Carol Doane elected regional vice-president of national Doane association

Carol Doane to serve as Regional Vice-President of national association.

Carol Doane, of Vancouver, Washington was elected Regional Vice-President of The Doane Family Association of America, Inc. with oversight over three states Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The 965 member nonprofit, with members on three continents, was organized to create interest in the history and welfare of the descendants of English born Deacon John Doane.

The election was held the end of July during the association’s national session in Plymouth Massachusetts, a historic site for the Doane Family. In 1630 family founder Deacon John Doane landed in Plymouth to join Miles Standish and other pilgrims in the pursuit of new opportunities. Deacon John Doane became one of the principal men in the affairs of the Plymouth Colony.

The national association also manages the family’s foundation which funds college scholarships for descendants of Deacon John Doane. Scholarships are also available for students attending Doane College in Crete, Nebraska – one of the top 50 Midwestern colleges as ranked by Forbes.com.

“Education is highly valued by the Doane family,” said Carol Doane, a cum laude graduate of Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon. “In the Midwest and Eastern United States Doanes have built colleges, college libraries, administration buildings and funded countless college educations. I’d like to see that same spirit on the West Coast.”

Carol Doane has had leadership roles in two media companies, and is currently a business and social media consultant. She was featured in a short documentary by Chris Martin Studios as a 2012 Innovator of Vancouver, and was a 2010 top finalist in the Pacific Northwest Social Media Awards (SoMe) for a campaign she created and implemented for Southwest Washington nonprofit.

The Doane Family Association of America, Inc. has met biennially for the past 104 years. It welcomes those with surnames of Doane, Doan, Done, Donne, variations thereof, their spouses and descendants – as well as anyone interested in the family’s history which encompasses the notorious Doan Outlaws of Bucks County Pennsylvania which were featured on a segment of PBS’s History Detectives.

The next national reunion, which will feature historic tours, research and history presentations, will be held July 2014 in Michigan. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend.

“Oregon (ORR-ə-gən) is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located on the Pacific coast, with Washington to the north, California to the south, Nevada on the southeast and Idaho to the east.

“The Columbia and Snake rivers delineate much of Oregon’s northern and eastern boundaries, respectively. The area was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before the arrival of traders, explorers, and settlers who formed an autonomous government in Oregon Country in 1843. The Oregon Territory was created in 1848, and Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859.” ~ Wikipedia

We would love to have you join our chapter of the Doane Family Association of America, Inc. Most of our meetings and reunions occur in Southwest Washington and Northern Oregon. If you are interested in starting a Doane chapter perhaps closer to where you live in Oregon, here is what will help you get started:

Have an active interest in the descendants of Deacon John Doane and the Doane Family Association of Amercia, Inc.

Be willing to organize a chapter reunion once a year.

Be willing to follow the regional bylaws and seek advice from the regional vice-president should you desire to update, change or alter your bylaws.

Be committed to sending an annual report of your chapter activities to the regional vice-president.

Be willing to collect dues to pay for services to advance the chapter and help promote chapter activities.

Consider preparing a short history of your branch of the Doane Family, sharing it with your chapter members and sending it to the regional website so we can help promote your chapter

Consider attending a national reunion at some time in your life.

It’s our hope that we can partner with those who enjoy family, tracing their own history and meeting others with like interests. The association is full of dedicated people across the U.S., in England and Austrailia who are genealogy enthusiasts, first class history dectectives, love to travel, value education, and are very interested in the descendants of Deacon John Doane.

We are glad to provide you with information, expertise and encouragement while starting your own chapter. Email us for more information doanefamilyassociation@gmail.com.
