Help support your MeetupChip in
Hi Spring Hill Mommies! Let's get together for play dates, wine, Pinterest parties or for no reason at all! We've got an amazing community full of fun activities so let's get out and enjoy it!
In order to keep with the goal of our group, we have member guidelines to help have clear expectations of what membership in Spring Hill Mommies Meetup is about. My vision for this group is to have a community of moms who become friends, can rely on each other, network and just have fun.
Guidelines For Spring Hill Mommies
How to Join
•Click on the “Join” link, fill out a profile questionnaire,** include your first and last name**, and upload a recent photo. Any requests for membership that are not accompanied by a complete profile will not be contacted about membership. This is an important element in protecting our members’ privacy.
•New members must attend an event within 30 days of joining; those who don’t will be removed from the group. This is designed to keep our members safe. We don't want to have "lurkers" in the background getting access to information about our members and their children.
•All members need to attend one event per month. Attending is separate from hosting. We want our roster to be a real reflection of our membership. If you have been inactive for 2 months, you’ll be automatically removed from the group under the assumption that you are no longer interested in membership. If we make an incorrect assumption, please, please, rejoin!
• All members are required to host one event per two months. These events do not have to be in your home. They can be at a restaurant, a park, etc. It's a commitment to attend and be the point person for an event. It should be an event exclusive to our group. This is because our moms, especially new moms, are coming to our events to build relationships with other moms and families in our group.
•When an Organizer posts a Meetup to the calendar, not prompted by another member, they are committing to act as Event Host for that event.
•No sales or multi-level marketing events are allowed on the meetup calendar. If posted; they will be removed by an organizer.
•Go when you say you’re going, or change your status.
•Forty-eight (48) hours cancellation notices are required for Mom's Night Out (MNO) events that are hosted in someone's home. (Exceptions are made in cases of emergency. Case of emergency is defined as an unpredictable event. If it's catastrophic enough that you'd be willing to not show up for work without providing your supervisor notice, then it would qualify. However, things like lack of babysitter, rough day, etc. do not qualify. The Meetup system provides everyone with a one week notice so they may prepare for the event.)
•Twenty-four (24) hour cancellation notices are required for in-home play dates. (Exceptions are made in cases of emergency)
•Two (2) hour cancellation notices are required for public events unless specified otherwise by host. We don’t want a mom packing up the kids and traveling across town, just to find out they’re the only one there.
•Cancellations without proper notice time require notification by you to the next person on the waiting list and an email to the host or organizer.
•If an event is approaching and you're on the waiting list, it's imperative that you update your RSVP if you know you will be unable to attend. In all likelihood, the next few people on the list will be bumped up to "yes", and if you're on the list and unable to attend, you might keep the next person in line from enjoying the event.
•We don’t want to be terribly rigid, but we know that “no shows” drain energy and members away from the group. After 2 no-shows/last minute cancellations (without notice), a member will be asked to host an event before attending another event.
