The Girl Scouts of South Carolina Mountains to Midlands works to provide girls around the state with leadership and skill developing experiences. In order to do that, they need a strong membership, and they need to get past the reputation of being all about the cookies. GSSC-MM came to TCA with questions about how to target its fall recruiting drive.

Additionally, TCA analyzed the successful programs of GSSC-MM’s competitors and came up with recommendations on how to better respond.
