How we Support our Chapters
Our #1 purpose is to form a network of support groups for at-home mothers, so the International MOMS Club® provides a lot of support and guidance for its chapters.
We have mother volunteers ready to help any new chapter founder or president with advice, ideas, and encouragement. Our volunteers are all experienced MOMS Club® Moms who have been either founders or officers of their own chapters. They are chosen for their experience, creativity, enthusiasm, understanding of the MOMS Club goals and principles, and their ability to relate to the chapters in their areas. In addition to the Volunteer Coordinators, the International MOMS Club also provides other support for its chapters, including the local chapter manual, other support materials, ideas, and encouragement.
The International MOMS Club helps arrange chapter get-togethers, such as Regional, State or Area Luncheons, conferences, outings, officer meetings or training sessions, and other gatherings that allow members to network, and share ideas and inspiration!
We organize and conduct support groups for all at-home mothers. We offer extensive on-going management consulting services for support groups for at-home mothers, including developing formats for monthly meetings, casual get-togethers, outings, family parties, playgroups, babysitting co-ops, activity groups and service projects for at-home mothers and their children.
We offer educational services, classes, online programs, seminars and workshops for support groups for at-home mothers, including developing formats for monthly meetings, casual get-togethers, outings, family parties, playgroups, babysitting co-ops, activity groups and service projects for at-home mothers and their children.
We have a variety of online resources for our chapters. From our personalized Chapter Information Portal to Online Training tools for our Board members, we have what you need to be successful.
Starting a Chapter is Easy
First, check to see if there is a chapter in your area by using this link by filling out our Find A Chapter form.
If there isn’t a chapter in your area, you need to register to start one. All MOMS Club chapters must be registered with the International MOMS Club. There is a small fee to start a chapter to cover our nonprofit expenses. You will be paid back that fee from the treasury of the chapter you start. Fees are not refundable by International. Although you will enter your credit card information in the secure registration form, you will not be charged until your chapter is approved. If you would prefer to pay by check, just fill out the form and mail it in (but that will take longer!).
We will designate a geographic area for your chapter and assign a volunteer to work with your chapter. The volunteer may contact you at the email address or telephone number you provided. Your credit card will not be charged until your new chapter’s area is approved by International.
After your payment if processed, you will receive either a manual or a link to our upcoming training site. If you have ANY questions at any time, just contact the volunteer who emailed or called you, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help you every step of the way!
If you start a new chapter in the US, on a US military base overseas, or in another English-speaking part of the world, we’ll send you your chapter’s manual, and put you in touch with our volunteer who will help guide you as you start your chapter. Our volunteers will continue to work with your chapter as your chapter grows through the years. That continuing support is one of the things that makes the MOMS Club special!
If you start an International chapter in another part of the world, the manual may not be relevant to your MOMS Club experience, but we will assign a MOMS Club volunteer to help you.
