ERA is pleased to announce updates to the Chapters of the Year and COLT (Chapter Officers Leadership Training) programs.
Due to safety restrictions for in-person meetings in 2020, many ERA Chapters have transitioned their in-person chapter activities to virtual events. To reflect these changes, the new Chapters of the Year program is introducing new recognition categories — Education, Membership and Networking. ERA will be inviting chapters to nominate their member activities in the coming weeks.
ERA also announces that the 2021 COLT Program is moving to a virtual platform and will be available free for any chapter members who wish to attend. As such, Chapters of the Year award recipients will no longer receive a scholarship to the COLT Program. In its place, each Chapters of the Year award recipient will receive one conference attendee registration for the ERA Conference in 2022. The registration will apply to a selected member of the awarded chapter and is not transferrable outside of the chapter.
All Chapters of the Year award recipients who have not been able to use the COLT scholarship from previous years, also will be awarded an ERA Conference registration for 2022. The following chapters are eligible to receive this from prior years: Empire State, Chicagoland-Wisconsin, Florida-Sunshine, Southwest, and Arizona.
Stay tuned for more information on the Chapters of the Year new categories entry form coming up at the beginning of 2021. More information on COLT 2021 to come as well.
