Awards & Recognition Program Overview

 

INTRODUCTION

The ARMA International Awards and Recognition Program is designed to recognized members, chapters, and regions for their activities and support of the association and profession. The following outlines each of the awards available and its criteria. The administration of the Awards and Recognition Program is vested in the association staff, while the evaluation and judging of each award is overseen by the Awards Task Force.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The following items outline the general areas that the Awards and Recognition Program covers.

CHAPTER CATEGORIES

The following will be awarded to a chapter in each of the chapter categories:

  • Chapter Innovation Award
  • Chapter Newsletter of the Year
  • Chapter Website of the Year
  • Chapter of the Year
  • Chapter Participation Award

A chapter’s size category is determined by its membership figures for June 30 of the year prior to the year being judged. There are four size categories:

CATEGORY NUMBER OF MEMBERS
