Need direct access to all troops on eBiz. - SUM meeting should be once a month - Council training updates - Gold Award info - Waiting for leaders’ concern to be addressed, not hearing about conclusion and leaving leader feeling unsupported

29 SU Strategies for Successful EBR
Provide a SU incentive to all leaders renewing their troop online; include one for leaders who have 100% online renewal by parents! Lead by example: Get SU team members to Early Bird register their troops between 4/1/2014 and 6/30/2014 (and by 6/1/2014 for incentives) Utilize all SU communications to promote Early Bird Online membership renewal Use Early Bird as an incentive to be allowed to participate in special SU fall events or encampments Sponsor Online Renewal Station party with a theme TINA Last’ year successful launch of On line renewal was driven by your support , enthusiasm and energy – last year we ask you to project the percentage of online registrations- 70% 80% 100% - we encourage you to the same again- Here are just a few strategies for rolling out a successful EBR at the Service unit level (Review slide) This list could easily be expanded upon at your next Service Unit Team meeting-

30 Leader Ideas Email parents an Early Bird reminder
Budget for membership fee! Give parents an incentive to renew! Have girls help parents with online renewal Share/view this video! Have a laptop at troop meetings so parents can renew on the spot! Host an end-of-year parent meeting to do this! Renewal Party as a part of the end-of-year activity! TINA As a troop leader you can : (Review slide) Remember early bird renewal provides an opportunity for girls to recommit to Girl Scouting, it allows parents and girls to better plan for other activities as they have already committed to Girl Scouts and allows for better planning at the troop, service unit and council level ! (Sheila, are there any questions?) Now I would like to turn it back over to Sheila to share about upcoming GSGLA programs and events-
