Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I find out what's going on in the Club?  
A: The Members Monthly Newsletter is your first source for upcoming events and announcements. If you are a member, it will be emailed to you prior to the start of the month. It is important to try to attend the Business Meeting each month to stay involved in what is going on in the club. At our meetings we vote on important issues and your opinion counts!  

Q: When and where are the meetings and activities?
A:  Our business meetings are held once a month.  All other activities vary in day & time (with the exception of playgroups) so everyone has a chance to participate, regardless of their schedule. Activities are never in the same place.  We try to spread them all over our area to make it fair for everyone.

Q: Can my children really come to everything with me? What about kids I baby-sit for?
A: Yes, please bring your children to everything! Being a stay-at-home mom shouldn't keep you at home. (Most moms do choose to leave the kids with dad or a sitter for MOMS Night Out, but nursing infants are always welcome!) You may bring any children besides your own that you are responsible for as long as we have a signed liability release form on hand for each child. Please contact the Treasurer to obtain a copy of the release form.

Q: When and where are the meetings and activities?
A: Our monthly business meeting is the first ___TBD____ of each month. All other activities vary in day & time (with the exception of play groups) so everyone has a chance to participate, regardless of their schedule.  Activities are never in the same place.  

Q: How much are the dues and what do they pay for? Is there any assistance available for the dues?
A: The annual dues are $25.00. We pay the International MOMS Club Corporation $2 per member per year to maintain our charter.  Your dues also pay for the general supplies needed to run the chapter. 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.  We would never want to turn away a Mom who needs support, so if the dues are a hardship for you and your family, let us know and our president will work with you.  (This matter will be handled with full confidentiality) If you would prefer to make payments, that is also an option.

Q: How much will the MOMS Club cost me?
A: You do not need to spend any money besides your annual dues unless you choose to. Members Meetings, play groups, park days, and most activity groups are all free. Some field trips and MOMS 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 gatherings, or donate craft supplies to a childrens' party, and the cost of those are up to you.

Q: What are the average ages of kids?
A: With new members (and children) joining each month, it’s hard to give an exact number.  The ages range from newborns to school aged children.

Q: What are the average ages of the Moms?
A: We have Moms of all ages!

Q: Is the club involved in any community service projects?
A: One of the goals of the MOMS Club® is to perform at least one charitable, humanitarian or social welfare project related to children and families each year. 

Q: How can I get more involved?
A: We rely on our members for everything, so your participation will be very appreciated. Call a coordinator or board member and ask to join their committee. Form a new activity group. Come to the Members' Meetings and share your ideas and opinions. This is YOUR club, and you will get out of it what you put into it.

Q: Are there any "perks" to being in the MOMS Club? 
A: Sure! For one, we have a Caring Moms program that we encourage all our members to call upon when needed. Caring Moms may provide meals, babysitting, errands, etc. to any mom who needs it due to pregnancy, a new child, illness, etc. And of course, let's not discount the amazing friendships you and your kids will make through the MOMS Club and the memories you will make at our activities!!
