As a troop fall product manager, you facilitate Snacks & Magazines, our fall product program, within a troop. By helping your troop have a successful sale, 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
Be sure to work with your troop leader to verify all girls in your troop are registered for Snacks & Magazines. To get girls excited about the sale, you can even host a rally!
September: Before the Sale Preparations
To prepare for the Snacks & Magazines sale, you will need to complete the ACH Elect Debit Authorization Form.
October: Manage Your Troop During the Sale
On Go-Day (October 1), girls can begin taking in-person and online orders. You will support your troop by ensuring all girls are following sales dates and helping girls set up their online account through QSP—the system for managing Snacks & Magazine online sales. Throughout the sale, you will also regularly deposit any money collected from sales into your troop’s bank account.
October–November: Wrap-Up After the Sale
After the sale ends, you will use Nut-E 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 sale, complete the Collection Problem Report.
