Bea Fischer has been a member of the Colonel William Candler Chapter of the NSDAR since 1984 and is a DAR Life Member. Over 300 people attended a tea held in late July to celebrate her achievement as the incoming State Regent.<br />
"I think I can honestly speak for all members of our Chapter and say that everyone feels that Bea is a friend and we couldn't be more pleased to have her as our State Regent," said Christine Lanzing, Regent for the Col. William Candler chapter. "The exceptionally large turnout at the Tea attests to her statewide popularity."<br />
Prior to being elected for State Regent, she served the chapter as Treasures, Resistrar, First Vice Regent and Regent for the chapter. On the state level, Fischer has served as Chairman of DAR Schools and Literacy Challenge, State Speakers Staff, Northeast District Director, State Treasurer, State Second Vice-Regent and State First Vice-Regent. Fischer is also a charter member of the Sustaining Supporter Program.<br />
