Cookie Training
For Troops

We offer two types of training for Troop Cookie Managers. Pick one based on your experience level:


COOKIE ROOKIE

This is a 90-120 minute review of the full Girl Scout Cookie Program. Designed for those who are brand-new or second year Troop Cookie Managers (TCMs), Cookie Rookie will dive into the jargon and details of the program, allow time for examples and questions and discuss best practices.

Our intent is to create a welcoming atmosphere, where TCMs can feel comfortable learning, and asking questions, with their peers. TCMs are encouraged to bring their smart phones and/or laptops.

New Troop Leaders are welcome, and encouraged, to attend Cookie Rookie with their TCM. Cookie Program Marketing Materials will be available for purchase at the end of the session.

If you are a veteran TCM, please sign up for Cookie Refresher.

COOKIE REFRESHER

This is a 45-60 minute, high-level overview of the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program for veteran (third year +) Troop Cookie Managers. During this training we will review our new banking process, dates and specifics on those things that change yearly. Time will be allowed for questions and best practices.

Our intent is to provide veteran TCMs with key info on changes for 2020, answer any questions and give you the opportunity to purchase Cookie Program Marketing Materials.

If you are a first or second year TCM, please sign up for Cookie Rookie.

Product Program Banking

Troops participating in the Product Programs (Candy, Nuts + Magazines and Cookies) are asked to deposit ALL monies (cash + checks) collected in to their troop account.

Monies for each program will be pulled/debited from the troop account as follows:

  • Fall Product Program: October 28, 2019. All funds to cover your Candy, Nuts & Magazines orders should be deposited at this time.
  • Cookies: 1st pull March 2, 2020.  Amount equal to $1 for every package the troop has. 2nd and final pull March 16, 2020. The remaining balance due, will occur. All funds should be deposited and available in time for the second and final pull.

For troops who bank with Bank of America, this pull/debit process is automatic and no further action is required.

For troops who bank outside of Bank of America, you are required to complete two steps due October 1 if participating in both Product Programs and January 1 if participating in the Cookie Program only:

Account Reporting Form

ACH Authorization Form

BOUNCED/RETURNED CHECKS: 
If during either of our Product Programs your troop encounters a bounced check from a customer, complete the Bounced/Returned Check Reimbursement Form to access support.

FUNDS NOT YET AVAILABLE IN TROOP ACCOUNT?
If your troop account doesn’t have the balance owed as outlined above, submit a form (coming soon!) no later than the Thursday prior to the pull date. Forms received after this date may not be processed.

Cookiegrams

Cookiegrams are emails that remind you about next steps, provide reminders and direction. We'll link all Cookiegrams here within 24 hours after they're sent.

Cookie College for Daisies

Cookie Season is almost here! Come join us for some fun and earn two of your financial literacy leaves with hands-on activities. This is the perfect way to kick off your Girl Scout Daisies Cookie Season and support them as they earn and then place two of their important leaves on the front of their tunic or vest. In addition to two leaves, Daisies will enjoy a snack, build some new friendships, learn a new skill or two and take home some fun swag to help them remember the day and celebrate the start of the Cookie Season.

We are offering a two-hour morning and afternoon session. Choose the one that matches with the two leaves being earned and/or your schedule.

When: Saturday, November 9, 2019
Where: Tomahawk Creek Community Center - Overland Park, Kansas
Cost: $10 per Girl Scout Daisy
Register: 
10:00 am – 12:00 pm | Count It Up & Money Counts Leaves
1:00 – 3:00 pm | Talk it Up & Making Choices Leaves

Troops and individual Daisies are welcome. Adult caregivers / troop leaders must accompany.
