Starting soon, you will find cleaner views, more features and
functions, and enhanced search options that will make it easier for
you to find more fun for your Girl Scout!
The key to accessing the refreshed member platform, My Account.
You’ll find it after the Go-Live and there will be a unique email address.
In our current state, many parents/caregivers are sharing an email
address to access their family’s Girl Scout account. In our future
state, all parents/caregivers will need to have a unique email
address to identify them in the system.
During data migration:
- Primary caregivers in our current state will migrate to the
new environment as they appear.
- Secondary caregivers who do
not have a unique email address in our current system will migrate
with a firstname.lastname@example.org email and
will need assistance to access the household account.
How can you ensure a smoother transition for your family?
Follow the steps below to review the Girl Scout accounts for all
parents and caregivers in your household before November 8.
1. Log in to your MyGS account.
2. Review the email addresses for your household, are the
parents/caregivers in your household using the same email address? If
“YES”, complete Step 3.
3. Provide a new email address for the secondary caregiver.
Why do we need different email accounts?
Unique email addresses support new functionality in the new system
including the ability to allow household managers (primary caregivers)
to affiliate other adults to a Girl’s account e.g. parents in two
households and/or grandparents who may now directly register and pay
for Girl Scout experiences. We’d rather not share an additional email
address. It’s going to result in more Girl Scout emails and we’d like
to avoid that.
Once the new system is live, you will have the ability to edit your
preferences for receiving Girl Scout communications without Council assistance!
Please check your emails and GSCCC social media for alerts and news.
