What happens if a lapsed member wants to register as an extended-year member? If a former member’s membership has lapsed, meaning that they were not a member in the current or previous membership year, but they have a Girl Scout account on myGS, they are not eligible to purchase a new membership using the Extended Year membership. Lapsed members may purchase an annual membership for the current membership year or the upcoming membership year starting on April 1. For previous members that do not have an account in myGS, they will be able to create an account and take advantage of the extended year membership as if they were a new member.
