While researching for our move to the UAE, I stumbled upon the group, Abu Dhabi Mums. I “liked” their Facebook page and quietly followed the group’s news and events. I truly liked what I saw and couldn’t wait to experience the group in person.
I saw a post on the Facebook page regarding membership renewals. I responded to that post requesting clarification on establishing a new membership. The page admin responded promptly with the information I needed. Within 24 hours of that correspondence I received a personal email from the membership chairperson with an application and map to their location attached. I was impressed with their follow-up and thoroughness.
I decided to attend an event before joining. This past weekend my family and I met with a few members at an event called Mix and Match. It was held outside at a park in Khalifa City A. I was nervous to be new and approaching people who were already familiar with each other but my jitters were quickly calmed. We were greeted by warm spirits and smiling faces. The other mums were easy to talk to and shared a wealth of information regarding the current membership drive and group activities. I felt welcome and I had no doubts about joining.
This morning I went to Pony Club at the Royal Stables where new memberships and renewals were being accepted. The person handling everything had a simple but very efficient process. She was even able to print personalized, plastic membership cards on the spot. Ha! I just love when efficiency meets style. Abu Dhabi Mums got the job done and they looked good doing it. I am very pleased to be a new member and can’t wait to get fully immersed into the group.
