Question: I just joined. Now what?
Answer: Welcome! You will be added to the email distribution list and will receive the latest newsletter, calendar and roster. The first thing to do is look over the newsletter and calendar and decide what you want to participate in. Please RSVP for these events. If you notice a way you would like to volunteer, please call or email any Executive Board member. Their information is listed on the last page of each newsletter.
Question: Can my children really come to everything with me?
Answer: Absolutely. You can bring your children to every activity with the exception of Moms Night Out (although nursing infants are always welcome.)
Question: How much will the MOMS Club cost me?
Answer: You do not need to spend any money besides your annual dues of $25, unless you choose to. Most events are free. Some field trips and Mom’s Nights Out may cost additional funds, but we try to keep them reasonable. In addition, you may choose to bring snacks or a potluck dish to some events, or donate supplies to a party, and the cost of those are up to you.
Question: What do my dues pay for?
Answer: We pay the International MOMS Club $2 per member each year to maintain our charter. In addition, your dues pay for other incidental expenses, supplies, stamps, etc. Since we are a non-profit group, we can spend very little on parties, etc. and thus must rely on our membership to donate the time and supplies to make our gatherings work.
Question: I have an interest that the MOMS Club doesn’t address. Whom do I talk to?
Answer: If you have any suggestions, please call any Executive Board member. We would love to help you start a new activity group! Chances are good that if you are interested in something, another member is too.
Question: How can I get more involved?
Answer: We rely on our members for everything, so your participation is very appreciated. Call any Executive Board member and ask to help plan events. Form a new activity group. Come to the Member’s meetings and share your ideas and opinions. This is YOUR club, and you will get out of it what you put into it.
Question: When do I need to renew and whom do I pay?
Answer: Memberships are good for one year. Your renewal is due by the end of your anniversary month. You will receive a reminder letter from the club Membership VP the month prior to your renewal. Also, upcoming renewals are listed in the current month's newsletter and your membership date is reflected in the roster. Submit your dues to our current Membership VP.
