All adult volunteers, except those adults serving as temporary
advisors or consultants, must be registered members of the Girl Scout
Movement and must pay the applicable membership dues on an annual
basis and meet GSUSA membership requirements.
Every participant (girl or adult) in Girl Scouting must register and
become a member of Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA). GSUSA membership
dues are valid for one year, from October 1 through September 30.
Membership dues (currently $15) are sent by GSGATL to GSUSA; no
portion of the dues stays with the council. Membership dues may not be
transferred to another member and are not refundable.
Membership MAY NOT BE DENIED based on the inability to pay the
Membership registration, registered member: one of the steps
required to become a Girl Scout is to fill out a Membership
Registration form (online or on paper) and pay GSUSA’s annual
membership dues for the year.
