The South Dakota State Society is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization designed to provide a social and professional network for South Dakotans, their friends and their families living, working and attending school in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. We were formed in 1954 as an opportunity for native and adopted South Dakotans in the greater Washington metropolitan area to share their common bond and the spirit of our great State.  Although it had been inactive since 1982, the group was revived in 2008 and has become a beacon for South Dakotans living in Washington.

The South Dakota State Society is open to anyone who has lived, worked or studied in South Dakota, and anyone who holds the State near and dear to your heart.

Please spread the word and invite others to be a part of the South Dakota State Society.
