  Recruitment and Registration Resources

All recruitment resources, as well as branding information, official logos, fonts, and flyers can be found on the Volunteer Marketing Resources page. Service Units also can use the Membership Recruitment Resource Guide to plan recruiting in their service units.

Our Renewal page has lots of information to assist current members with re-registration, including step-by-step instructions.

Another great recruitment or retention resource for Girl Scout members is our Guide for Individually Registered Girl Scouts, which showcases the many opportunities available for Girl Scouts who choose to participate as individually registered members.

Other Service Unit Team Member Positions

Here are position descriptions for several other positions commonly held in Service Units. These positions will fall under the "Service Unit Team Member" volunteer job role in Volunteer Systems:

 

  Service Unit Dashboards

Service Unit leaders, including Service Unit Directors (SUDs), Service Unit Registrars (SURs), Service Unit Treasurers (SUTs), and Service Unit Leads can access dashboards periodically to assist in the management of the service unit.

General information on accessing service unit dashboards

How is this report accessed?
Every volunteer holding the volunteer campaign role of SUD, SUR, SUT, and SU Lead in Volunteer Systems will be able to access dashboards through "Looker," GSUSA's data center, with their own username and password.

More information about Looker:
Looker is a web-based application, users can be on Macs or PCs, and don't have to have Microsoft Excel in order to view their dashboards.

Looker employs much more data visualization, enabling users to "see" the data in tables and graphs. Data is moved from Volunteer Systems each night into Looker, so reports contain the latest information.

Access to the Looker reports is automatically granted by being listed as a SUD, SUR, SUT, or SU Lead in volunteer systems. Removing access to the Looker reports will also be an automatic process when someone steps down from their role as SUD, SUR, SUT, or SU Lead.

Dashboards available in Looker include the Full Roster, Membership Analysis, New in the Last Two Weeks, Troop Details, and the gsLearn summary. 

If you require assistance, please contact Customer Care

Check out the Looker Admin Guide for more information on Looker reports available for Service Unit volunteers and in gsLearn, the 578 Service Unit Suite of Tools.
