Chapter of the Year Awards

AISES’ goal is to assist chapters in building and strengthening chapters to meet the AISES Mission and to encourage chapters to increase membership, build on current strengths and develop leadership among chapter members.  The chapter awards program allows chapters to identify their strengths and compete for Category Awards.  The Category Awards were determined based on past submitted AISES Chapter Reports and previous years’ Chapter of the Year Applications. 

Chapters in good standing are eligible to participate in the Chapter Awards Program.  Chapters may apply to no more than two (2) Award Categories.  The Award Categories are:

  • Recruitment/Retention
  • Fundraising/Marketing
  • Outreach & Community Service
  • Professional & Chapter Development

Chapters are eligible to win in both categories they are applying for.

Deadline: August 1, 2017

Advisor of the Year Award

Why do Chapters need Advisors?  Because while students have the drive, desire and talent to make a successful chapter, the Advisor brings wisdom, experience, advice, and an understanding of accepted protocols and procedures to complement the student’s talents.  This partnership creates an environment from which a successful chapter is formed and sustained.

AISES’ Chapter Advisors serve in one of the most varied and challenging roles within the entire AISES organization.  Not only are they ‘ambassadors’ of the organization to external organizations, but are also advocates of their Chapter within the College/University structure, Liaison to the National AISES office, and also serve directly to their chapter members as academic advisors, resources to the services available from the college/university, spokespeople to college/university administrators, and in a host of other roles depending on the individual Advisor.

Deadline: August 1, 2017
