Associates are mothers who have successfully completed their tenures as members. Associates enjoy continued participation without the demands of active membership such as planning activities, attending chapter meetings, etc. An associate can seek lifetime membership depending on her years of service to the organization. Associates sponsor programs such as Mothers Away from Home (MAFH) for alumni Jack and Jill members, and the annual Associates Day of Service.
Our Associate Liaison works with our Associates to maintain the bonds between the active moms and the associates. They are invited to all of our chapter wide events and many attend. Their attendance at our installation/initiation ceremony is especially appreciated by the new members.
The Associates meet quarterly for dinner, conversation and fun. Many are looking forward to future Associates Getaway adventures.
In February we celebrated our Associates with a reception in conjunction with our Founders’ Day Celebration. We gave tribute to them and they gave us words of advice.
