Our upcoming Women’s Encouragement Day on Jan. 26 is one of our most popular events!
Here are some Encouragement Day FAQs that should help you plan and prepare for the day:
I’m not a member of MPE at the Family tier or higher. Can I still come?
Yes, you can register on our website and pay $25 until Jan. 12. (MPE members at the Family tier or higher will pay a discounted rate of $15.)
After Jan. 12, anyone can register at the late registration price of $40 until Jan. 19.
We encourage you to sign up as soon as possible to get the best price!
Why can’t I just show up and pay registration on the day?
Because of catering purposes – our lunch seating capacity is less than 400 – you MUST register on our website.
By registering in advance, you help us know how many lunches to order before the main event.
We also print name badges for all the attendees, based on our registration list.
What can I bring to show I’ve registered?
You will receive a confirmation email when you register as an MPE member at the Family tier or higher.
If you do not have MPE membership at the Family tier or higher, you need to keep your payment receipt when you pay for the event.
Please bring your confirmation of registration (email or payment receipt), as you will be asked for it if any check-in hiccups arise on the day.
If you don’t receive a confirmation email, please check your junk mail folder. If you still can’t find it, contact us to complete your registration.
I have dietary restrictions. Can I still take part in the lunch and refreshments?
Our lunch always features gluten-free options for many of our attendees who have special dietary needs.
If you have other specific questions regarding the lunch, feel free to contact us ahead of time to check the ingredient list.
Do you provide childcare?
We don’t provide childcare as the event is meant specifically for homeschool moms. However, we always feature a special mom’s nursing room. Nursing babies are welcome!
I’ve loved this event so much, I want to help! Can I volunteer?
Yes! We so appreciate everyone who steps up to make this event the best it can be.
We need volunteer greeters and muffin makers – see how you can help at this SignUpGenius sheet!
We have updated this blog post, originally updated in December 2016, for timeliness and detail.
If you have other Encouragement Day questions that aren’t on the list, please contact us. Thanks!
