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 Seller Registration
Before the season, you should take our online Snacks & Magazines training. Program materials will be sent directly to troop leaders and arrive in early September. In the meantime, familiarize yourself with the Service Unit Fall Product Manager (SUFPM) Resources.
September: Before the Season Preparations
Before the season begins, encourage all your troop fall product managers to complete the online training. Confirm that participating troops have received their materials.
On Go Day (September 25), girls can begin taking orders with their snack order card and participate in online snacks and magazine orders.
October: Manage 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.
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.
