While the C.A.R. is an organization of youth and for youth, adult leadership is essential. The work of the C.A.R. can progress only so far as there is adult leadership available and willing to put in the time and effort. These adult leaders in the C.A.R. are called "Seniors".
Traditionally the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has provided the bulk of the adult leadership for the C.A.R. There are also opportunities for others from the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and Sons of the Revolution (S.R.) and even others who are not members of any of these organizations.* Often C.A.R. members have parents or adult relatives who are not DAR or SAR and they are welcome to become involved.
Anyone who would like to become involved who is not in contact with a local C.A.R. society should contact the Senior State President at SSP@WaStateCAR.org for more information. One of the major duties of the Senior State President is to provide training and help to other senior leaders.
*On the state and local society level, only the offices of Senior President and Senior First Vice President require membership in either the DAR, SAR or S.R.
