Membership

Benefits Abound!

Being a part of Lamorinda Moms brings a great deal of benefits – both socially and personally.  Below is a snapshot of some of the many perks…

  • Our Online Community on BigTent:  Members have access to a remarkable web presence with BigTent which provides a vast number of resources, a private online discussion forum, expert articles, member recommendations, etc… Basically everything related to your Lamorinda Moms membership is aggregated into this one site – it’s a terrific tool to keep you connected!

  • Lamorinda Moms Newsletter:  Our quarterly newsletter is sent to all members (except for Alumni members) and includes articles on things such as parenting tips, safety, tips, recipes, upcoming member-only related activities, community events and other mothering related topics. View a sample issue.

  • Monthly Meetings featuring topics of interest to the Moms of Lamorinda:  Topics range from family planning to children’s health, preschool selection to planning birthday parties or fitness for moms. Over the years, we’ve brought in many locally and nationally acclaimed speakers relevant to mothering and parenting.

  • Playgroups:  Playgroups are organized by mothers within the club and are mainly organized by age or zone.  It’s a great opportunity for Moms to connect with other Moms… and for our little ones to play together too!

  • Sub Clubs:  Whether your interest is in gardening, sipping wine, book club, we have subgroups for you… and if there’s not one that fits your interest, start one on your own!

  • Neighborhood Zones:  The Lamorinda area is divided by elementary school zones.  To determine which zone you are in, go to
    http://www.schoolfinder.ca.gov.  As a zone member you will be invited to an annual family event organized by LMs so you can meet your neighbors!

  • Local Member Discounts/Partnerships:  One of the great membership perks is group ticket discounts to local shows and events as well as year round discounts to local businesses.  Few examples: Monterey Bay Aquarium, Six Flags, Day One and Baby Boot Camp.

  • Exclusive Member Only Events:  Members are invited to take part in our seasonal celebrations such as Halloween Trick-or-Treating, Valentine's Day Party, Spring Egg Hunt, and Summer Fest -- all of which are always fun for the whole family!

  • Moms Dinners:  Whether you’ve just delivered a baby, are on bedrest, or just need a little help with pulling together dinner, count on the “MomDins” team to bring by a yummy home cooked or take-out meal! Please note this benefit is offered to those members residing in Lamorinda and Walnut Creek only.

  • Local Resources and Recommendations:  As a member, there is no shortage of shared resources and recommendations found on the forum and reviews tabs on our BigTent website, and on our “Best of Lamorinda” list.
