The 2021 Outstanding Chapter Awards program (apply below) provides IIBEC-affiliated chapters with recognition at the annual convention and publicity in IIBEC Interface. It serves as a road map for annual operations and bylaw requirements and as an archival record of chapter activity. It also aids chapter leaders during their annual transition meeting by providing documentation on the chapter’s goals, objectives, and achievements. The IIBEC Chapter Development Committee continues to refine and enhance the awards program.
