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 start-up fee.

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.
