2016 CHAPTER OF EXCELLENCE
The Chapter of Excellence program defines outstanding chapter performance by outlining the standards of practice for optimal chapter operation. Chapters achieve these awards by demonstrating performance in the key areas of chapter operations and attaining specific growth and development benchmarks.
Advice given by Candice Krill, Illinois Chapter President, "Send in the required documents early so everything can be double checked. Review the Quick Checklist in the Chapter Manual often and anticipate what will be due in the next quarter. The heavy lift for document submission is in February so involve the entire Board of Directors so there are many eys on the checklist and the list of documents."
