Region 5 had five chapters that qualified for Chapter Outstanding Performance Award (COPA); Capitol, Chicago, Northeast Wisconsin, St Louis and Twin City. These Chapters demonstrated performance in all six areas being evaluated: Association support, Region support, support of future generations, local community involvement, business community involvement, and efforts in developing their chapter. The selection this year was challenging because several of them demonstrated excellence in all six areas.
This year’s Region Outstanding Chapter Award (ROCA) recipient is Twin City. Some of the 2013 accomplishments that made them stand out are:
The number of members participating in Association and Region boards, committees and meetings.
The number of visits to student and other professional chapter meetings and events.
The contributions to association web site and publications.
Hosting the Fall Region Conference, Region Board Meeting and Leadership Workshop.
Support for, and involvement with, student chapters and education organizations.
Involvement in many community and business activities and events.
The professional development activities for their professional and student members offered by the chapter and in cooperation with Illinois State University.
Congratulations to 2013 Twin City Chapter President John Haushalter, Sue Braun who documented the accomplishments, the Board of Directors and the entire chapter membership.
The Twin City Chapter now joins the other Region ROCA winners to compete for the Association Outstanding Chapter Award (AOCA) to be awarded later this year.
The selection committee consisted of Bill Riter (West Michigan Chapter), Nick Sondelski(Wisconsin River Valley Chapter) and Dick Boenisch (Sheboygan Chapter - chairman).
