ACP Honors Venezuela Chapter with an Evergreen Award

At this year's Internal Medicine Meeting, ACP presented fifteen Evergreen Awards to honor Chapters that created new programs that strengthened the chapter and increased member communication and involvement.

The Venezuela Chapter received the 2007 Evergreen Award for their Membership Recruitment Initiatives. Here is a brief description of the chapters' effort.

In an effort to expand the Chapter's previous 2006 Evergreen submission on their aggressive membership recruitment plan, the Venezuela Chapter executed various personalized strategies to recruit and retain members. Activities included organizing scientific lectures, sponsoring educational activities to the postgraduate students in the six area hospitals, and making personal contacts with internists and subspecialists at these locations and others in private clinics. In addition, Chapter Council members followed-up with eligible members to encourage advancement to Fellowship and assist them with sponsoring letters. The Chapter has managed to increase the number of members and Fellows by 15% and increase their number of students by almost 5% in the last year.
