Badge Resources for Leaders

There are lots of new badges for Guides to earn in 2020. Explore new badges below:

Centralised Fees

Please find important information on how Centralised Fees affect membership below:

New members – With the introduction of Centralised Fees, there have a been a few changes for new members joining Girl Guides Victoria. Find a detailed guide here.

Transferring girls between Units – Please transfer girls at the end of each term, rather than at the start of the term. This way, girls will be charged and pay the correct Unit fees.

Reminder – Membership renewals are emailed three weeks prior to the expiry date: the Sunday before the last week of the school term.

Returning to Guides after a break – Please ask parents to contact the GGV office so that we can reactivate the Guides’ original profile, rather than create a new profile. This helps keep our database clean and makes it easier to calculate their time at Guides.
