Every time I look at the Service to America ticker on the DAR Website I am amazed and so proud of the dedication that DAR members have demonstrated through meaningful community service.
Many members are still entering their 2016 service activities in the Online Tally and I encourage all members to enter their service hours within the next few weeks. The deadline for reporting 2016 Service to America hours via the online tally will be February 1, 2017. This deadline coincides with end of year chapter reporting and allows an extended time period for members to enter their 2016 activities. Please enter all 2016 service hours online by this February 1 deadline so that we may account for all of the amazing work that you have done.
As February 1 is also the deadline for the Chapter Master Report (CMR), remember to add your chapter’s total number of 2016 Service to America hours to your report. Chapter leaders can check the Online Tally in e-Membership for their chapter’s total number of service hours entered since Congress and then be sure to add that amount to any additional service hours for the chapter that were not previously entered online. Then that final total number of hours should be reported on the CMR.
Some members are already entering their 2017 Service to America hours from this month! The 2017 hours are being tallied separately from the 2016 entries and will be displayed sometime after February 2, 2017, so we can start watching our progress for this year.
Thank you for all your volunteer work in your communities. You are impacting so many through your selfless efforts and are truly making a difference. Remember to enter you 2016 service hours in the Online Tally by February 1!
