Member Care
With the start of the cookies sale and the new Girl Scout year around the corner, GSCM is working through a high volume of cases assisting our members and volunteers. Your continued patience is greatly appreciated. Please remember, submitting multiple emails/cases and voicemails about the same inquiry will create an unintended backlog, extending our response time.
