award cat i by region 2011 2012
Award / Cat I by Region (2011 – 2012)

From Region to Region, the amount of award money versus Cat I rebate is relatively consistent

award cat i by section size 2011 2012
Award / Cat I by Section Size (2011 – 2012)

Across section sizes, the number of awards given is relatively consistent

BUT

From Very Small to Very Large the “value” of the award is greatly reduced

Section Outstanding Activities Award

Smaller sections have nearly the same number of attendees as larger sections but it represents a much larger percentage of their membership

our thoughts and observations
Our Thoughts and Observations
  • Smaller sections (that make an effort) can double their budgets by winning prize money
  • Prize money is relatively insignificant to the larger section
  • More larger sections win awards but they have more resources
  • Attendance at events held by smaller sections is often equivalent to that at events held by larger sections – BUT, the percentage of the members that are attending is significantly larger
  • Many sections win awards based on producing the “same” events over and over
    • The events are excellent and they know how to produce them well
  • Often sections “plan” for award money which does provide an incentive to produce quality events and submit proper paper work

Smaller sections need award funding and make good use of it

while larger sections do not need and have more inherent resources

our recommendations
Our Recommendations
  • Reduce the prize money
    • 1st from $500 to $350
    • 2nd from $200 to $100
    • 3rd from $100 to $50 saves $300 * 5 * 7 = $10,500
  • Large and Very Large section should be “honored” with the awards but not provided prize money, even the reduced value saves $800 *2 *7 = $11,200
  • Make more stringent rules and create quantifiable rubrics
    • Section should not submit “the same” event or activity two years in a row for award consideration
    • Rubric allows no award to be given and justified

Reduction of Section Awards CAN save $17,500
