My Troop (or Community) has previously just coordinated with the others in our area.
Troops may NOT participate in cookie booths that are not listed in eBudde. It is GSUSA policy that GSTF provide this information on all public cookie booths where our troops are selling cookies. The purpose of this requirement is two-fold: it substantiates this as a GSTF-sanctioned activity and offers the benefit of ensuring coverage under GSTF insurance, as well as providing valuable data to end consumers to find your areas cookie booths. Unfortunately, past informal agreements between troops put the community level adults, troop leaders and booth adult volunteers at substantial risk and personal liability for problems or accidents at booths.
To ensure the safety of girls and adults, we must adhere to GSUSA policy going forward. We deeply regret these important policies were not enforced in the past and put girls and volunteers risk.
