Member Essentials – 4/23/20

In honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month and Leader Day, our CEO Alison Wilcox was joined by Morgan Williams-Bryant, our Chief Impact Officer, and Girl Scouts Stella and Taylor in thanking our co-leaders and volunteers for their amazing work in building girls of courage, confidence, and character. Thank you for all that you do!

Updates About G.I.R.L. 2020 and the 55th National Council Session

GSUSA recently announced the cancellation of G.I.R.L. 2020. This decision was made with the health and safety of all members of the Girl Scout Movement at the forefront. With continuous monitoring of public health experts’ recommendations and forecasts, it became clear that Girl Scouts could not hold convention in person in October 2020 because we can’t host a large scale, in-person event and guarantee the health and safety of participants. There will be a one-time virtual session for our 55th National Council Session in October 2020. GSWNY will finalize changes for GIRL 2020 cookie program recognitions by May 1.


Please join us for a Virtual Friendship Circle in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month

We’re so thankful for all the work you do to bring the power of Girl Scouting to girls throughout Western New York! Even though we can’t see each other in person, we wanted to celebrate you through a Virtual Friendship Circle!

Renewal Update

After careful consideration, GSWNY is postponing the start of the Spring Renewal campaign, originally set to begin on May 1. We will continue to review the current conditions to determine the best start date.

While we are reviewing our renewal incentives for the updated campaign, SAGE Tuition Rewards will not be affected and will be pushed to the new renewal dates. If a member renews prior to the new Renewal Campaign start date, they will still qualify for any time-related incentives once the campaign begins. Watch for more details on updated incentives when they become available. 

Look for updated campaign dates and information in mid to late May!
