    It's hard to believe where things have come for me in just 4 short years of belonging to the DAR. After years of doing family history research, my mom and I both joined the DAR just over 4 years ago. At first, we thought it wasn't even going to be possible as our application needed additional work since we didn't fully understand the application process. Thanks to some wonderful people who were able to help us we were able to get accepted into the DAR. At first, it was mostly about just getting accepted for genealogy purposes, but now DAR has become a huge part of my life. After joining, I was asked to help on a committee the next year. Feeling nervous and uncertain, I finally agreed. That one committee led to wanting to help and do more. Soon I was creating a new website for the chapter and helping to start up some youth awards again that hadn't been offered by our chapter for years. The next thing I knew they were calling me asking if I would step into the role of Historian for the chapter as the current officer had resigned. I honestly didn't think I had the time to do it as I have small children at home and a full time job. After some convincing, I finally agreed. One position, led to another and now I am the chapter's Vice Regent. I was just formally nominated to take on the role of Regent for the next two year term. That's not all DAR I have gotten involved in. Those wonderful people who helped my mom and I get through the difficult application process inspired me to learn more about that process. Now I work on a special team that helps new, interested members fill out their applications correctly. I have been asked to be a Vice Chair of a state committee, which is a true honor as I didn't think anyone in the state even knew who I was. I have slowly been building a name for myself within the organization as I learn about all I can do and all the ways I can help. That's not all DAR has brought to my life. The best part is the people and the friendships that have developed over these four short years. I consider my DAR 'sisters' to be such an important part of my life now. I am proud to be part of this wonderful organization, especially with my mom by my side. I cannot wait for the day when my own daughter is old enough to join DAR and learn about the wonderful ways that she can help and grow within the organization. As I look to the future I am pleased and excited to know that I will take on such a valuable role within my own chapter for the next two years as I step into the leadership role of Regent. I look forward to being able to attend my first state conference this Spring (either in person or virtually) and learning and growing more within this organization.
