We believe in the importance of recognizing outstanding chapters who perform and engage with their communities at a high level. We commend your efforts and dedication to the profession. NIGP would like to encourage more chapters to showcase their professionalism and development opportunities.
That is why we are excited to announce a new two-layered approach to recognizing the accomplishments of our chapters:
1. NEW - Chapter Performance Standards Seal
NIGP has developed a ‘standard’ in which chapters can strive to follow and advance the opportunities offered to their members. Once a chapter successfully meets the standard, a digital seal is issued which the chapter can prominently display to their membership on their website and social media outlets
2. Outstanding Chapter Awards
This new award offered in four categories for the pursuit of excellence in practices and innovations; Chapter Operations, Chapter Membership, Chapter Advocacy and Outreach, and Chapter Professional Development. The purpose of the Outstanding Chapter Awards is to recognize outstanding Chapter practices with the intent of sharing knowledge about them. This recognition is competitive and one application in each category will be recognized at Forum. All applications in this area will be made available to other chapters in a new best practices library as we push the standards of practice for NIGP Chapters forward.
