GSGLA General Policies
The GSGLA General Policies include only those items which address critical safety standards, were potentially volatile issues at the troop level with a history of negatively impacting councils, and/or could directly impact GSGLA in terms of potential liability. All other practices and procedures that are volunteer related can be found in Volunteer Essentials.
Troop/Group Financing Policy Information
GSGLA has a new standardized troop/group revenue earning policy. Please refer to the policy and accompanying documents for more information.

Conflict of Interest and Whistleblower Policy
The GSGLA Board of Directors has approved both a Conflict of Interest and Whistleblower Policy as part of its commitment to good governance, disclosure, and transparency.
The Conflict of Interest Policy is reviewed annually by each board member and key staff member, who must disclose any potential conflicts of interest from which they must recluse themselves from decision-making responsibilities.
The Whistleblower Policy is in place to prevent fraud and embezzlement by establishing a reporting process allowing all staff, board members, and key volunteers to report concerns. Key volunteers include those with decision-making responsibilities over the revenue and expense decisions of GSGLA. It is not a suggestion box for other concerns unrelated to GSGLA finances.
The Whistleblower Policy allows for reporting, without retaliatory action, any legitimate concerns within the organization. There is an opportunity to report concerns anonymously, though, providing contact information is more helpful, as additional information may be necessary to aid in the investigation.
