Should Your Chapter Start It's Own Awards ProgramEdit
The short answer is, of course: yes. Take a look and borrow from the O.G.R.E.s-wife Awards program and alter it to your chapter. Awards likes Best Chapter Member, Most Recruited Members, Best Host and the like can really make your members feel appreciated.
We’ve decided to take a different stab at this whole monthly newsletter thing. Beginning this month, we’ll be focusing each issue on different subjects or themes. We’re hoping this will help all members get a better grasp on different programs and events.
This month we’ll be focusing on Awards. These include the official membership Awards Program offered by O.G.R.E.s, the member-driven industry awards The OGGIEs, the Ogswald Academy Awards, and the optional chapter awards.
As we delve into this fun and literally rewarding subject we just want you to keep in mind that all the awards program need member participation in order to be successful. If your chapter’s CC or SGM are not keeping in touch with the Board, then we have no idea who deserves recognition! It is extremely important for officers to let us know how things are going, but keep in mind that any active member can nominate another member for an award: so you can help!
These awards may be a small fun side-effect of membership to you, but keep in mind that it could really make someone’s day to know that another Ogre noticed them and acknowledged something special about them. In addition, it is another recruitment tool for new members, knowing they have the possibility of the fun awards program to look forward to.
Anyways, I won’t keep you any longer. Study up on the myriad Awards available, and start nominating!
