Administrative Guide

Chapters

Grand Chapter has created the "Black and Gold Award" to encourage each chapter to develop projects and programs considered creative, and which serve as an example for all other local chapters to follow.

The award will be presented to any chapter for single achievements or events considered exceptional and possible only through extensive planning, organization and participation by a significant number of the chapter’s members.

Grand Chapter may confer this award to any local chapter provided that consideration is restricted to single events only. Determination will be based on the information submitted on the "Black and Gold Award" application form (see following page) with emphasis on any accompanying supporting data. There shall be no limit on the number of "Black and Gold Awards" granted by the Grand Chapter in any single year or to any individual chapter.

The Grand Chapter will complete the final decision, on an application for the award, within eight (8) weeks of receipt of the application. In the event that a chapter has won the award, the Grand Chapter will communicate such to that particular school’s Dean, Business School Dean, and to the national insurance publications. Presentation of the actual, physical award will be made at the next following Annual Management Conference.
