Volunteers Make the Future!

Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee has always appreciated the value and support our leaders bring to our organization. We are excited to honor our volunteers in the following ways:

  • GSMIDTN will pay the GSUSA registration fees for one 01 and 02 for every troop.
  • GSMIDTN will pay for one CPR/First Aid certification and Outdoor Skills for each troop.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should my troop consider renewal?

    Current memberships (except Lifetime Members*) expire September 30, 2024. Renewing shows the troop is continuing and ready for the next year of adventures. Make sure volunteers and girls have renewed! The earlier the commitment, the easier it is to keep things together.

    *Lifetime Members do have a membership ready for 2024, but their troop does not. Lifetime members who are volunteers still need to renew their troop registration.

  • Can I renew my Girl Scout's membership individually on CouncilAlignMENT?

    Technically yes, but we encourage troops to use Early Bird Renewal as an opportunity to decide about returning as a group. 

  • What is Early Bird Renewal?

    Early Bird Renewal is an opportunity for troops to renew their membership for the next Girl Scout year (October 2024-September 2025).

    Girl Scouts who register from April 3-June 5 will receive extra perks, plus a registration discount.

  • How do the incentives work?

    See the chart at the top of the page for incentives and their corresponding deadlines!

    • What is considered Troop 100% Renewal?
      To be eligible for these rewards, a troop must have 100% membership renewal. E.g., if a troop had 12 members during the 2024 Girl Scout year, 12 girls must sign up for the 2025 Girl Scout year.

      • Renewal percentages will be based on a comparison to the number of paid girl registrations for the 2024 Girl Scout year as of April 2, 2024.
    • How will troop leaders know how many girls are in their troops?
      Current troop rosters are available for viewing in CouncilAlignMENT under a troop leader’s “Troop Management” box.
    • As a troop leader, what should I do with the “inactive” girls on my roster? Will they affect my renewal numbers?
      Your renewal goal is based on girls registered as of 11:59 p.m. April 2, 2024. Inactive girls should be submitted to your Regional Executive in March to remove them from your roster.
    • What if girls are not coming back next year?
      Troop volunteers and/or girls in the troop will need to recruit new girls to join the troop and “replace” the girl(s) not returning. Girls not returning due to graduation/aging out of the girl program are not required to have a replacement within the troop. Please verify these members with your Regional Executive.
    • It feels like I’m just being penalized because I have girls not returning.
      Our intent is to be inclusive and help expand Girl Scout membership in Middle Tennessee! We understand 100% renewal is a stretch goal, and the incentives we are offering reflect that. We hope that by are extending an invitation to a new girl, they would help enhance your troop and make for the best Girl Scout experience.
