Awarded at: Fall Conference
Recognizes a current Officer or Board Member for chapter contributions. Chapter officers and board members are the paramount leaders of our chapter and the shapers of chapter vision and activity. They contribute substantial time, effort and in some cases, personal expense, to support and oversee the administration of the chapter and its activities. A few distinguish themselves by attending all the meetings with remarkable enthusiasm; engage constantly in the discussions; and contribute substantial wisdom and creative ideas to address various chapter challenges. Presidents owe their success in part to not only those who show up for the job, but especially to those officers and board members who contribute in distinct and valuable ways.
