Pinnacle Awards

The Pinnacle program was established in 2005, and updated in 2018, to recognize Sections and Divisions which successfully create and deliver member value during the year. There are five (5) award categories:

Each Chapter may achieve each award one time during a calendar year. Activity submissions are reviewed, and awards are presented, quarterly. The deadline for submitting for each quarter is as follows: January 15, April 15, July 15 and October 15 each year. 


The criteria and application form for each of the five awards can be found using the links above.

Applicants use the online form to submit proof of activities which qualify for award recognition.

Achieving an award requires performing multiple activities, however only one (1) activity can be submitted at a time. Submit additional activities by completing the form multiple times. Activities need not all be submitted at the same time. All submissions will be compiled for the judges’ quarterly review.

Supporting evidence is required, including things like description of an activity, rosters of attendees, photos, revenue generated, screen captures, internet links or anything which will assist in the judges’ review. All materials must be submitted electronically using the form provided.
