With the first come first serve registration policy, returning Girls can be pushed out of their units by new girls in a 2-3 year program. This separates them from their friends and makes it hard to complete the program. Registration deadlines are unreasonable, and the procedure is flawed. Also, there are no exceptions or accommodations that can be made in specific family situations, and as the leader of a Guiding group there is no way to help these girls.
Our Petition Statment it:
“We, the undersigned members and friends of Girl Guides of Canada, petition the Girl Guides of Canada to revise their On-line Registration System.
We feel the current On-line Registration System for the 2012-13 Guiding year does not allow leaders to have a sufficient voice in the registration process when it comes to determining numbers within their unit.
Returning members have not been given adequate time to register and in some cases, returning members have lost the opportunity to return to their home unit as it was deemed full.
We request that leaders have more input into their unit roster numbers, especially to help the registration process of returning members so that leaders can properly manage their unit size.”
