Brand new website, brand new rules…when it comes to nominating your Chapter for awards that is!
The waiting game is over. Usually, you would nominate your Chapter for an award when you turned in your Form 110. NOW you can nominate your Chapter any day of the school year!
Did you just finish up an event? Did it go really well? While it is fresh in your mind, nominate it! All you have to do is fill out the form for the award you want to nominate your Chapter for… and it’s in the running! Then just attend National Convention and wait to see if your Chapter won!
Remember to add a picture of your event at the bottom of the form so that your Chapter can be featured in the fall edition of The Purple & Gold.
NOTE: You must finish the form once you start or you will have to fill it out all over again.
Here are the awards you can enter your Chapter to win:
The C.H. McClure Single Service Award is presented to a Collegiate Chapter for an outstanding service project. Each Chapter may choose an exemplary service project that it has successfully completed during the past year.
The Josh and Britt Marder Excellence in National Philanthropy Award is presented to a Collegiate Chapter for an outstanding National Philanthropy service project. Each Chapter may choose an exemplary service project that it has successfully completed during the past year and write a detailed summary of the project. It is important to note that this award is intended to recognize an outstanding National Philanthropy service project whether it directly benefits the National Philanthropy or coincides with the spirit and purpose of the National Philanthropy.
The Charles W. Chance Excellence in Alumni Relations Award is presented to the chapter that excels in Alumni relations based upon such areas as sound communication, financial support and Alumni participation in Chapter events.
The Jeffrey L. Johnson National Interchapter Fellowship Award has been established so that Chapters and individuals that have exhibited outstanding examples of fellowship towards and with other Chapters may be recognized and honored. Chapters and individuals may only be nominated by the official vote and recognition of fellow Chapters and/or National Council. Though up to two awards may be given each year, an award does not have to be bestowed every year. By this means, the National Council and the nominating Chapters are charged with honoring only the most deserving.
The Dr. Eldo L. Hendricks Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Programming has been established to recognize Chapters that have provided exceptional education, cultural and leadership programs benefiting their Members and the community in which they live. Up to three awards may be given each year, but an award does not have to be presented every year.
The Claude A. Phillips Excellence in Fellowship Award is presented to a Collegiate Chapter for an outstanding fellowship event. Each Chapter may choose an exemplary fellowship event that they have successfully completed during the past year and write a detailed summary of the project.
The Most Outstanding Alumni Chapter is presented to Alumni Chapters to recognize overall achievements in their promotion to fellowship, leadership and scholarship in their activities. Each Chapter may submit a nomination to highlight its involvement in maintaining scholarship, leadership and fellowship involvement.
