The purpose of the Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) is to recognize and reward those FPA chapters that have taken the initiative to better serve not only the members of their chapters, but also the public in general. Innovation, chapter involvement, measurable results and application to other chapters are key criteria. The selection committee is looking for both process improvements and “game changers” to award and recognize.
The review period refers to the period of time during which your chapter’s programs or events must have taken place in order to be considered for an Outstanding Achievement Award. This year the review period is January 1-December 31, 2016. Please be sure your submission includes activities that happened only during that timeframe.
Outstanding Achievement Award applications should provide a picture of the chapter’s activities leading to extraordinary achievement in any or all of the areas below. The application should include an explanation of why your chapter’s achievement is exceptional. Describe each of the following: quantifiable goals and results, member involvement in the success of the effort, what the chapter is doing to ensure the effort will be ongoing, how the program supports FPA’s mission and how the effort can be duplicated by other chapters.
