Current Girl Scout members must renew their membership for the 2012-13 year through eBiz by September 30, 2012. You must be registered for the 2012-13 Girl Scout year to register for any programs taking place after September 30.
|Please note: Girl Scout memberships not renewed by September 30, 2012 will expire and will automatically drop off their troop roster. Those members will then need to renew individually, and cannot be renewed by their troop leader.

Is a separate logon required for each person?
Yes. Each individual must have a unique user name and password to access her/his account, renew a membership, and make a donation. The logon is linked to an individual's customer account. Only troop leaders with a 01 position code can see multiple members -- troop members -- through online troop management. Therefore, a parent of two Girl Scouts needs to have two separate logons to renew each daughter's membership and make a donation.
What features are available to me on my eBiz account?
- Update demographic and contact information as needed.
- Make a contribution to GSGLA.
- Renew membership.
- Print a membership card.
Is a parent/guardian signature required for online membership renewal?
No. The parent/guardian's online purchase of a Girl Scout membership replaces the need for a signature.
What happens if a girl wants to renew her membership but is transferring to another troop?
Transferring to another troop is a two-step process:
- A girl's parent/guardian renews girl's membership online with the existing troop.
- The current or new troop leader initiates a troop transfer using the Troop Change Form. Transfers are made by council staff.
Is online membership registration available in Spanish?
Not at this time. Paper forms must be used to register in Spanish:
