127th Continental Congress Approaching

Written by: Ann Dillon, President General

We are finalizing plans and counting down the days until the 127th Continental Congress! This year’s Congress will take place from June 20 – 24, 2018. The week will be full of important business meetings and social functions. Stay tuned on the Congress section of the Members’ Website and on the DAR Congress App for updates about special award winners and guest speakers. If you have not yet made plans to attend the 127th Congress, I hope you will do so. I am pleased to share some of the details and updates about this year’s Congress.

Credentialing and registration information for Congress was mailed to your Chapter Regent. If you plan to attend Congress and would like to pre-register, please contact your Chapter Regent. The pre-registration postmark deadline is April 15 and the registration fee is $40 for members and $15 for guests. If you miss the April 15 pre-registration postmark deadline, we still encourage you to attend Congress and register onsite for a $50 member fee and $20 guest fee.

The Tentative 127th Continental Congress Schedule is now available to view online and can also be found in the March/April Daughters newsletter. The schedule includes tentative times and locations for the important committee, club, state and national events taking place during the week of Congress. The tentative schedule will continue to be updated online leading up to Congress, so please check the Members’ Website for new information.

Our National Chairs are hard at work on their second edition of the National Committee online video presentations. Click here to access and watch last year’s videos, and be sure to check the Members’ Website for information and announcements about this year’s videos that will be uploaded later this spring. I hope you will watch these video presentations with your chapter and fellow members, and, if you are able to make it to Congress, will come to Service to America Night to discuss any questions and feedback with our National Chairs.

As we get closer to Congress, I hope you will remember to regularly check the Congress section of the Members’ Website for updates and announcements. New Congress information will continue to be added in the months leading up to the 127th Congress.
