  • College of the Ozarks
  • National Defense
  • Public Relations

    The Goals of this administration will change each year with the Committee emphasis:

      • For this year, they will be as follows:

    Continue to support the National President’s Project by contributing at least $1 per member to
    the National President’s Project.
    Buy a copy of Colonial Klaus and donate it to a local library.
    Donate $1 per member to the RAIN program at North Dakota University.
    Support the College of the Ozarks by purchasing the products that are made by the students.
    Give to their scholarship program.
    Keep up with current affairs. Remember and encourage others to vote. Find ways to get the
    word out about NSDAC. Check with your local newspaper about placing articles. Pass out “All
    About DAC” at events.

    Increase membership:

      • Talk about DAC at other genealogical meetings and invite them to a meeting. Arrange meeting times that are convenient to all. Have some meetings on the weekends and at night for those who work. Have field trips. Invite Members-at-Large to join your chapter. Ask dropped members to re-join. Invite your children, grandchildren, and nieces to join. These young members will be the future leaders of DAC. If we are to continue, we must increase membership.
