Community Leadership Team (CLT) Volunteers
CLTs direct and coordinate the work of the Community Service Team to support functions of the Community.

CFS and Community Treasurers The Dog-Days of Summer are here but so are your Financial Management Coordinators (FMC). The busy annual reporting time is behind us all and we thank you for the work you do to safe guard the funds of all our girls. Your FMC team is here to support your efforts and assist where needed. Below are some gentle reminders. Community Financial Specialists – Have you completed reviewing all the F-31 Troop/Group Annual Financial Reports for your Community? Have you notified the FMC (Financial Management Coordinators) of any concerns or provided a listing of troops that did NOT submit reports? Do you have troops that still have not reported their F-31. Although the reporting deadline has past and the VTK Finance Tab is locked, we are still looking for reports (manual) to come in. Please encourage any delinquent Troop Treasurers to get their reports in as soon as possible. They can be emailed to TroopFinances@SJGS.org with the Troop number in the Subject Line formatted as “Troopxxxxx” with the actual troop number replacing the xx. Community Treasurers – You should already have submitted your Annual Financial Report (F-450) which was due May 31st. Late Annual Reports can still be submitted to communityfinances@SJGS.org. Budgets (also using F-450) for FY2020 are due August 1st. Having your completed Annual Report will aid greatly in gathering data you will need to compile your Budget for next year. Community Leadership Team – If you do not currently have Finance volunteers (CFS or CT) would you be interested in having one of the FMC’s attend a Community meeting to discuss why finance is important or to provide Facilitators for Finance related trainings? You can email one of the FMCs: Angela Martin-Worthington at ammworthington@hotmail.com or Katie Berend at KTBerend@yahoo.com.

Community Leadership Team (CLT) Volunteers

CLTs direct and coordinate the work of the Community Service Team

The Community Leadership Team (CLT) group is a place for CLTs to find and share information. 

A CLT works in partnership with other members of the leadership team, directs the work of the Community Service Team and coordinates the work of the Girl Scout Community, promotes awareness and growth of Girl Scouting within specific geographic boundaries; embraces the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) and ensures that the GSLE is incorporated in Community ways of work.

Communities have the primary purpose of recruiting and retaining girls and adults in troops. The Community Service Team, including CLTs, will support the adults working with girls in troops with mentoring, product sales support, communication, networking and meeting strategies. Girls enjoy events planned and implemented by their Community. 

Although CLTs have many staff members from different GSSJC departments who help them to support their Communities, they work particularly closely with their Volunteer Experience Manager (VEM) and their Community Engagement Manager (CEM) who provide staff support and advice in assigned functions for membership development and implementation of direct services to girls and adults.
