How to Launch a Chapter
We would feature you on the Chapter Leaders page of MotherhoodLater.com and promote you as the chapter head in Baby Bloomer, our newsletter, and on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn (in our groups). We would also invite you to write a brief later mom testimonial for inclusion in Baby Bloomer. We recommend that chapter heads ideally plan one event per month, if possible…and certainly more is welcome. Whatever activity you like. Moms only. Moms and kids. Families. Doesn’t have to be overly involved. We have an online group for chapter heads on Facebook that you would be invited to join to connect with other chapter heads and share ideas and more. And, we can create a Facebook group specifically for your chapter.
Another way to further attract members to your chapter is to post flyers (which we will provide) around your area on bulletin boards and submit free calendar listings to local parenting publications (if any), weekly papers, and any local parenting websites that feature stuff to do. We also recommend that as people express interest, you recruit others to organize events…so it becomes a team effort. Let us know what more we can tell you and if you’d like to join our chapter head community!
There is no fee to become a chapter head and launch a group.
Email us if you’d like to come on board at firstname.lastname@example.org and put START A CHAPTER in the subject line. Let us know why you’d like to launch one, the age of your child/children, your age, where you live, what other sites/organizations/moms groups you belong to (if any), and anything else relevant you’d like to share. We hope that moms who join our team will feel a sense of commitment, and get excited about bringing moms together, making new friends, supporting the mission of Motherhood Later, etc.
