MOMMIES OF ST. CLAIR
We are a group of supportive and easy-going moms, who want to meet other moms and their children. We have a vested interest in keeping this group safe, active, fun and social. Our children vary in ages from newborn to elementary school, but most of them are newborns through Kindergarten age. <p>
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
We welcome any mother who has the time and desire to actively participate in our group. The majority of our events are during the week, which sometimes makes it difficult for working moms. However, we have some moms that work full-time and are still able to join us for at least one event each month.
Our events are varied and we offer something for everyone. Some examples of our meet-ups include park play dates, trips to the zoo, play groups and story hours. We also have Girl's Nights Out (and In), couples nights and so much more!
Our Members are expected to login to our Meetup.com website at least monthly and to attend at least one meetup event every two months to remain an active member of our group. Inactive members will be removed from the group. Dues are non-refundable. Three (3) no-calls/no-shows will result in member being removed from MoSC. Dues are non-refundable. Only active and paid members will have access to MoSC facebook pages. Failure to renew your membership within thirty (30) days of unpaid status will result in member being removed from Meetup. If special circumstances prevent you from adhering to these guidelines, you MUST contact the organizer for an exception. We are moms too and understand that things in life come up. That's life!
All mothers wanting to join the group, must attend a New Mommy Meet and Greet, which is posted on our Facebook Fan Page (www.facebook.com/mommiesofstclair). At the Meet and Greet you will receive instructions about joining the group and have a chance to ask questions. When completing your profile please give us a great introduction and a close-up profile photo of yourself. The introduction you write will be seen by all of our members when they log onto the site and your photo will be what use to recognize you at public events. Don't forget to keep your profile updated too!
In addition, all Members must be on the group mailing list. Email preferences can be adjusted through your personal Meetup.com Account page, if desired. Please make sure your meetup.com email is linked to an email account you check regularly, as that is the primary way an organizer will contact you regarding important information obtaining to the group.
RSVP GUIDELINES </p><p>
Please take a moment to RSVP for events. A "Yes" RSVP should be treated like any other commitment you make. It is disappointing to attend an event that has 12 "Yes" RSVPs only to see 3 people show up. So, as a courtesy to the rest of the group, please update your RSVP within 24 hours notice if possible. Of course, with little ones, sometimes things happen at the last minute - and as moms – we understand! But we do ask that you let the host or someone going to the meetup know if you are not going to be able to attend.
If an event is FULL, please feel free to RSVP to be placed on the waitlist. When someone changes their RSVP to “No”, meetup.com will notify everyone on the waitlist that a spot has opened up and it will be first come, first serve to claim that spot.
NOTE: For any event that has a 'limit' or fee/money involved, if you are changing your RSVP from "Yes" to "No" within 24 hours of that event, you must call the organizer or one of the assistant organizers to let them know. This will allow us to notify the group so that your spot can be filled. Our contact information is located on our Member Pages. Repeated abuse of this policy will result in your removal from the group.
When you RSVP, please do not add your child(ren) as a guest unless specifically requested to do so. Guests are only added when you are bringing along additional adults or children that are not members of the group. </p><p>
CODE OF CONDUCT
We ask that all of our Members be respectful of the opinions and ideas as posted on any Mommies of St. Clair related page. We are all here for encouragement, friendship and support. Lewd, offensive or otherwise inappropriate remarks will NOT be tolerated. If for any reason you have a problem with something going on with the group, please get with one of the organizers to personally discuss it. </p><p>
We’re all adults here with all personality types. Some things people may post may easily offend or upset a member, so we ask that you use discretion when posting something that may be controversial or questionable to some members. We, as Organizers, do not have the time to screen everything posted on Mommies of St. Clair related pages, but if you do not feel comfortable with a post within our group, please feel free to come to an organizer with your concerns. We may ask the original poster to take down their post if a complaint is made. If we do not receive a complaint, we will assume everyone is fine with such posts.
Please be respectful when communicating with one another. We will not tolerate discriminations of all types towards other members and will handle problematic situations on a case by case basis. The well- being of the group is put first, so going forward if we hear of negativity being spread, gossiping between members about other members, or making a member feel uncomfortable at an event, it could lead to repercussions up to and including removal from the group. </p><p>
MESSAGE BOARD GUIDELINES </p><p>
The message boards are for topics including group Announcements, Member Info, Meeting Notes, and other General Discussions. Everyone is welcome to post on our discussion forums. When a member posts in the forums, an email will be sent out to all members who have their email settings set to receive forum posts.
Please refrain from using the message board to promote or create any activities or other groups. If you have ideas for events, please feel free to add them to our calendar or post to our Facebook MoSC group page.
Membership dues are $15.00 per year. We ask that you pay for the year in full so we can use your dues throughout the year for fees and expenses. Please pay attention to your meetup page for due reminders. Dues are paid through your meetup page.
Dues are collected to help cover the cost of Meetup.com fees ($72 every 6 months). Any additional funds are used towards group events. The additional funds help us to plan “pay in advance” events like party room fees and large group fees for events.
New members are requested to pay their dues within 30 days of joining. We invite you to be a part of our group for 30 days before committing to joining. This gives you time to attend as many events as possible and see if the group is a good fit for you. Should you not pay your invoice when it's due, you will be removed from the group. Membership dues are non-refundable.</p>
