Hi and welcome to National Association for Military Moms and
Spouses! We are delighted you have joined us and there's LOTS for
you to do here. But with all the activity, information, connecting
and sharing going on, there's one key ingredient that makes it all
This guide will help you get started on this network and help
you make the most of your free membership with us. Here's what you
can do RIGHT NOW:
1. Get a profile picture up. Now, that beautiful
default photo of those two women slapping hands that's loaded next
to your name is nice, but we'd all rather see YOU! Load a quick
picture of yourself so everyone will know who they're connecting
2. Upload photos of your family and/or friends. What's
even cooler than a picture of yourself is pictures of people who
like you! :O) Share with us your circle of friends and family. You
never know who you might find on this network and reconnections are
3. Complete your "My Page" page.
This will personalize the
whole experience for you. Nothing better than your own personal
stamp on your corner of the Association "universe".
4. Join a group (or start one).
There are so many
groups here on NAMMAS (over 50!) filled with people are narrowing
their interests based on location, status, service branch,
etc. Find one for yourself and get busy connecting!
5. Invite your friends!
Don't you know it's not good that
(wo)man should be alone? The success of this online Association
depends solely on YOU. That means the next time you hear one of
your mom or spouse friends complaining that they don't know how to
get organized for PCS, how to keep a great schedule for you and the
kids when your man's deployed, or that it's so hard to make
friends, that's the perfect opportunity for you to invite them your
Association. Use this link
to invite your girlfriends and help
spread the word about the great resources we have available.
As with any organization, there's got to be some rules. And
wouldn't a military group be un-military without some? That's why
before you go off saving the world one woman at a time, you should
take a look at the "House Rules" page. You can
find them here.
Not a long list of stuff, but we want to make
sure you maximize your experience here and don't abuse it. Don't
worry, it's easy stuff...any mom or wife would be proud.
That's it! We look forward to getting to know you and being the
premier resource for supporting you with help information for your
