Chapter Excellence Award

The Chapter Excellence Award replaced the Secretary’s Commendation Award that was previously given to chapters that submitted all of the required chapter reports and fees correctly and on time during a fiscal year.   The new award presented for the first time at the 2016 Tau Beta Pi National Convention takes reporting into account as well as other factors such as membership, District Conference attendance, program participation (EF, Fellowships/Scholarships, MindSET, Pi Day), and advisor involvement.

The Iowa Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi has received the Chapter Excellence Award and Secretary’s Commendation Award 22 times: 1986-87, 1987-88, 1988-89, 1989-90 1990-91, 1992-93, 1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-2000, 2000-01, 2001-02, 2002-03, 2003-04, 2007-08, 2008-09, 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17.
