Welcome to The Red Hat Society®! As a valued Member of RHS you are now connected to a worldwide community of like-minded women who understand, appreciate and believe in living a fun and joyful life! Yes, we’re serious about F-U-N! You’ve embarked on a journey with the most unique playgroup in the world! We get goose bumps just thinking about the fun awaiting you!

It’s our privilege and honor to provide you with your Royal Resources! We hope you’ll get involved and utilize all the resources the Society makes available to you. How much fun you have (and make) with the Sisterhood is completely up to you. 

Resources Fit For Royalty!

The RHS website is designed to provide you with multiple ways to connect with Queens and Members, creative and inspiring ideas on ways to play, and opportunities only available to card-carrying Queens and/or Members of the Society! You will need to use your newly created username and password to gain access to these areas.

We strongly suggest that you familiarize yourself with the “bells and whistles” of your online playground by watching our helpful video tutorials or downloading instructional pages.

  1. Set your email preferences to ensure you do (or do not) receive alerts from the RHS site.  The instructions can be found in this tutorial:
  2. Next, we hope you'll upload a profile photo and take time to fill in your interests and hobbies.  The more you share about yourself the easier it will be for new RHS friends to connect with you.  How to do that can be found here:  
  3. Introduce yourself with a post on the Official Red Hat Society® Group
  4. Search for other Members within your city (or surrounding cities), send a private message and ask to connect with them.
  5. Need your membership card now? Simply print your Membership card from the website.  Instructions can be found here:

New Queens of the RHS:

  1. We hope you'll consider leading a new Chapter Group in your area.  If you decide to create a Group to welcome other RHS Members to play, be sure to request your Chapter Group to be created by filling in this form: Once the group is created, you will receive a message in your RHS inbox. 
  2. You will be added to the Official Red Hat Society® Queens Group where you'll find your Queenly resources and communications from Hatquarters.  We hope you'll introduce yourself with a post in the Group.
