About the Novato Mothers' Club

The Novato Mothers Club offers friendship and activities for mothers in Novato.  Events include family activities, mothers nights out, holiday parties, playgroups, outreach to the community, and a rummage sale.  Members are required to volunteer two hours to an event or activity, or give a donation to offset the time if they cannot volunteer.  The club allows Moms in Novato to meet and feel supported by other mothers of kids of all ages.  It's an especially great opportunity for those new to Novato who want to meet new friends.  Read more about our events and member benefits.

Our Board consists of a dedicated group of moms that are committed to ensuring the success of the Novato Mother's Club. This means we feel it's important to make sure all our members and their families feel welcomed, supported, and actively involved in our events and activities. 

NMC Co-directors:

Amanda McCormick
2nd year Co-Director

I have been in Novato for almost 3 years, after spending 10 years in New York City.  My son is 3.5 and my daughter is 2.  I work for a nonprofit doing digital projects and research.  I love baseball (go A's!), visiting new places, watching House Hunters International, and all of those are even better if I've got a glass of wine or two while I'm at it.

Anna Smith
2nd year Co-Director

It has been a pleasure to serve as an NMC Co-Director for the past year.  I have lived in Novato for about 9 years and before that, I lived in Santa Rosa.  My daughter is 5 and my stepson is 15.  I love to hike, love good restaurants, and hanging with friends.  I'm a mostly retired teacher who does a little tutoring and teacher training on the side.  My main and favorite job title is Mama!

Emily Cremidis
1st year Co-Director

I have lived in Novato since 2012.  My husband Sacha is a chef at Nugget.  We live in San Marin with our 3 year old and nearly 1 year old sons, and two fur boys, Percy and Oliver.  I am a former teacher and principal and I currently work for Collaborative Classroom, an Alameda-based nonprofit that supports teachers with curriculum and professional learning.  Any other year, the Cremidises would be out and about- Giants' games, ice skating, seeing live theatre.  This year we are simply grateful for our health and our pool.

Sarah Rubalcava
1st year Co-Director

I am a mom to a 2 year old and a step-mom to 14 year old.  I moved to Novato in the late '80s and attended Pleasant Valley, Sinaloa, and San Marin.  Formerly, I worked for the City of Novato Parks and Recreation Department (10yrs) and The Novato Unified School District (15yrs).  Currently, I work as a tutor and toddler chaser.  I enjoy being an active member of the community and look forward to my new role as Co-Director of NMC.  I enjoy reading and watching bad reality tv with a glass wine.

NMC Board Committees

Each event has a committee to organize the event.  Plus there are committees for the newsletter, advertising, and outreach to the community.  Joining a committee on the board is an excellent way to meet people.  Plus you can attend the board meeting, which is every other month and virtual for the time being.
