Hints and Tips
With a number of Districts celebrating anniversary milestones, it is important to record details as things happen. Here are some ideas on how to update and maintain District records.
- Use an A-Z expanding file. Allocate a year for each slot, it's easy to slip annual reports, award programs, newspaper clippings etc into the appropriate year.
- Lots of photos to organise? A Support Group meeting could involve trying to name all the people in the photos and the when and where details. Record the results. Select a good range of photos to be scanned for a digital copy.
Membership Lists and Fees
Local Support Group membership lists need to be kept up to date. This is vital should a situation arise where a vote is required on an important decision.
One of the laws incorporated in our promise is that of being friendly. The strongest Support Groups are those where friendship among members is strong. As “locals” reach out to newcomers to your area – you never know there could be a Guide, a Leader, a Support Group member there just waiting to be asked. Support Group is not just a meeting, it is working together in the Guiding Spirit to benefit girls and women in your town, our state, our country.
Reward Your Leaders
While Leaders do not look for rewards, be aware of the time they give and surprise them somehow. Maybe nominate them for a Good Service Award.
