The theme for this year’s Early Bird Online Re-registration is “ROARING into Girl Scouts.”

Early Bird Re-Registration has now ended. Early Bird patches will be distributed by the Service Units in late summer.  ‘On time’  re-registration is currently underway for the 2014-2015 Girl Scout year. For questions about re-registration, contact the Council Registrar, Mileneda Joseph at mjoseph@gssef.org.

How does Spring come in? Like a lion! EARLY BIRD Flier imageSo this year, Girl Scouts is celebrating Spring by ROARING into Early Bird Re-Registration. This is the time for currently registered girls and adults to re-register for the 2014-2015 Girl Scout year and earn awesome new incentives and rewards. Early Bird happens from April 15 – May 31, 2014. It’s only for those girls and troops who are registered as of April 14, 2014. Troop Leaders can re-register the troop within e-Council, the GSSEF online membership database, in one fast and easy transaction using the troop debit card.

Important – Please Read: The e-Council database is fully compatible with Internet Explorer 10. Be sure the internet platform you are using to access e-Council for roster updates, Early Bird re-registration, program and adult learning registration is Internet Explorer 10 (or a lower version). Using Chrome, Safari or Firefox will not allow full functionality of the database.

Early Bird FAQ’s

Every Early Bird girl and adult (leader/co-leader) receives the 2015 Early Bird patch.

Every Early Bird girl and adult (leader/co-leader) receives the 2015 Early Bird patch.

Why Early Bird?

Mainly because it makes so much sense – as you can see:
  • Troops that participate in Early Bird Re-registration benefit from the opportunity to get an early start on the next Girl Scout year.
  • Early re-registration ensures girls a place in the troop and allows the Leader to know how many new girls she can add throughout year.
  • Troops may utilize funds from the troop treasury to easily re-register everyone with the money earned together all year long.
  • For families that pay for their girl to be re-registered as an individual or within her troop, we find that there are fewer financial burdens in the Spring than in the Fall (i.e. back-to-school uniforms, supplies, etc).
  • There are also exciting NEW incentives and rewards available for every troop and girl who participates in Early Bird online re-registration!

When will the Early Bird Patches be distributed?

Patches will be distributed by the Service Units in late summer.

How will I re-register?

All GSSEF Troop Leaders, with registered troops as of April 14, will receive an email invitation on April 15 with a direct link into e-Council and your Troop Roster where you can re-register girls and adults for the 2014-2015 Girl Scout year. Leaders will update any girl and/or adult information, then complete the re-registration transaction in a few simple steps. If you do not have your user ID and password, please contact Sandra Tweedy at stweedy@gssef.org.
