Hello! My name is Allison Hand and I am the new Membership Specialist for Region 5. I live in Sartell with my husband and three girls.  We also have a male maltese/ shish tzu dog named Gus  to try to balance the ratio at home.
 I have spent the last year as the Service Unit Manager for Service Unit 28 as well as an active parent volunteer for the last two years with Girl Scouts. I have enjoyed seeing just how Girl Scouts has encouraged my daughter to overcome her fears and adopt an “I can” attitude. In my free time, I enjoy cooking (especially baking), reading and spending  time with my girls.  I look forward to recruiting more members and meeting all of our wonderful volunteers that make Girl Scouts who we are!  Please feel free to contact me about Jump Start, Recruitment, or any other items!
I can be reached at: (320) 247-4567 or by e-mail:

Volunteer Updates

By Allison Hand

The membership department has a cool tool that is available to our Service Unit volunteers!  The prize wheel is an inviting way to bring girls to your table at open houses and other events!  Please contact Allison at (320) 247-4567 or if you would like to use the prize wheel at your next event!

The Product Sales staff recently road tripped to Interbake Foods (ABC Bakers) in North Sioux City, SD to continue planning our next Cookie Sale Program. While there, we were able to see how our cookies are made.  Interbake has 500 employees, and runs three shifts, six days a week.  One third of what they make there is Girl Scout cookies. It’s no wonder we could smell Thin Mints when we walked in the building!

Summer is when we do most of our planning for the upcoming year for both the Fall and Cookie Sale programs. At this time we are beginning to contact our past Community Product Sales Managers (CPSM) and Cupboard Managers to see if they are willing to assist us this coming year with either the Fall or Cookie Sales or both.  Thank you to all who have worked with us in the past – we hope you will continue to help girls with their upcoming product sales programs! So far we know of several openings around the council for these volunteer positions.  If this is something you are interested in, please contact your Product Sales and Finance
Specialist for more information.  

Fall Product Sale Program dates have been set and there are some new changes to the program which we think will be helpful to troops.

The Membership Department needs your help!  We need to meet our goal!  If you have yet to register for the new Girl Scout year, we ask that you be “on time” and renew your membership before October 1, 2014, the official start of the 2014-15 Girl Scout year.

2,063 girls and 627 adults participated in the Spring Jump Start Renewal Campaign.  Girls participating earned their 2014-15 Jump
Start patch for renewing their membership early by June 15. A total of 177 Troop Leaders earned a Girl Scout shop gift certificate for a free Girl Scout polo shirt for registering their troop and submitting their updated troop roster. Interested to see how your Service Unit did?  Check out your numbers here!
