Subscriptions 2016: Key dates to remember

Calling all Leaders and Commissioners – it’s time to spring clean the Go! databases and get those cheques sent off ahead of this year’s annual subscriptions deadline.

Trial invoices are available now. Final invoices will pop up on the system on 24 February 2016, so please ensure your Go! records are updated well in advance so that your invoice accurately reflects your local membership.

As a membership organisation, we use the money raised to cover the running costs of guiding in Scotland and UK-wide so we can continue to provide fun, adventure and opportunities for members.

But it’s vital the money is collected and sent off in time to avoid a delay in cascading the money down to Scotland and our Counties.

Commissioners can you please provide support and follow up with Leaders to make sure the process runs smoothly.

Subscription cheques must be received by Girlguiding’s Trading Services department by 16 March 2016 at the latest.

Here are some handy dates for your diary:

Thursday 7 January: Trial invoices are available to view and update on Go!

Monday 22 – Wednesday 24 February: Go! will be unavailable so amendments to entries must be made before this time.

Wednesday 24 February: Payment is due. Invoices should be printed and sent to Trading Services with cheque.

Wednesday 9 March: Please could all Commissioners check that cheques have been posted to Trading Services by this date. If not, please actively chase the Leaders to get payment in on time.

Saturday 12 March: Latest date to post cheques so they arrive in time.

Wednesday 16 March: Latest date for cheques to arrive at Trading Services.

Monday 4 April: The subscriptions site on Go! will be updated to show payment received and the levy allocated to Countries, Counties, Divisions and Districts.
