Get To Know Your Committees

Congratulations! You are now a member of DRT. So, does it stop there? No, you can become involved with your local chapter, or volunteer to help with a committee. Even if you are a Member at Large, you can volunteer to help a committee.

Or, if you love genealogy, try volunteering with the Membership, CRT Membership, or Headquarters and Museum Committees. Love children? There is the CRT Committee. How about writing, accounting, scrap-booking, law, public relations? Yes, there is a committee for you too, including the Bylaws, Media and Publicity and Finance Committees. Do you have computer expertise? The Senior, Awards, and Publicity Committees are always looking for help with computer related items.  In fact, so is every committee. So get involved! There is a committee that can use your talents!
