McMom’s needs Y-O-U! I NEED YOU!!! Our McMom’s Board elections are coming up and we need you to think about running for a position. Your current board members are ALL working moms; in the home, outside of the home, inside and outside of the home, etc. Our club does not run by magic or by accident…okay sometimes by a miracle…we depend on our members and board to take care of the general meetings, fundraisers, garage sale, parties, events, play dates, etc. We are a few members who give SOME of our time to help. Personally, I work full time IN and OUT of the home (it’s just the semantics of the schedule), PTA, Team Manager for a BESA Soccer Team, help with homework, church, wife, etc. and I still have time to dedicate a FEW hours a month to McMoms. This is not a full time job and the Board works together to make it all work. We ask that Board Members attend the board meeting the first Thursday of each month and general meetings the fourth Thursday of the month; work and life do come up and we do understand that ladies can’t always make it to every meeting.
There are some jobs that can be done from home with a phone and a computer, such as Programs, Newsletter Editor and Librarian. Then there are a few that have to give more time during events such as Parties and Fundraising/Garage Sale.
Just so you can put this into an overall time commitment…a term is 1…ONE fiscal year (August 1 – July 31). Board Members can run for their same office for a 2nd term if they desire or can run for a different office. After taking a year break from an office, a person can run for election of that office again; an officer cannot hold the same office for more than 4 total terms.
All positions are considered open and all positions must be voted on. If you need to know how much time a position takes ask the person who is currently holding the position!! Being on the Board is a great way to get to know more MOMS and develop friendships which will last a lifetime!!!
Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you or our club!! Thank you for being a part of McMoms and sharing the journey.
