Chapters around the World Earn Outstanding, Quality Chapter Awards

Each year at the Leadership Conference, the Chapter Relations Council recognizes local chapters that have met the requirements to be an outstanding or quality chapter.  There is no limit to how many chapters can receive each type of award, and all chapters are encouraged to meet the requirements for becoming an outstanding chapter. Outstanding and quality chapter designation is valid for one year and must be earned on an annual basis.

This year, the chapters below were honored with the Outstanding Chapter and Quality Chapter awards. We hope to see this list grow next year with more of our 209 chapters across the world!

Reuben Clark Law Society Annual Fireside. The application form for the Quality Chapter Award must be submitted to the corresponding Area Director by July 1st of each year and can be found at http://jrcls.org/forms/committees/chapter_relations/quality_award.pdf

Outstanding Chapters earn their designation by meeting the requirements of a quality chapter as well as by providing community service, posting chapter events regularly on jrcls.org, holding four or more chapter events throughout the year, in addition to additional criteria on the application. http://jrcls.org/forms/committees/chapter_relations/outstanding_award.pdf.
