HOW TO JOIN
On behalf of the Directory Alumni Council, I would like to extend a warm welcome and congratulate you as you conclude your career with Directory.
Our Directory Alumni Council was founded by a wonderful group of people like you, who thought it might be nice to stay in touch with some of their friends after they have left the company.
Annual dues is $15.00. Membership brings you our informative newsletter, a copy of the Membership Directory, flyers of upcoming events, and timely e-mail notification of information of interest to the Alumni.
The Directory Alumni Council is a great way to stay in touch. Our organization is made up of former Directory employees and has all the attributes of a close-knit family. We do care for each other and try to be there for one another whenever there is a need. We do hope you will join us for the nominal $15 dues.
Again, on behalf of the Directory Alumni Council, Congratulations and Best Wishes for the years ahead.
Claire M. Palmer
To join the Directory Alumni Council
The Directory Alumni Council
Is looking for a few good Men and Women
To serve on its Board of Directors
This is your opportunity to get involved in planning social activities to continue the camaraderie enjoyed by directory employees during their days with the Directory department; assist in the publishing of a membership directory, newsletter and web site allowing members to keep in touch with friends made over the years.
The lifeblood of the Directory Alumni Council is its membership and its heart is the volunteer Board of Directors. If you are the type of person who seeks out and acts on solutions, works well both independently and within a team, and isn't afraid of a little hard work, this may be a great opportunity for you. It is the membership that votes to put people on the Board, for a three year term, and voting takes place at the Annual Meeting in April.
There are positions to be filled. Some have set responsibilities, such as Treasurer, Secretary, Chairman and Vice-Chairman, and these positions are decided each term by the Board of Directors.
For most new Directors, their responsibilities include running 1 event per year, assisting one of the other Directors with large projects from time to time, and familiarizing themselves with the working of the Board with an eye to taking on more responsibilities in the next term.
The DAC Board of Directors meets one day a month from January - June and September - November. Meetings generally run from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
Are you able to accept this commitment?
Officers are elected through an official election process at a board meeting, Board Members nominate candidates for election to the Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting in April.
