    Chapter of the Year (COTY)

    The Chapter of the Year Award has four membership size categories and is presented to the chapter that has most effectively demonstrated its support and promotion of ARMA International's objectives through its programs and activities.  The chapter is judged for its submission in the areas of chapter characteristics, educationa/professional development, projects, pulic relations, chapter maintenance and outside activites.  

    Chapter Newsletter Of The Year Award

    The chapter newsletter is the basic medium of communication embracing the transfer of information throughout and beyond Association membership. A chapter newsletter should be a publication that recipients look forward to receiving, that is satisfying to read, and leaves the readers with a sense that they are privy to an information source as a benefit of belonging to the Association. The chapter’s newsletter should be seen as a vehicle to educate the membership.  It is judged on quality and relevance of material, originality of information, quality of presentation, quantity of material and frequency of publication. 

    Chapter Innovation Award

    This award recognizes a chapter that has taken an innovative approach to enhance an area of its operations or programs. For example, this might be awarded for an innovative way a chapter has increased membership, increased participation on the board, meeting, or project, or gotten a high quality speaker with limited to no funding.

    Special Project Award

    The purpose of the Service Project Award is to establish an annual award for the best RIM-focused service project completed by a region, chapter, or individual. This award is presented to the region, chapter, or individual that most effectively conducted a service project and advanced the public’s awareness of records and information management. This award is open to all ARMA-chartered regions, chapters, or individual members.
