Update 31 July, 2020
Guide Units are now able to meet face-to-face again, venue and circumstances permitting. Unit Leaders have been advised of Covid safety requirements and should be implementing physical distancing and sanitation procedures during activities. Some State events are now being planned - please check the What's On page.
Camps and sleepovers will be permitted in Stage 5 and all Camp Leaders are required to include Covid Safety in their Risk Management Plans for camp. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
What is happening with membership fees?
We are a non-profit, member-based organisation. Without our members, Girl Guides does not exist! So we thank you, our members, for sticking with us during the COVID-19 pandemic and keeping Girl Guiding alive in WA.
All over WA, we've seen the Girl Guide spirit flourishing, whether it has been in the online meetings, the rainbow chalk-drawings, the drive-by Easter egg drops or the challenges girls have undertaken to complete a badge at home. In recognition of this awe-inspiring sense of community, the Board has made the decision to extend all members' annual membership by four months. There is no need for you to do anything. Your membership has automatically been extended for four months. If you've already received an invoice, you will soon receive a notice advising of a four month extension on payment due date.
This extension has been issued to show you how much we value your membership and in recognition that, for many, this is a time of financial strain.
We’ll be keeping you up to date via email, so please make sure we have your best contact details by logging into the database to update your profile. We hope you will also follow us on social media (search for Girl Guides WA).
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Yours in guiding,
Katrina Lane, State Commissioner
And the Girl Guides WA Board
