Has your local chapter held excellent meetings, been involved it the community, established communication outlets with its members and/or worked with the National LERA to increase awareness of your local programs and members? If so, then nominate your chapter for a 2010 LERA Chapter award.
Awards to be handed out at the 2011 LERA Annual Meeting in Denver include:
The Chapter Merit Awards presented to chapters that meet the criteria in one or more of the following categories during a chapter year:
The Outstanding Chapter Award, presented to chapters that receive at least 4 of the 8 merit awards in 5 consecutive years
The Chapter Star Award, presented to chapters that receive at least 6 of the 8 merit awards in 5 consecutive years, and thereafter, they may accrue merit awards again starting at zero.
Refer to the Chapter Award Nomination Form, complete and return to the LERA Office by October 15, 2010. Chapters may self-nominate OR be nominated by another chapter, NCAC committee through outreach discussion with chapters, or by LERA staff. Each Merit Award category need not be awarded each year. There may be multiple awards given in a category.
