Question & Answer follow-up from training meeting.
#1 – Troop Cookie Managers should check the archived reports to find last year’s sales history (go to the Reports tab, then Archived). If the information isn’t there, let us know!#2 – Cookie Rookie kits including 1st year patches are only sent to brand new troops. Any returning troops that have added new girls (new cookie sellers!) this year can purchase “My First Cookie Sale” patches from one of our Girl Scout shops.
#3 – Troops do need to complete an online ACH authorization form in addition to entering their bank account information in Smart Cookies. (If they did it already for the 2017 Snacks & Magazines sale, they don’t need to again.) Here’s a link to the form: https://volunteers.
Cookie ACH Information
Is your troop is interested in participating in the Automated Clearing House (ACH) Program with Girl Scout Council? This program allows the Girl Scout Council to remove the alloted funds from your troop account two times during the cookie selling season. This is a great way to alleviate some of the hassle of depositing funds into the Girl Scout Council account, not knowing how much money to put in and/or depositing too much money. It is easy! Just email the following information to: email@example.com 1. Your Troop Number 2. Name of the Troop Cookie Manager or Troop Leader if there isn’t a Troop Cookie Manager 3. Email of Troop Cookie Manager or Troop Leader 4. The name of the Service Unit: Bloomington 9 Mile Service Unit
