Unit President's Annual Communication and Goals for Units of Distinction

The Units of Distinction awards will be presented during the Awards Banquet at Convention each year. Please submit this form by May 15th to ensure that your unit is included in the presentation. 

19 to 20 goals = Highest Distinction       16 to 18 goals = Distinction

For 2020-21 units of highest distinction will have reached 17-18 goals, and units of distinction will have reached 14-16 goals. We have decided to lower this from 19-21 and 16-18 because questions 3-6 under membership, 7 under activities, and 3-4 under communication would have been difficult if not impossible to have completed for the 2020-21 year.
