The Capital District Mamas & Papas group is a social and support network for parents of children ages 0-5 years old who reside in the Capital District. The purpose of this group is to have discussions, playgroups, social events and classified postings. We have a very busy calendar with many events per week and different events geared towards 0-5 with occasional older kid activities!
This group is meant to:
* foster relationships and offer support to other local parents
* start or join playgroups and meet other Capital District Moms & Dads
* help teach our little ones empathy through community projects and volunteering
* meet other parents in your own neighborhood and beyond
* ask for recommendations from other local parents for daycares, pre-schools,doctors, caregivers, and more!
Once you join the group, you will receive a meetup message of introduction and a request to forward your email for further information. This email will list the upcoming public events Leadership Team Members are meeting prospective members. **PLEASE use an email you frequently use for meetup so you receive notification of messages from meetup and meetup organizers.**
We ask all prospective members to meet with an Organizer before we grant access to the rest of the site. This is a short informal meeting at one of our public events. This meeting is for you and your child's safety and will help maintain the integrity of our group.
At the introductory meeting you will be asked to fill out a short application and bring a form of identification as well as your $15 annual dues. This is a great opportunity to meet some of our members, socialize and ask any questions you may have! Dues are $15.00 per year due on date of joining.
Want to expedite your request to join in? E-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org after signing your profile up as a pending member with us through https://www.meetup.com/CDMAMASANDPAPAS/
All profile requests will stay on the pending member list for one month to allow adequate time to schedule an introductory meeting with a Leadership Team Member. After a month's time, the profile will be deleted from the pending member list (but you will still be able to rejoin at a future date).

Once you have decided to attend an event, you assume full responsibility for any and all associated risks, injuries and accidents, foreseeable or not. The organizers, co-organizers and event hosts, are not and cannot be held responsible for any injuries you, your child or children may suffer while at any meet-up events.
