NOTE: Permission slips will be sent with the confirmation; however, the activity permission slip found on the GSNI website may be used. Council events are conducted by a variety of sources— outside resources, volunteers, and/or council staff. In order to ensure girl/adult ratios are met, we ask the following: •• If registering as an individual, check the event description to determine if adult chaperones are required to accompany girl participants.

•• If registering as a troop/group (even if leaders ask parents to register the girls individually), proper girl/adult ratio must be met.

•• Due to space limitations, we ask that troops meet but do not exceed girl/adult ratios.

In all cases, each girl participant must turn in a completed permission slip signed by their parent/guardian. Check the individual event description to determine if adult chaperones are required to pay. Adult chaperones are required to register regardless of fee. To determine the proper girl/adult ratio, see Volunteer Essentials, Chapter 4: Safety Wise. Volunteer Essentials is available on the GSNI website. Troop registrations will keep all your girls together—all will get in or not get in. If you don’t want any girls left out, troop registration is recommended. Registrations and payment may be: •• Completed online at www.girlscoutsni.org unless otherwise noted . •• Mailed to the Elgin Service Center.

•• Hand delivered to any of GSNI’s service centers during regular business hours. (GSNI is not responsible for forms dropped off when a center is closed.) •• Registrations must be received by the deadline date.

EVENT CANCELATIONS: If an event does not meet the minimum registration as of the deadline date, GSNI reserves the right to cancel the event. Notice will be made by by email and/or phone. PAYMENT: Payment in full MUST be submitted with the registration. Cash, check, money order, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and/or “Cookie Dough/S’more Dough” are accepted. Online registration requires credit card payment. “Cookie Dough/S’more Dough” cannot be used with online payment. “Cookie Dough/S’more Dough” must be received prior to the expiration date listed on the coupon. CONFIRMATION: A registration confirmation will be emailed to all participants shortly after the closing date of registration. If you have not received a confirmation five (5) days prior to the event, please call the girl leadership assistant at Ext. 7132. FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: A limited amount of financial assistance is available. Girl participants may request up to $15 twice per membership year for program event financial assistance. Requests are considered by the membership year the event is being held, not date submitted. If requesting financial assistance for an event, submit a completed financial assistance request WITH the event registration form. The financial assistance form may be found on the GSNI website or contact the girl leadership assistant at Ext. 7132. REFUND PROCEDURE: •• A full refund of the fee (including deposit) is made ONLY if a participant can’t be placed in the event of her choice or if it is necessary for GSNI to cancel an event opportunity.

•• A partial refund, cost of the event minus a $5 per person processing fee or 1/2 the event fee for events costing less than $10, will be given if requested in writing prior to the event deadline. When requesting a refund, include the following information in an email or letter to the girl leadership assistant at ehall@girlscoutsni.org: name and address of participant, name and date of event, and reason for request.

NOTE: Registrations are not accepted over the phone and no spots can be held without a paid registration.

•• No refunds will be given after the event registration deadline.

However you choose to register, you must not register prior to the beginning registration date (May 1, 2014).

If a Girl Scout membership registration fee was paid, it is non-refundable.

Registrations postmarked, dropped off, or submitted online prior to the beginning registration date will receive a two-day penalty. (Held for two days after registration opens.) Registrations received after the close of registration will be accepted ONLY at the discretion of the director of girl leadership or her designee. Please CALL the girl leadership assistant at Ext. 7132 for possible availability after the registration deadline has passed.

CHAPERONES: Adults accompanying participants may be responsible for: •• Assisting with event activities as requested by event facilitator. •• Administering any necessary disciplinary actions when behavior is disruptive. If behavior continues to disrupt, the workshop facilitator may alert the chaperones to have them handle the situation appropriately.
