Here is your opportunity to participate in the Chapter Activities Recognition Awards (CARA) program in 2018. Maybe you are considering participation for the first time! In any case, please utilize this useful tool. This voluntary program allows your chapter board to perform a monthly check on the wellness and activities of your chapter. You have the opportunity to evaluate your progress toward your goals as defined in your chapter mission and vision statements. Click HERE and you will clearly see how it can be used as a tool to track all the great things your chapter is doing. If nothing else, ask someone in your chapter to be your CARA Coordinator and hit the ground running in 2018.
Of course, this program is run in the spirit of friendly competition, as chapters of like size try to garner points in major areas of chapter health, such as Membership, Activities, Leadership, Music Education and Communications. Winners from each plateau receive recognition at the spring convention House of Delegates meeting, and winning chapters have their tuition paid for the next Rocky Mountain Leadership Academy.
