NEW MEMBERS COURSE – Charting new Directions of Discovery 

NEW MEMBERS COURSE NSDAR GRADUATION CHECKLIST 2017-2019

Participate Endorsement Form

The New Members Course (pdf) provides an opportunity for members to learn more about DAR and how they can become active participants in DAR at all levels – chapter, state, and national. The primary goal of the course is to capitalize on the wave of enthusiasm that many new members have when joining DAR and guide them in learning more about DAR and to assist them in becoming an active DAR member. At the core of the course is a self-guided curriculum structured around a series of online webinars that participants can do at their leisure, along with an independent project. Upon completion of the course, states typically hold a special graduation ceremony at State Conference or another state event to celebrate both the new member’s accomplishment and the chapter she joined.

Any new member or new-member-at-heart who is interested in learning about DAR’s rich history and how they can get involved in DAR activities at the chapter, state and national level is welcome to participate in the New Members Course! For new-members-at-heart, it is a wonderful way to re-engage and learn what new opportunities are available to you since joining DAR.
