As a troop fall product manager, you facilitate Snacks & Magazines, our fall product program, within a troop. By helping your troop 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, money management, people skills, and business ethics!

Your Year at a Glance
Upon Registration: Role On-boarding
Once you register as a troop fall product manager, we have an optional troop orientation to help you get familiar with Girl Scouts River Valleys and your troop’s program level.
September: Training and Seller Registration
Before the sale, it is recommended that you take our online Snacks & Magazines training. You should also read and understand the Troop Fall Product Manager Resources page and connect with your service unit team to get materials for your troop.
Be sure to visit gsnutsandmags.com/gsrv to register your M2OS account and work with your troop leader to verify all girls in your troop are listed in the system. If someone is missing, it is probably because she is not registered for the 2019-2020 Girl Scout program year. To get girls excited about the sale, you can even host a rally!
September-October: Manage Your Troop During the Season
Support your girls! All Girl Scout programs are girl-led, and we are here to cheer them on. On Go-Day (September 28), girls can begin taking in-person and online orders. You will support your troop by ensuring all girls are following program dates and helping girls set up their online account through M2OS—the system for managing Snacks & Magazine online sales.
Throughout the fall product program season, you will also regularly deposit any money collected from sales into your troop’s bank account.
October–November: Wrap-Up After the Season
After the fall product program season ends, you will use M2OS to enter all in-person snack orders and order girl rewards. Snacks and rewards will be shipped to your service unit’s fall product manager who will reach out to you with a pick-up time and location. You should verify all counts of the snacks and rewards when you pick them up. You will then need to distribute the snacks and rewards to girls.
Make your final deposit of all money collected into your troop’s bank account. If there were any issues with inventory or money during the season, complete the Finance/Inventory Issue Form (Formerly known as Collection Problem Report).
