Frequently Asked Questions
What is ADC's Mission Statement?
Our mission statement is to be Women dedicated to North American land and wildlife conservation efforts, while inspiring fellow women and young girls to expand their knowledge of the outdoor sporting world.
What is ADC’s long-term goal?
Our long-term goal is to purchase land across the US for conservation purposes and member utilization. This goal is funded by our members’ annual dues. Each member contributes $40 annually and those funds are allocated solely for this purpose. It was decided by ADC Leadership that when our Land Purchase Fund reaches $100,000.00, we will begin our search for the organization’s first piece of property.
While working toward land purchase, what are the immediate ADC goals?
Our current focus is on Outdoor Education for Women and Young Ladies. ADC Leadership works to plan events that provide Members with the opportunity to learn, improve, or share their knowledge of various skills throughout the year. As their knowledge of the Outdoors grows so does their commitment to conservation. ADC frequently collaborates with our local DNRs and other organizations to assist with conservation efforts in our local areas.
Does ADC have its 501(C)3 non-profit status? What does that mean?
Yes. ADC was awarded its 501(c)3 status by the IRS in January 2017. This means we are a tax-exempt non-profit organization. Funds raised by our organization are done so for the benefit our mission and not for the benefit of a private shareholder or individual(s). This also means that donations made to our organization are tax deductible.
Does the organization have employees?
No. Not even one. ADC is staffed by volunteers, meaning no one in a Leadership position is paid or reimbursed for the time and effort they put into our organization.
Is ADC a hunting club?
Hunting and Fishing are common interests shared by many of our members. ADC makes it a point to let our Leaders and other members plan and host all kinds of events, including hunting and fishing trips, but ADC is NOT a hunting club. Our members take it upon themselves to plan and pay for their own participation in these events.
What is the current size of the organization?
ADC currently has over 500 active members across the United States.
Who makes up the ADC Leadership Team?
ADC’s Leadership Team is made up of 7 National Board Members and Leadership Team members from our State Chapters. More information on our Leaders can be found here.
There isn’t a local chapter in my state, how is one started?
A state is officially declared a “Chapter” when it has 10 or more members join the national organization. At that time the National Board will appoint a State President to assist with the organizing local events.
