The current membership of The Daughters of the Republic of Texas is approximately 7,160 women. There are 106 chapters.
This membership is open to women who wish to be associated with a chapter and find sponsorship within the chapter. Chapter members can attend chapter and state meetings, serve on chapter and state committees and hold office at the chapter and state level. Chapter membership carries the reward of participating in the chapter activities aimed at furthering the goals of celebration and preservation of our Texas Heritage.
If you wish to learn more about chapter membership you are encouraged to locate a chapter near you and contact the Chapter President or Chapter Registrar. They will help guide you through the application process. Please see our chapters listing to find a chapter near you.
The second type of membership is not associated with a chapter. This membership is generally sought by those ladies not residing near a chapter, but who wish to become members of the organization. The member at large can attend state meeting and vote but cannot hold office.
To learn more about the application process, please contact the The DRT Registrar General.
Chapter only membership
There is another category of membership at the chapter level only. This is the “Associate Member.” This is a woman who has interest in the goals and activities of DRT but cannot meet all of the membership requirements. The DRT encourages anyone with a love of Texas history to join us in celebrating and preserving this heritage.
