One of the biggest highlights of the ceremony is being recognized by the platform party when your name is read aloud as you walk across the stage. The Name Card provides your name information for individual recognition. We will use the information provided on the RSVP form to create your Name Card, which will be given to you when you arrive at the DCP Recognition Ceremony.
