Ohio Society and Chapters Receive National Recognition – Louisville


Each year chapters and state societies are requested to complete an annual activity report and submit it to the national society.  Several years ago the report was formatted in excel and submitted electronically.

Known as the Americanism / President General Streamer form, it has been challenge to many chapters to complete. The state societies’ report is a summation of the local chapters plus their awards list.

The program runs on a calendar year and is due to National at the time of Spring Leadership, generally around March 1st.  For the 2013 contest there were twelve Ohio Chapters that submitted.  Awards were delayed at the National Congress in July, however, the results were posted in late October on the national website.
