Starting August 9, 2013, GSUSA will be updating their online membership and program registration system (currently called, "E-biz"). In addition to parents using this system to renew membership or to sign up for programs for themselves and their daughter(s), the "Troop Management" part of this system has been used by Troop Leaders to purchase memberships/programs and manage communications with their members.
As part of this upgrade of the online registration system to a new family-based registration system, the site will be down from 5:00 PM EDT on Friday, August 9, 2013 until 8:00 AM EDT on Tuesday, August 13, 2013. Once the system comes back online on August 13th, the registration information for all individual and troop accounts will be retained. However, the user name and password that you have used in the past to access your account will be deactivated.
Therefore, beginning on August 13, 2013, all adults will be required to reactivate their account (one time only!) with the registration system in order to use Troop Management, renew membership, or register for council programs.
The reactivation process is very easy. You will be asked a few questions (such as name, email address, and date of birth) so that the system can identify you and allow you to access your registration account. If you choose, you can register on the new system using the same user name and password that you used in the past. We hope that you will be very happy with the new family registration system which will allow you to manage the membership and program registration for all of your family members, as well as the troops which you lead.
