The Dallas Advisory Board met on September 11,1990 and approved a motion to extend their work through the formation of a Women's Auxiliary. Margot Perot focused on this vision and called a few friends together to brainstorm on the creation of the Dallas Women's Auxiliary. Eventhough the process took several months, charter members recruited others and the membership more than doubled by the first meeting on February 5, 1991. The Charter was presented to The Salvation Army Representative, Major Esther Morrow, where Joanie Slaughter was installed as President.
