Meetings and Events
Each Dismas Club meets twice a month and has one annual general meeting a year. There will also be an annual national convention of Dismas Clubs that members can attend. Each club will decide on what fundraising, social and community events they will host, sponsor or attend. All clubs are encouraged to have a social and community building aspect to their club.
Dismas Clubs are a group of individuals that have struggled in life, coming together as volunteers in service to help those in the world that are hurting and feel helpless.
Dismas Clubs identify needs in the community and work together to bring about a solution to those needs.
