GUIDELINES FOR CHAPTER OF THE YEAR


Chapter of the Year form must be handed in to your ASD by October 15th.

The ASD must give the Chapter of the Year form to the state director by  
November  1st.

The Chapter of the Year form must be neat and legible.

Pictures may be used, but you won’t get them back.

Your chapter of the year form may include things your chapter has done from  
the last quarter of the prior year and the first three quarters of the current year.  

You may attach as many sheets to the form as is necessary to explain what your
chapter has done for the year.

Florida Good Sams likes to see what you have done in the community.
For example:  Ronald McDonald House, the needy, Special Olympics, etc.

When you work on a project, Florida Good Sams wants to know how many
people worked on this project, how much time did it take/how many man hours,
what was the outcome?
If you raise money for a project, put that down also.

Does your chapter attend, support, and volunteer at the State Rallies? If so, how
many do you attend?
How many members of your chapter attend the Rallies?  
This is important on the state level.

To qualify for the CHAPTER OF THE YEAR award your project (s) must have
taken place during calendar year. The project (s) may be a continuing one, but
some major goals must have been accomplished during the above period.

Your entry should include a description of your Chapter's project (s) and
information on how the goals of the project (s) were met. Tell us your story in
pictures, correspondence, thank-you letters, newspaper clippings or any other
form. Remember — the entry does not need to be complicated, but the
committee can only base the final selection of CHAPTER OF THE YEAR on the
material you provide!!

The following is not a form to be completed and returned, but a set of guidelines
to help you prepare your entry. We suggest that you include:

1.   Chapter Name
2.   Location of the Chapter (City and State)
3.   Number of Chapter Members
4   How many participated in the project (s)
5.   Explanation of your project (s)
6.   What initiated this project (s)
7.   Goals of the project (s)
8.   What your Chapter did, and dates of the project (s)
9.   Is the project (s) a continuing one, and if so, what are future plans and goals
10. If funds were required for the project (s), how they were raised
11. Try to include pictures of your chapter members WORKING ON YOUR
PROJECT, and any correspondence pertaining to your project (s) thank-you
notes, newspaper clippings, etc. Remember your campouts and pot-lucks are not
what is important…..
YOUR PROJECTS ARE
12. Make sure your entry is received  no later than December 31, by your
Director. The State Director request your books to be turned in NO LATER

A Chapter wishing to be recognized by Good Sam Club will present to the State
Director  a summary of their Chapter of the Year book.  The State Director will send
this to Good Sam headquarters where a chapter will be chosen randomly from all states
and their picture will appear in a Good Sam magazine.
