Region 5 is proud to announce that Eastern Illinois University is the 2010-2011 Region 5 Outstanding Student Chapter of the Year.

Eastern Illinois University was involved in a number of activities at the local, regional and association level. Some of these activities include:

  • Members gave presentations and conducted workshops at their school and local area.
  • Several members gave presentations to their own chapter.
  • Members gave a presentation at the Springfield professional chapter several miles away.
  • The chapter received local newspaper coverage of events.
  • They utilized their web site and kept information well up to date.
  • They had excellent turnout at chapter events.
  • Eastern Illinois University sent a team of 5 to the 2011 National Collegiate Conference (NCC).

These activities resulted in continued growth in the membership of the student chapter.

Region 5 congratulates Eastern Illinois University, 2011-12 Student Chapter President Donovan Kay and Faculty Advisor Vicki Hampton on a job very well done! This is their second consecutive Region Outstanding Student Chapter award. Eastern Illinois University is sponsored by the Capitol Chapter.
