FAMILY MANAGEMENT FAQS
As a lifetime member, how am I to be designated each year as the troop leader (01) of a troop?
You will be able to access your GSH online account and self-report your position code which will then require verification by the registration staff.
What about adding PayPal as a method of payment?
GS online account is hosted by GSUSA and we can only use payment forms that they have set up. PayPal may be added at a later date.
Why can’t I register my daughter from my account?

Can I use GS Account if I decide to not share my email?

I want to check my “Race & Ethnicity” record
Clicking on “Update Race & Ethnicity” allows you to edit the current information in the database. This information is voluntary and used for statistical purposes only. Providing this information helps to ensure community support and funding for Girl Scouts in your local community.
How long will it take to process any change of membership information?
Some changes can be done by the member through their GS online account. These changes are immediate. The registration staff tries to have all Change of Member Information forms processed within a week of receipt at the office but the process may take longer during peak season.
