Deadline  September 30 to Register Troops

Troop leaders, you have until September 30 to re-register your troop members online. After Sept. 30 parents will have to register their girls. Re-registering NOW through the troop is much easier than having each parent register girls. When a parent/caretaker creates an account, the information must match our records exactly, otherwise a duplicate profile is created. With the new family eBiz, the parent will create on account as the guardian and all their girl members are listed under their family.

 

After October 1, we will allow troop leaders and parents to register NEW members. Please be sure the girl registering as new has never been a Girl Scout. If you are unsure, please contact us at eBiz@gsnypenn.org and we will check prior membership.
