Give away 100 more bookmarks this year than last year. In addition, donate to the Patriotic Education project of making educational videos and lesson plans.
  • Honor and remember all veterans by contributing comfort items, clothes or other items to VA Hospitals or to other veterans groups. Increase your chapter’s donations of these items by 5% this first year.
  • Encourage young people to honor their country by supporting the National Awards Committee. Honor a local JROTC member by giving them a Medal of Award.

Increase membership:

  • Take pride in your DAC membership by telling others who might be interested about DAC. Encourage each member to bring a guest to at least one meeting.
  • Increase membership by adding one new member and one new Golden Acorn to each chapter, each year.
  • Arrange meeting times and places to meet the needs of members. Have at least one event each year that is scheduled so that working women can attend.
  • Promote and support the endeavors of our Golden Acorns by contributing to the Golden Acorns Committee, and by purchasing stationary from them.
  • Invite Members-at-Large and dropped members to join your chapter or state society.
  • Be vigilant of the opportunity to organize a new chapter.
