Chapter of the Year Award
The annual Chapter of the Year Award is an esteemed recognition celebrating the excellence of AOCPMR Student Chapters. Throughout the year, we will be accepting event submissions from our chapter affiliates and establishing a leaderboard.  Submissions that are held in person should include media attachments. We strongly urge chapters to establish a robust social media presence and tag AOCPMR in their event posts. In the Spring before the AOCPMR Mid-Year Meeting, we will tally the points earned by each chapter and honor the most active and impactful clubs.
 
The winner of the award will receive $700, while a runner-up will receive $300. Additionally, both winners will be acknowledged at the MYM Murray Klein dinner.
 
Submissions between April 8, 2024 – March 15, 2025 will be accepted. Chapters must be registered with AOCPMR to be considered.
