the time of the upgrade. Only the Family Manager will be able to view and manage the accounts of children and adult family member(s) from his/her own login. The Family Manager designation can be changed by contacting the council.
Girls under the age of 18 must be managed by a Family Manager and will no longer be able to login under their own name. The adult listed second on the child’s account (aka Guardian 2) will become part of the family and can be managed by the Family Manager. The Guardian 2 is also able to activate and manage their own account if they wish. They will see the guardian relationship with their child, but will be unable to manage their child’s activities or memberships.
Troop leaders with an online account can manage their troop(s) and troop members online. No data will be lost during the upgrade and leaders will be able to manage their troop(s) and their own account as soon as they create their New Online Account.
How to Create a New Online Account
Go to the online membership registration site and click on the New Online Account button on the right hand side of the screen.
Enter the information as requested. This basic information will allow the system to search for your record and help check if you already exist in our database.
One of the following will apply:
- If the system finds you in the database you will see the following message: Congratulations! We found you in the online system. Please go to your email and follow the instructions to activate your online account. Please follow the instructions to complete your account activation.
- If you receive the following message: “We have found you in the system, but in order to continue please contact us.” please follow the instructions and contact the council. This message generally appears when there is no email address on record or if there is a potential but unconfirmed match.
- If the system does not find you in the database you will be prompted to provide additional information to create your profile.
