It is time to begin gathering materials for two important community awards: the Community Achievement Award and the Community Pacesetter Award. Be sure to take some time to fill out each application so STC members can see how your community shines. Also, look for an upcoming webinar from the Community Affairs Committee later this year on the award applications and processes. Note that communities may apply for both awards.
Community Achievement Award
The Community Achievement Award (CAA) recognizes a SIG or a professional or student chapter’s outstanding accomplishments in achieving the Society’s goals through a wide range of programs and activities. All communities are encouraged to apply. The CAA process determines the prestigious Community of the Year award. Nominations are due 28 January 2019.

Community Pacesetter Award
STC’s Community Pacesetter Award recognizes innovative and successful community initiatives. Unlike STC’s other Community Achievement awards, which recognize communities for consistent strength in many varied activities, the Pacesetter Award recognizes the successful implementation of a single beneficial innovation that may be implemented by other STC communities. Applications are due 25 February 2019.
