Ideally, the troop should spend earned money each year to ensure that the girls who earned it benefit from it. But flexible guidelines are needed since every situation is different. Discussions and decisions should involve the troop leaders and Community Treasurer or Community Administrator not directly associated with the troop involved.
Girls Changing Groups
If one or more girls move from one group to another group within the council, their original group account stays intact and no funds are transferred. When girls are placed/accepted into an existing group, they participate in the activities planned by that group and work within the constraints of that group’s treasury.
If two groups merge, the funds from both groups are combined into one account.
Multi-age groups with girls bridging to a new level and thus into a new group may transfer a proportionate amount of the former group funds to the new group. The former group is not considered disbanded.
If the entire group (ALL girls and families) mutually decide to split or divide, it is appropriate for the group to decide to split the funds of the existing troop/group proportionally. However, if a small group decides to split off to form a new group, they do so with the understanding that they have no claim to their “share” of the funds unless the group decides together to split the funds in this way.
