3.  Become a Chapter Coordinator and form The Hat Ladies of (Your Town).    "The Hat Ladies" is a legally protected entity.  I am haTpy to share the joy of having a chapter via consultation and a "How to" Manual for the cost of $500.00.  It is easy to recoup this cost through membership dues. 

Please understand, however, that the value of heading a Hat Ladies chapter comes from "fame, not fortune."  The amount of recognition one receives as a member (or coordinator) because of the community outreach done while wearing beautiful hats is both rewarding and priceless.  Call me at 843-762-6679 to start the process.

4. Incorporate an existing hat club as an affiliate

Existing groups of ladies who love to wear hats of all colors are invited to consider becoming  a Hat Ladies "affiliate."  Hats bring people together. Together we can make a difference in the world of fashion and in the world, in general. The cost is $250.00. Contact me at843-762-6679 to start the process.
