Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I start a Capable Moms Club? What steps do I need to take?
The first step is
to register your chapter. (It is only $49 for the year and it includes the leader's membership fee, so really you start your chapter for FREE. When you register a chapter, you receive a Capable Moms Club handbook. The handbook will guide you in getting your chapter
How do I find members for my chapter?
First of all, mom's are everywhere so it is easy to find members. Moms like you are seeking a support group where they can care, share and dare to be better moms.
We also recommend that you use MeetUp, social online moms groups, community bulletin boards, church bulletins to get the word out. The Capable Moms Club manual also has a press release that is easy to submit to your local and community newspapers.
Am I on my own once I register a chapter?
not! The whole point of Capable Moms Club is to end isolation for moms and bring them together in fun, educational and inspiring ways. When you register a chapter you will have books, videos and coaching calls to rely on. All Mom leaders are volunteers with enormous hearts who usually have mom friends to help them. Capable Moms Club is the perfect vehicle to take you to a world of new friends who truly understand you and what you are going through. Being a mom can sometimes feel as though you are in a storm, and as the song says that I learned when I was young, "When you walk through a storm, you should never walk alone."
What types of activities are suggested for a new chapter?
Start off with simple activities for the first month.
Open House to announce your new chapter and a casual park day are a
great beginning. Add in a local get together or field trip someplace fun or a MOMS
Night Out, and you have a wonderful first month calendar. As your
chapter grows, you can add other activities like playgroups, lunch
bunch, cooking club, mom's working out together, mom and kids yoga, scrap booking, book clubs, bible studies and other interesting and fun activities as other
members join and help organize them. The activity groups you can add are
unlimited. Let your membership know the kinds of things they can help
start through your chapter and then as they join, enlist their help in
starting the new, broader activities. The more moms who are involved in
actively planning your chapter's activities, the happier and more
successful your chapter will be. If moms are anything, they are creative!
How much of a time commitment is required to start a chapter?
To get the chapter
started, you will need time to have the first meeting and set the
initial calendar. After you get started, the Chapter Founder will become
the President. As President, you get to choose the Executive Board
members, who will aid you. These four people will assist you in guiding and building the chapter, but
the whole membership should help plan and execute the chapter's plans.
The amount of time required is up to you. If you can delegate to your
board and other members, the President’s job is mainly supervising others.
How much money is required to start a chapter?
Initially there is
the $49 registration fee to Capable Moms Club. There are also
some other start-up costs like copies, postage and possibly room
rentals. If you keep your receipts, your club treasury will reimburse you
once you have dues-paying members.
How much money is required to become a member?

What do Capables Mom Club leaders and members do to give back to the community in which they live?
Each chapter can support any effort to benefit the lives of women and children, however, as a whole, Capable Moms Club will join with other moms in the community to support Heart to Heart Moms, a charity dedicated to helping mothers of seriously ill children. Each year the Monday after mother's day, the Capable Moms volunteers will make baskets (or sacks) of goodies, books, treats, etc. and deliever them to the hospital of their choice for the mothers of seriously ill children to be encouraged, remembers and supported.
