July 2014 Survey

At our July Jubilee, we handed out a survey. We want to hear from our membership about what topics you would like to hear about at our monthly membership meetings.

If you missed the meeting, but would like your voice to be heard, please click on the attached survey, print it out, and mail it to the DAPS office (6370 LBJ Freeway, Suite 176, Dallas, TX 75240-6400). You can also fax it to 888-710-9536, or just bring it to the September 8 meeting. Thank you!
