ECD Chapter Excellence Logo

One of the most important roles of the district is to share and recognize best practices among chapters. Ten years ago, the East Central District revived an extinct national program to do just that. The Chapter Excellence Award was organized to recognize large and small chapters in four categories: 

  • Chapter Management
  • Membership Development
  • Professional Development
  • Chapter Outreach

The Akron Area PRSA Chapter has been the recipient of many East Central District "Excellence Awards" during the past few years for its hard work, including: 

  • Akron Area Chapter - Chapter Management - 2009
  • Akron Area Chapter - Professional Development - 2009
  • Akron Area Chapter - Chapter Management - 2011 (Pro Bono Day) 
  • Akron Area Chapter - Chapter Management - 2012 (Sponsorship)
