As a service unit fall product manager (SUFPM), you facilitate Snacks & Magazines, our fall product program, within your service unit. By helping the girls in your service unit have a successful season, they’ll earn start-up funds for the Girl Scout year and develop life skills such as goal-setting, decision-making, teamwork, people skills, and business ethics!

Your Year at a Glance
Upon Registration: Role On-boarding
Once you register as a service unit fall product manager, we have an online service unit orientation to help you understand your role. Then, each service unit volunteer must complete the position agreement every year, which includes a full position description.
September: Training and Troop Registration
Before the season, you should take our online Snacks & Magazines training. Program materials will be sent directly to service units in late August. In the meantime, familiarize yourself with the Service Unit Fall Product Manager (SUFPM) Resources.
You’ll receive an email invitation to register your M2OS account (gsnutsandmags.com/gsrv) before Go Day. Set up your account, then verify all troops are listed in the system. If a troop is missing, contact us.
September: Before the Season Preparations
Before the season begins, encourage all your troop fall product managers to complete the online training. Distribute sales materials to troops.
On Go Day (September 22), girls can begin taking orders with their snack order card and participate in online snacks and magazine orders.
October: Support Your Troop During the Season
You will support participating troops by ensuring they are following program dates, adhering to banking procedures, and maintaining their M2OS accounts. Plus, you’ll ensure the delivery address for the snack orders and girl rewards is entered in M2OS before the end of the sale.
October–December: Wrap-Up After the Season
After the fall product program season ends, the snacks and rewards will be delivered to you, which you will count to ensure snack and reward inventory is correct, and then distribute to troop fall product managers. You will report any discrepancies to Girl Scouts River Valleys immediately.
You will also oversee the banking closeout process for all participating troops. This includes ensuring troop fall product managers have deposited all sale money into their troop bank accounts. If troops encountered any financial issues throughout the season, be sure they complete the Finance/Inventory Issue Form.
