First Quarter 2007 in Review

One of our goals this year is to do a better job communicating to YOU. As part of this we decided to post our accomplishments on a quarterly basis. So here's what we did last quarter! :)
    Opened six new Mommies sites: HighCountryMommies (NC), MyOmahaMommies (NE), BuffaloMommies (NY), CamdenMommies (SC), JeffersonCountyMommies (MO)

    Opened our first two sites for Dads only: SaltLakeCityDads (UT) and CharlotteAreaDads (NC)
    Do you know a dad who might want to start a Dads site? Please have him visit http://www.themommiesnetwork.org/dads.php

    Welcomed over 3,200 new members to the Network - a 57% increase, so today we have over 10,000 members across 33 sites in 14 states.

    Completed the first phase of a major site overhaul, with several new features including...
      "Refer a friend" form (Community page)
      Flyers links (Community page)
      Recipe Database (Community page)
      Additional "View Recent Posts" options (Forum Index)
      News and local weather (Home page)
      Network Site list (main pages drop-down)
      Sponsorship rate sheets (Sponsors tab)
      Partners list (Partners page)
    Welcomed three new Regional Managers to our team, bringing us to a total of five moms focused on helping to nurture and grow our sites:
      Jennifer Murdock, Western Regional Manager (SaltLakeCity, SLOCounty, Fresno, UtahCounty, Honolulu)
      Amy Sloan, Southeastern Regional Manager (LakeNorman, Triangle, Alamance, AtlantaArea, Sandhills)
      Kim Dronsky, Southeastern Regional Manager (CentralPiedmont, Statesville, YorkCo, HighCountry, UnionCounty)
      Amanda Anderson, Northeast Regional Manager (Richmond, HudsonValley, Peninsula, Frederick, MidShore, Buxmont, Buffalo)

    Your Regional Manager can be reached via PM to the "TMNRegAdvisor" account on this site. We will be adding a Regional Manager for our Central and Dads sites later this year.

    Welcomed two new Advisors to our team, bringing us to a total of the following six moms and dads focused on helping TMN and our sites be successful in specific areas:
      Amanda Keys (Charlotte) - Charitable Events Advisor
      Ruth Vuong (Charlotte) - Graphic Designer
      Alison Crabtree (Charlotte) - Chief Financial Officer
      Beth Benjamin (Triangle) - Promotions Advisor
      Jaime Pierce (SLOCounty) - Fundraising Advisor
      Kevin Meininger (Charlotte) - Technical Advisor
We hope you are enjoying your site - getting the support you need and developing strong friendships with other local moms and dads. We have BIG goals for the rest of the year, many of which cost money, so if you'd like to thank us for providing this free resource please....

    Make http://www.GoodSearch.com your standard search engine with The Mommies Network as the beneficiary. The Network gets $0.01 per search, and it doesn't cost you anything.

    Purchase toys thru http://www.eBeanstalk.com (used code TMN01 and get 10% off and free shipping) and ask your friends and family to do the same. Tell them you heard about them thru The Mommies Network and 10% of your purchase will be donated back to the Network.

    Get a local business to sponsor this site. We have very attractive forum, newsletter and site sponsorship options - with all the details on the Sponsors tab. Ask your site admin for more information!
With over 10,000 members these little things can really add up, allowing us to reach out to more moms and dads, provide our sites with new features and faster access, and enabling us to make significant charitable donations.

And lastly....congratulations to the following three sites who each won $100 (torwards a site celebration) from TMN during our First Quarter Membership Blitz:
    Greatest Increase in Number of Members: TriangleMommies with 438 new members

    Greatest Percentage Increase in Membership: AtlantaAreaMommies with 305%

    Greatest Percentage Increase in Board Participation (members with >10 posts): MidShoreMommies with a 424% increase

Congratulations, and enjoy spending that money! ;)
