Early Bird Registration Extended to 7/18

Internet Explorer, or Firefox Internet Browsers Required to Access eBiz
The Early Bird Registration deadline has been extended to 7/18/12 due to an unexpected change in browser requirements for the eBiz system. GSCCC was notified of this change on 6/14/12, the same day it was implemented by GSUSA. eBiz now only supports Firefox and Internet Explorer. Those using other browsers are unable to use the site.

To accommodate this change, we are providing a link to download Firefox below. Additionally, we are offering personal support to users of other browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc.) 

Below are links to Firefox so you may install the browser on your computer:

Please email Tanya Carelli at tcarelli@girlscoutsccc.org for support, with your name, troop number and daytime phone number in the body of the email. Requests for support will be executed in the order they are received.

We apologize for the unexpected change and hope that the extension of the Early Bird deadline, and the personal support option will accommodate your needs. Thank you.
