Chapter Recognition Awards

The ACR Chapter Recognition Program was created in 2003 with the following goals:

  • To formally recognize chapter successes and innovative ideas
  • To facilitate the sharing of ideas among chapters, thus encouraging and supporting the activity of all chapters

Chapters submit award forms for the activities or initiatives they engage in between January and December of the award year. Submissions are made in four categories: Government Relations, Meetings & Education, Membership, and Quality & Safety.

In addition, the Overall Excellence Award honors chapters who have demonstrated excellence in every award category.

The submission deadline is January 17 for the preceding award year.
