YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!
You might not know but the club is run entirely by volunteers and we need your help to take the club forward and to become even more successful.
DO YOU EVER ASK YOURSELF:
- What do I do for DAC?
- Can I give anything back to the club?
- What do I know about how the club functions?
- What do I know about the Club finances?
- What are the Club plans for the future?
Now is your chance to do something about it! How?
