Membership via invitation.

We appreciate your desire to join our organization. Prospective members must be sponsored by a current member of the Philadelphia Chapter.

Prospective members will be invited to attend a meeting where pertinent information, such as the qualifications, cost, selection process, and other information will be discussed. Prospective Mothers and their families will be invited to attend select chapter open activities. Invitation to these activities is intended to provide interested mothers with opportunities to get acquainted with members of the Philadelphia Chapter, but does not guarantee membership into the organization.

Invitation to membership is extended after the chapter voting process. Accepted prospective members are required to meet financial obligations and attend member orientation prior to initiation into the Philadelphia Chapter.
