JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP

 

A Junior is a DAR member 18 through 35 years of age.  Although no longer a Junior after her 36th birthday, she may continue to page at state conference and Continental Congress (the NSDAR annual national meeting in Washington D.C.) until her 41st birthday. She holds full DAR membership, and, when qualified, may serve as an officer or committee chair at the chapter, state, and national levels.

 

An informed Junior membership is essential for participation at all levels. Juniors are encouraged to learn and to lead in support of DAR objectives. Juniors attend meetings, serve on committees, subscribe to the DAR Magazine, and study the DAR Handbook to learn more about DAR. 

 
WHAT IS A PAGE?
 

Members of the National Society between the ages of 18–40 are eligible to page at Continental Congress. Pages assist all of the Congress committees and staff responsible for the smooth operation of Continental Congress. They serve as hostesses, errand runners, flag bearers and helping hands to all members in attendance. Additionally, pages provide pageantry to the processions. The value of paging within the NSDAR has long been recognized: paging connects members from all parts of the globe, promotes lifelong friendships, fosters awareness of different roles within the National Society and provides opportunities for leadership.

 

The criteria for paging include an interest in volunteerism and a commitment to the DAR. The invitation to serve as a page at Continental Congress is issued by the President General. Pages are invited upon recommendation from their State Regent.
