Announcing a New Direction for the SMPS Chapter Awards Programs
In the coming year, we will have some changes to our chapter awards program, Striving for Excellence and Pivot & Focus.
The purpose of the new direction is to provide more visibility to all chapters and showcase best practices in chapter management and leadership. This will allow all 58 chapters to compete equally within their chapter size category.
How is it different? Currently, the Striving for Excellence program allows individual chapters to enter on their own. With the new program, SMPS HQ will recognize chapters throughout the year without individual chapters submitting information or entering the awards.
Chapters will be honored and highlighted based on the 2020–21 chapter annual report data provided to SMPS HQ. All 58 chapters will be included in the evaluation based on the following criteria for the 2020-21 fiscal year:
- Membership Retention and Growth (announcing winners in February 2022)
- Educational and Programming events (announcing winners in April 2022)
- Financial Health (announcing winners in June 2022)
The chapters that have the best performance in those categories and on their chapter size (per chapter stats as of 9/1/2021) will receive a badge they can use on their website. They’ll also be featured via:
- Chapter Leader Newsletter
- Marketer journal
- Marketer QuickLook
- SMPS HQ social media channels
After this year’s transition period for honoring 2020-21 performances, the program is expected to take its full shape for honoring the current fiscal year. HQ will provide further updates as the program evolves and is finalized.
If you have questions, please reach out to Molly Dall’Erta, Director of Member Recognition and Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
