What they can do. Group owner has complete power. Head admin and group admin help monitor the group and take member complaints ect. Head admin has more power than group admin. Not sure on the specifics. Some groups are member owned because the member makes the group then recruits others she thinks might be interested. Small intimate groups are a lot friendlier than NC and MC lol

 Group owner is the one that owns the group. They have all administrative power for the group

 

Head Admin has the same powers as group owner but isn't the group owner

 

group admin has some administrative powers for the group but not all.

 

Cafemom allows members to create their own groups. The ones owned and ran by Cafemom are not member owned. They are site owned. The individual groups started by members are member owned.

If you click on the FAQ's at the bottom of any page, you will see a list on the right. Click on Group Administration. I use it all the time.

I found this:


There can be up to 3 types of users on a group's admin team. 

Here is what each of them is able to do:
                                                                                                                                               
Group Admin: Has access to most member and forum management functions (accepting applications, deleting posts, etc.), but not overall group settings. She also has ability to feature posts. Each group can have any number of Admins.

Group Head Admin: Has almost all permissions Group Owners currently have, including access to most group preferences and managing a group's admins. Each group can have any number of Head Admins.

Group Owner: Can transfer group ownership, manage head admins, view removed members, and update member maintenance settings. Each group can only have one Group Owner.
