The purpose of this study was to provide a Future Homemakers of America (hereafter referred to as FHA) handbook for South Dakota which would assist officers, and advisers in carrying out chapter, state, and national association responsibilities. The South Dakota Association of FHA is an organization affiliated with the national association. All information from the national office is channeled to the state FHA adviser, who in turn uses the material as a method of communication with the region and local chapters. Before this study, all communiques sent by the state FHA adviser were in the form of loose sheets. Upon receiving the loose sheets, local chapters used their own method of organizing and filing the material for later use. In that the author developed a real interest in FHA as the result of having been a chapter adviser for four years, Suite Chapter Adviser for one year and having been adviser to a state officer, she realized the need for organizing all FHA material for the local chapter.
