SSCS Outstanding Chapter Award

Presented annually to a chapter that has consistently shown outstanding leadership and initiative in organizing activities, the SSCS Outstanding Chapter Award is based on programs from 1 July in a given year to 30 June of the following year and is presented during the ISSCC.  The award consists of a check for $1,000, to be used for chapter activities, and a Certificate of Recognition. For application information, please click here

The selection of the "Outstanding Chapter Award," managed by the SSCS Chapters Committee, is based on:

  • the quality and quantity of activities and programs sponsored by the chapter
  • the accrual of practical benefits for local chapter members
  • demonstrations of successful outreach programs to the professional community
  • growth of chapter membership


A chapter is eligible to be considered for the Outstanding Chapter Award once every three years, excluding the year in which it last was chosen for this distinction. So a group that was deemed best in 2012 would be eligible for reconsideration in 2016.

One award is granted each year, although the Chapters Steering Committee may recommend two awards in an exceptional year or forgo the presentation of an award if no qualified candidate is available.

Nominations for the Outstanding Chapter Award can be made by any SSCS AdCom or Chapters Steering Committee member, following the How To Apply instructions on this website.

The Chapters Steering Committee reviews and rank-orders all nominations based on the criteria above.
