Bringing Children to Meetings Policy

Purpose: To ensure meetings can be conducted with little to no disruptions. To keep all children who are in attendance safe.

Scope: To be applied to all members, including chapter volunteers.

Responsible Persons: Chapter Coordinator to enforce; members to follow the policy.

Policy: Members should always try first to find childcare for their children before bringing them to a meeting. Please do not bring sick children to the meetings. Because this is a mom-focused organization, SHE Leads Group realizes that sometimes moms may have to bring their children to a meeting. In order for a mom to bring a child to the meeting, the following needs to be met:

  1. A hold harmless agreement must be signed to SHE Leads Group should their child be hurt at a meeting. The mother is solely responsible for their child’s actions and safety.

  2. The child needs to be well-behaved and able to sit quietly for the duration of the meeting. To keep children occupied and satisfied for the duration of the meeting, children are welcome to bring electronic devices to the meetings as long as volume is muted or they are wearing headsets. Snacks are also permitted. No jumping, horseplay, or roaming about the building is allowed.

  3. In meeting spaces where there is only one room, members will receive preferential seating first. Children may be required to sit on the floor. Children must be visible to the parent if they are sitting in an adjacent area. Children must be of the age/maturity level to sit away from their mother and be well-behaved towards other children who might be in attendance.

If a member’s child does not abide by the rules, the member and child will be expected to leave and if multiple offenses happen, the member could be asked to leave SHE Leads Group. A member can have the privilege of bringing their child to meetings revoked at any time. (See “Asking a Member to Leave” policy)

What does SHE stand for?

SHE is more than a leads group - SHE Leads Group exists to support women in business development roles. SHE Members are women in business who appreciate the role many women have being a full-time caregiver to loved ones and advancing their full-time career or business. The letters “S H E” stand for Supporting Heart & Enterprise ®. Heart is our families, or anything near and dear and personal to us. Enterprise is our business or career. Members are expected to uphold the values and culture for which SHE stands. Every member of SHE Leads Group should desire to be a resource to each other. SHE Leads Group is more than just a leads group. We are a group of supportive women who truly want to help others in any way possible.
