First Meetings
Most Senior troops meet once a week, day or evening, or one or two hours, or every otherweek or two or three hours. You may meet in your own clubroom, in a community clubhouse,in a church or school, or at your leader’s house.Some o you whose idea it was to start a Senior Girl Scout troop should meet with theselected leader (and troop committee i already chosen) to plan the very first meeting. Careulplanning will insure your having a good time so you will look orward with enthusiasm tomeeting again. The program you plan should balance necessary inormation with un, goodellowship, a promise or the uture, and rereshments. The ollowing suggested ingredientsor a good first meeting should be varied to suit the needs o your group:1. An ice-breaking game. Make this an opportunity or getting acquainted so that eachone o you at least learns the names o everyone present and something about one other.(Twenty minutes.)2. An inspirational talk by a person who knows the history and background o Girl Scouting.(Ten minutes.)
3. A talk by the leader who tells how the meeting was planned and asks or volunteers to plannext week’s meeting. This will undoubtedly bring up the question o how oten the troopis to meet, where, when, what you want to do. A secretary or the day should be appointedto take notes on suggestions made and decisions reached. The discussion (which may bedirected by one o the original girl planners instead o the leader) should give all o yousome idea o the business to be transacted next time. (Thirty minutes.)4. Fun and rereshments ending with a good-night song and a reminder about the nextmeeting date, place, and time.Your second meeting will depend, o course, on the suggestions made at the first and the plansworked out by you and your leader. There should be some un, some serious discussion o themeaning o the Girl Scout Promise and Laws, the beginning o plans or the ceremony at whichtroop members will receive their pins and their registration cards, discussion o program activi-ties in which you are interested.You will want to plan your first our or five meetings to include many o the ollowing:1. Meeting membership requirements.2. Planning and executing the Senior membership ceremony.3. Have un together.4. Finding out about one another’s experiences, ideas, and all the other activities that filleach member’s twenty-our hour day.5. Settling details about length and requency o meetings, meeting places, mechanicso running the group, of cers, patrols, committees, and so on.6. Making plans or financing your troop. Consider budget building, agreeing on troop dues,raising extra money o necessary, handling and spending unds, keeping records. Forrecommended procedures, see Troop Financing in Dollars and Sense.7. Sampling activities suggested in this handbook.8. Visiting other Senior Girl Scouts or troops, or inviting them to your meetings.9. Trying out questionnaires and checklists to determine popularity o ideas.10. Attending any planned intertroop get-together to become amiliar with Senior GirlScouting in your town.During these first meetings you will decide what your major interest will be. You may wishto combine several o the program fields suggested in this handbook.
