Girl Scouts of South Carolina - Alumnae Identification and Reconnection Campaign
2/27/2012

Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Alumnae Identification and Reconnection Campaign

Our statewide, year-long alumnae identification campaign was launched on February 23, 2012, in conjunction with our Year of the Girl Launch at the State House.

We are asking our girl and adult members, as well as alumnae, to help us collect contact information from at least 30,000 Girl Scout alums in our state.    

The best way to get them signed up is to send them to the Girl Scout Alumnae Association website at http://alumnae.girlscouts.org

Urge our alums to proudly display their “once a girl scout, always a girl scout” stickers on their cars (bumper or window) for the next year.  Information and instructions are printed on the sticker’s backing sheet.

Who’s an Alum?  Whatever your Girl Scout role may have been—Brownie, Junior, Cadette, troop leader, camp volunteer, staff member, or dozens of others—you’re part of a 50-million-strong network of Girl Scout alumnae.

How Can You Help?

Here are some ideas of how you can identify and reconnect with Girl Scout Alums:

·       Have some stickers and paper sign-up forms at your Girl Scout Cookie Booth. 

·       If your place of worship is recognizing Girl Scout Sunday/Sabbath, have some stickers and paper sign-up forms there.

·       If your troop or service unit is planning an Alumnae Tea, or a Girl Scout History Exhibit, have some stickers and paper sign-up forms there.

·       Ask the girls in your troop if they would like to challenge themselves to find one or two alumni during a particular week or month – Girl Scout Week is an ideal time!  

 

As you get to know some former Girl Scouts, you will find they are great people.  Some of them may be a perfect addition for something your troop would like to do/experience/learn about/visit.  Invite them to get involved.  If their interests are not well suited to what your troop is interested in, help them connect with another troop or someone at the service unit or council level.

Once they join the Girl Scout Alumnae Association, and select our council – South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands -- they will begin to receive occasional communications from our Girl Scout Council.

Details:

The “Sign Up” forms are for those who are not web-oriented and for settings where collecting the information on-site makes more sense.  All completed paper “Sign Up” forms should be turned into our Girl Scout Service Center, and they will be forwarded to Marie Harrison, at the Columbia Girl Scout Service Center, for entry.

The number of “once a girl scout, always a girl scout” stickers that are distributed and displayed proudly will be used to roughly count the number of alums who have been identified this year.

Stickers and Sign Up forms are available at each Girl Scout Service Center for those individuals and troops who have the occasion or means for identifying alumnae in the coming months.
