The STC Rocky Mountain Chapter has earned a Community of Excellence award for 2009-2010 in the STC Geographic Community Achievement Award (CAA) competition. Our chapter was bestowed this award by the STC Community Achievement Award Evaluation Committee (CAAEC) “for developing plans for an improved Web site, using new technologies to communicate with members, and thinking creatively about meeting formats and venues.”
In the award notification, CAAEC representative Karen Lane added, “As one of the most consistent and active communities in the CAA process, your community had another year filled with many activities. The CAAEC hopes that your community will continue to aspire to a high level with a set of impressive initiatives and activities next year.”
The Community Achievement Award is an annual competition open to all STC geographic chapters, and covers an evaluation period of March 1, 2009, through February 28, 2010. Chapters that apply for the award in one of three categories (Merit, Excellence, and Distinction) must satisfy specific requirements for each level, which include chapter initiatives, fundamental activities, and a cumulative series of achievements.
Our community will be recognized at the Leadership Day event on May 2, 2010, at the STC Summit in Dallas. Congratulations to all members of the STC RMC!
