Yearbooks: Round out that roster

In addition to membership and basic contact information, you might consider other listings to make your roster more user friendly. Email addresses and birthdates are basic extras that are optional. Birthdays are great for a card, but should not include the year – a lady shouldn’t be expected to tell her age.

Yearbooks: Roll on…

Yearbooks should contain a chapter roster with at least the names, postal addresses, and contact telephone number of each member.

Yearbooks: Chart It

Yearbooks should reflect what you’ve done over the year. Because of this, information on your meeting dates, hostesses of meetings, programs and speakers should be included. These can be on a graphic calender, or in a meeting section.

Yearbooks: Order, order, order

What’s a meeting without order? Not anything I’d enjoy-if there is work to do. Every effective meeting has some sort of Order of Business. Yearbooks should include these listings.

Yearbooks: Officers

All officers need to be included. They should be listed in order by General, Division, and Chapter. Don’t forget their address information. Basic lists will not qualify for full judging points.

Yearbooks: Ritual

Yearbooks should include your opening ritual. Don’t forget to include the Pledge of Allegiance, Salute to the Confederate Flag, Salute to your state flag, in addition to the ritual script.

Yearbooks: Title track #2

Yesterday’s blog entry listed several things needed for your Yearbook title page to achieve full point potential. Don’t forget the motto (Think, Love, Pray, Dare, Live), your Chapter location, the current year, and date of organization.

Yearbooks: Title track #1

For full point potential, be sure to list your chapter and division, the organization (United Daughters of the Confederacy), UDC colors, as well as other items posted in the General guidelines and blogged here tomorrow.

Yearbooks: Got it covered?

If UDC insignia used (Oklahoma insignia does not count toward points), must be at top of cover (with no printing above). Must include –

  1. Chapter
  2. number
  3. United Daughters of the Confederacy
  4. location

current year is an optional item

Never forget…

When celebrating occasions, be sure to include your Confederate calender! This month, Oklahoma would like to remind the world of the following commemorations:

Commodore Matthew Fontaine Maury – January 14 birth date

Commander-In-Chief Robert E. Lee – January 19 birth date

General Thomas Jonathan (Stonewall) Jackson – January 21birth date

We look forward to the Confederate Memorial day – April 25 this year.

Oklahoma Division honors 10 total days of observance annually.
