**update** I will be relaunching this group on a new platform soon. I love the idea of a moms' group, that does not require a fee. Meetup.com is making it more and more difficult to do so. You may have already noticed a change with your other groups--Meetup is encouraging Organizers to collect dues, changing the pricing, reducing billing options and not allowing optional member donations. I personally don't think it's fair to say that Meetup is free to join, but then expect members to pay something like $10 for every group. (Have a flat fee and be done with it. Also, it's just a forum, they aren't organizing or doing anything--I don't feel like dishing out money to have members and organizers do all the work anyway. Done venting; I promise!)

I encourage you to make the best of the group! Plan, have fun, make connections, share email, network at events, make friends! We're moving forward this year--stay tuned for an updated page. Thanks for your patience.

Sincerely,

Michelle

Hi!

This group was started because although there are a lot of great groups, there wasn't one for "mature moms". Moms in their 30s, and older with newborns and infants. I am 33 and have one young child. When the original organizer stepped down, I stepped up because I wanted to make sure that the group for mommies like me would still be around. Hopefully there will be an interest :)

I too, like the group's founder, am not from this area, so would love to meet new moms and explore the Alexandria area.

Members of this group must:

  • Remember that this is a private group, with members that hope to form friendships. 
    • You must post a recent photo of yourself so that we can identify you at events.
    • Try to stay involved. We're all moms and understand that "life happens", but do remember that philosophy works both ways. Members and organizer may often feel underpaid & over exerted, but we are all ladies looking out for our children, and reaching out to have a good time. We are not party planners, or paid professionals--we rely on member feedback and support to make this group work. This group is as active as you make it!
    • Please keep your RSVPs current. Contact the organizer if your plans change and you can not update your RSVP. Realize that we worry about you and we made plans for you. Sorry, but no-shows won’t be tolerated. An excess of no-shows (3) may get you removed from the group. Please contact the organizers if you do not make an event.
    • Remember your manners, bring your sense of humor, help facilitate a supportive environment
  • You may be removed from this group if you
    • harass another member
    • use this group exclusively to market your business
    • have 3 or more no-shows (not showing up to an event, and not contacting the event organizer)

**note: donations are appreciated but NOT required. While Meetup is free for members, it charges organizers to have a page. This page costs a minimum of $12 a month (cost is higher if payments are made month-to-month, rather than prepaid)**

All donations will be logged in the "money" section of this group http://www.meetup.com/Alexandria-Mature-Mom...

We're 343 Mature Mommies

New members must be approved by the Organizer

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
