Dear Volunteers,

    As we head into the 2018 – 2019 Girl Scout Year we can’t thank you, our Girl
    Scout volunteers enough for your time, talents and true dedication that you put
    into this organization.

    This year brings some new updates and changes to our organization. We are in
    our first full year of use for our new software system CouncilAlignMENT, a single
    source, single entry system that has been designed by this Girl Scout Council
    to fulfill the needs of volunteers, parents, and staff who want to better serve
    Girl Scouts in our community. This software program speaks the Girl Scout
    language and we believe will provide you with a meaningful experience. Features
    include Troop Meeting calendars, Outdoor Adventure requests, and the ability to
    manage everything on one website instead of many.

    We also continue to offer new programming in the areas of STEAM, Outdoors,
    Life Skills and entrepreneurship. While continuing to explore partnerships
    exclusive to our area like games with the Nashville Soccer Club. We are
    highlighting important National events in a friendly manner with programs
    like “Election Day the Equine Way”. Our council is proud to offer activities and
    events that support the troop programs with travel, journey and badge based
    programming.

    I’m excited to work with you as we continue to promote the significant
    impact of Girl Scout membership, is that girls can do anything — both locally
    and nationally. With the advent of a girl’s ability to independently conduct
    community service projects and the advent of services and agencies to serve
    the interests of girls, there is a great deal of competition to get a girl’s attention.
    What’s wonderful about the Girl Scouts is that we are broad enough that we can
    meet a girl’s interests and have an established organizational brand to help her
    achieve her goals.

    Agenia Clark
    President/CEO

Program Registration
Information
Explore the many adventures Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee has to offer! Council Sponsored Programs are planned and facilitated by your
Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee program team specifically for members of Girls Scouts. Tag-alongs (non-members) are invited to some
programs, but other arrangements should be made during most Council Sponsored Programs. Programs are scheduled on a particular date
and for specific grade levels.

Unless otherwise stated registration is taken through CouncilAlignMENT at        gsmidtn.org/councilalignment

This year we have two new icons for our programs! When you see           it’s a Girl Scout Friends and Family Event, everyone register!
When you see       it means Adult Ratios, we may limit adult participation to only those needed for Safety Activity Checkpoints.

You will need to login or create an account in CouncilAlignMENT to view all activities offered through Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee. By
creating an account, you are not required to register as a Girl Scout. CouncilAlignMENT is for troop leaders, parents, volunteers and Girl
Scout Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors (with parent permission).

Please set NoReply@councilalignment.com as a “safe sender” to avoid accidental delivery to junk or spam folders.

To see the status of the activity, please refer to the color key at the top of the calendar page.

Registration for each program closes three weeks prior to an event. Please note, popular programs tend to fill prior to the
three week registration deadline. Unless otherwise stated, Council Sponsored Programs do not provide food and require adults
to attend with Girl Scouts. Council Sponsored Programs are designed for the girl and grade level indicated. Please make other
arrangements for “tag-alongs.”

STEP 3: Payment
Once you have registered and the program has met its minimum, CouncilAlignMENT will send you an invoice via email and
populate in your online shopping cart. All balances are due 15 days prior to the activity. Unpaid balances must be resolved before
you are allowed to register for another activity.

STEP 4: Before Your Program
Communications will go out at least one week prior to the event with all information you will need. Confirmation letters include:
directions, packing list, overview of the event, forms to complete and more. If your troop’s registration was received after the
event was filled, you will be placed on a waiting list and will receive notification if space becomes available.
