The Mark of Distinction Program offers multiple recognition opportunities for chapters of all sizes. There are two entry sections – Membership Building and Special Focus Areas, as well as two categories within them based on current membership percentages. Chapters can enter one or all of the Special Focus Areas as well as Membership Building, and have an opportunity to receive numerous recognition incentives, from discounts on Seminar registrations, to PR Power Hours, professional memberships, and other offerings. Recognized chapters will be able to use the special “mark of distinction” (shown above) on their websites and chapter newsletters and stationery. Entry Form
