Meet the goMOMS Board
Our group couldn't exist without our board.
Have you been looking for a way to get more involved in goMOMS? This could be it! Being a part of the board is a wonderful way to build relationships with other moms of multiples, support this wonderful organization (it literally couldn't exist without our board!), and drive what events goMOMS hosts all year long.
We don't currently have a full board, and we would be happy to have new board members join mid year.
Questions or ready to join? Contact our President, Amanda!
The president is the only position that must be held by a veteran board member. She organizes the first meeting and the end of year party in June, and also oversees board meetings.
Vice President (2 people)
The co-vice president positions are fun and hands on! You get to plan meeting topics ( But really only have to come up with five new topics out of our 10 meetings. Due to some months staying the same each year such as the welcome back mtg, social night, etc) We've done such a variety of topics over the last 5 years that it would be easy to look back and contact some of our previous speakers making this a super easy task. You also get to organize the holiday party and the adopt-a-family outreach program. If you like having a good time and helping other mamas out this position is for you!
The goMOMS secretary helps our meetings and special events run smoothly by creating event sign-ups through Evite and sending them to members and posting them on Facebook! She also takes minutes at the executive board meetings.
The goMOMS treasurer is responsible for all of the organization's finances. She keeps an accurate account of all of our funds, makes payments and reimbursements, and helps the co-sale coordinators with ensuring there is enough cash on hand at the sale and running the tag room.
Sales Coordinator (2+ people)
The co-sale coordinators plan and execute the fall and spring mom-to-mom sales for goMOMS. Only members are allowed to sell at these sales and it is set up department style. Some of the things the co-sale coordinators do are: secure the location, set dates for the for the fall and spring sales, advertise the sale, update registration form and sales flyers, obtain permits for signs, assign the jobs for sellers and volunteers, and manage the overall flow of the day. These are BIG jobs, but working in a team with the help of all the sellers makes it a little easier and a LOT rewarding!
The website administrator is responsible for keeping the goMOMs website up-to-date including content, passwords, and forms. She also has administrative rights the group's Facebook page, Instagram account and all of the board email accounts.
Board Member Perks
1. Get to shop the sale before anyone else!
2. Drive what types of events and meetings goMOMS hosts
3. Build stronger relationships with your fellow mothers of multiples!
... and so much more!
The committee chairs help all of our meetings and events run smoothly! They oversee meeting set up and clean up (with the help of volunteers!). They also keep track of supplies at the meeting locations. Lastly, they plan the annual fall and spring parties which are always a ton of fun!
Fundraising (2 people)
The co-fundraising coordinators organize the groups fundraising events as a way to generate money for goMOMs programs and scholarships. The biggest event these board members organize (and the group's largest fundraiser!) is the annual auction held each fall. Additionally, these board members organize smaller fundraising opportunities at places like BW3, the bounce house, etc.
The membership coordinator is responsible for collecting and processing new and returning member registrations. She works closely with the treasurer to make sure all dues are cashed. She also makes sure everyone who is renewing does so by the deadline set each year to make sure members don't miss out on all the great things goMOMs has to offer! Lastly, she's responsible for maintaining the membership rosters and archived rosters.
Moms Chat (1-2 people)
The mom's chat coordinators run mom's chat before each of our regular meetings (some meetings such as the annual auction don't have mom's chat). They also help member's by posting questions from mom's chat on the Facebook group as well as other helpful and fun topics. The mom's chat coordinators also plan our annual spa night which is a wonderful evening of pampering!
