Please, stop referring to GSUSA as GSA!!!! You said you were employed part-time by the Girl Scouts, please refer to the organization properly. Boy Scouts is BSA, Girl Scouts are GSUSA!!!
Yes, there are many streamlining changes happening, the ease of changing locations--be it towns, councils or states will be great, the new books are wonderful, like all new items--they will take time to get used to. The merging of councils is exciting. I love the fact that there is just one official uniform component the official uniform component for the girls (jr through ambassadors) is a vest or sash with pins, adults have a tie or scarf, the Daisy & Brownies remain the same and GSUSA has made it much easier for the adults to dress in official dress uniform by going with navy blue business attaire with a tie or scarf--most buisness persons own at least one navy suit. The girls also have an official dress uniform--khaki pants and white tops--that is convenient. While working booth sales they can use the vest/sash and when doing a flag ceremony for an event (community meeting, ceremony etc) they have their kahki and white. While it is always a Great Time to be a Girl Scout, it is even more exciting now to be one!! Girl Scouts are building Tomorrow's leaders--Today. It has always excited me that
