Want to become a Bettie? Here are some FAQS about joining Battlin' Betties:
*What if there is not a platoon in the state in which I live?
You may apply to join a neighboring platoon if you can commit to making the events. You may also apply to open a new platoon. We require a minimum of 5 qualified applicants to open a new platoon, which also includes one state leader.
*What's the minimum time commitment?
4 events and/or 20 volunteer hours per year. Non-event hours vary and can be completed by doing things like HERO interviews, researching possible events for us to attend, prepping for events we're hosting, etc. Platoon leaders use this requirement as a guideline. They may have a different requirement depending on the demand of our presence within the state you're applying for.
*Do I have to buy my own dresses?
Yes, but they are very inexpensive. Most of our dresses are under $20 and we'll help you find them! All you need is one or two dresses and you're set... although buying/wearing them is addicting and you'll never stop at two!
*Can someone teach me to do my hair?
Absolutely! We can point you in the direction of some good tutorials or get together and show you personally. We can even do it for you the first time if you need that!
*Is there a fee to join?
Not at this time for members. There will be a $100 start up fee for new platoons. This will include ONE state banner, business cards and filing within the state to be recognized as a nonprofit.
*Do you have to be married to a vet or affiliated with the military to join?
Absolutely not! You just need to be a patriotic gal!
*What if I don't live near the state leader?
We attend events in all different areas of the state and you just come to the events that work for you. We attend events on weekends, weekdays, daytime, nighttime. As long as you attend an event within your first couple months of joining and come to at least four per year, you do what fits your schedule and driving distance comfort level!
*Is there an age limit?
You have to be 18 or older! That's it!
*What if I want to do more?
We have platoon members who like to be super involved and it's fabulous! If you want to attend every single event, head up special projects and take on more responsibility, we definitely have a place for you too!
