Preparing for Annual Subscriptions

With the annual subscriptions starting from noon on 29 January 2019, now is the time for all levels to start preparing their membership records on GO. Units can begin checking their subscriptions due report on GO and make the relevant amendments to their list of girls from now. If there are any volunteers that you should/shouldn’t be paying for in your unit, please let your Commissioner know.

Please read the Preparing for Annual Subscriptions helpfile in the Help zone of GO. This should answer most of your queries regarding a unit’s membership list.

 

Helpfiles

The following helpfiles are new and available in the Help zone of GO:

E-learnings

We have received many queries about logging into GO in order to complete the Safe Space e-learnings. If you are having difficulties logging into the GO membership system, you can complete the e-learnings from the Girlguiding website directly without needing to login. At the end of the course you will need to fill in some information, such as your membership number, which will link it to your GO record.

GO access

As a reminder, the GO system is only available to parents when they first make an enquiry for their daughter to join Girlguiding. They can use the system to message the unit where they have enquired, amend personal details and transfer their daughter’s enquiry to another unit. Once their daughter has become a member, the parent’s access to GO is removed. The girl’s record must then be kept up to date by her unit’s leadership team.
