Arkansas Chapter Wins a 25th Anniversary John Tooker Evergreen All-Star Award
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program, the Evergreen All-Star Awards recognizes the Arkansas Chapter program, George Ackerman Reading Retreat Original Submission: 1996. The program has contributed to the strength and breadth of ACP and its chapters, and demonstrated sustainability through successive leadership terms.
We are pleased to announce that our chapter is in receipt of the Silver Level of the 2021 Chapter Excellence Award! Only 13 chapters received the Silver Award. The award recognizes chapters that achieve excellence in chapter management. In order to achieve the Chapter Excellence Award, chapters must meet twenty-one Bronze criteria and seventeen Silver criteria. Criteria include such activities as undertaking efforts to increase advocacy efforts, collaborating with stakeholders to increase visibility of the ACP, holding competitions for members, providing chapter financial reports to members, having Medical Student and Resident/Fellow members on the Governor's Advisory council, retaining transitional and unpaid members, giving awards to chapter members. We would like to extend a special thanks to those chapter members who assisted us in all of these endeavors! For their hard work and dedication, we received this award.
