Model Section Award

2015 Model Section Recipients

All Sections with their associated activities are what really nourish the Academy.  Model Sections are those with active Chairperson involvement who consistently raise the bar on their Section's activities and are involved at the International level.  The Model Section Award was established in 2014. The award is presented to acknowledge and encourage Sections and their Chairs to pursue activities that meet and exceed the goals and objectives of the Academy.  The Awards are presented to the Section Chair of the Model Section during the Annual Awards Luncheon of the Academy during the Annual Meeting.
