Chapter FAQ

Where do our dues go?

As an IRS recognized non-profit, we have very specific ways that we are allowed to spend our money.  We mainly use our dues for newsletters, open houses, service projects and business supplies.

What happens once I join your chapter?

As soon as we receive your registration packet and dues, you will be sent an invitation to join our Meetup page.  On Meetup we post our monthly calender and have our events listed.  We ask that you RSVP to events you’d like to attend.

With several events each week, we know you can’t possibly attend everything.  We hope to see you as often as you are comfortable attending events.  Just remember, the more events you attend, the more moms you will meet, and the more support you will receive.

I work part time.  May I join your club?

Yes, you may.  We have many active members who work part time.  We are meant to be a support network for at-home mothers.  As such, we generally only have events during daytime hours Monday-Friday.  If you are able to come to events during those times, you are welcome to join.

May I bring my children to events?

Of course!  We are here to support stay-at-home moms.  Children are always welcome to  all events, though most members choose to leave their children at home for our monthly MOMS Night Out.  All children are welcome, regardless of age.  We only request that you keep sick children at home.

Why do we have chapter boundaries?

International MOMS Club® has developed their program based on over 20 years of experience.  They believe that small groups make it easier to create friendships.  That means that chapters sister into smaller groups when they get around 60 members.  The Germantown area currently has two chapters, each with about five elementary schools within their boundaries.

The big advantage to chapter boundaries: you get to know the people in your neighborhood!  You’ll see many of these same moms through the years at PTA meetings and local playgrounds.  You’ll have hyper-local friends that you can easily visit and exchange favors with.  You live in the same general area, so you’ll be interested in going to the same parks and other places since it will be an easy drive for everyone.

What are the Germantown–South boundaries?

Our boundaries include people who live in the following elementary school attendance zones: Daly Es, Fox Chapel ES, South Lake ES, Clopper Mill ES, Germantown ES, Christa McAuliffe ES, Great Seneca Creek ES, Matsunaga ES, or McNair ES.  If you know a stay-at-home mom who lives in our chapter area, bring her to an event!

How do I host an event?

Once you are a member, hosting is easy!  Once you are added to our meetup group, you can  create events in meetup for all members to see.

Is there a way for me to check out your group before I pay dues?
Absolutely! You may attend up to two business meetings before joining. However, you need to become a paid member of our chapter in order to participate in any MOMS Club activities, playgroups, or special interest clubs. Of course, you may join anytime, you are not required to attend two business meetings first!

Is the MOMS Club a religious or political organization?
No. We welcome moms of all religions, ethnicities, political backgrounds and views.
