Last week on Wednesday, I sent an e-mail to the person the Girl Scouts website told me to so that I could get the information in what would be needed to get my 5yo involved and what would be expected of me through the year. I received an automatic reply saying she was out of the office until April 11th. Called the office and questioned this since it was June and was told she was out of the office, probably didn't update her auto reply e-mail, and would be in the office the next day.
On Monday morning I receive an e-mail from this GS woman saying that she would like to talk to me and to e-mail her my number. I didn't get home until later in the evening, so around 6-7pm, I sent her my phone number.
On Wednesday evening I received an e-mail from this GS woman saying she's out of the office for the rest of the week and will call me on Monday.
I kind of feel I'm getting the run-around. All I want is information that I can't find online and basically, from what I understand, she will just give me the contact information of the Scout Leader (or whatever she is called) for the troop DD would be with.
Is this normal? Why is this so difficult?
I'm sorry you are getting the run around from the council office. Personally, I think if you speak to a volunteer you will get much better information (I say that because I am a volunteer). Ask one of the local leaders for the number of the Service Unit Manager (she's a volunteer too). She is over all of the troops in your area and will be able to get you in contact with a leader for your daughter or information on being a leader if you would like to do that. If you have any questions or need help getting in touch with a local volunteer, message me and I will see what I can find out for you. (c:
