The AFLV Awards & Assessment program is designed specifically to assist councils in achieving the highest level of excellence possible in programming and council management. The documents outline actions and policies of an ideal council.
The process of preparing an award application in and of itself will assist the council in evaluating its programs and services. The submission of an application gives the council an opportunity to have its programs evaluated by outside experts who will provide written and verbal feedback.
In order to be eligible your council must have paid your annual membership subscription fee; no exceptions. Councils that have not paid membership dues as of the awards deadline will not be eligible to receive awards.
Councils must send at least one delegate to one regional conference. Any council that submits an application but does not send at least one delegate to one of the two regional conferences must pay an application fee of $25 per category. Please submit payment with your application.
Each year at the regional conferences, we recognize outstanding Greek, Interfraternity, Multicultural, National Pan-Hellenic, and Panhellenic Councils with the presentation of awards.
All AFLV member councils are encouraged to apply for awards in one or more programming categories and for the Overall Excellence Awards. The process of preparing an award application in and of itself will assist the council in evaluating its programs and services. The submission of an application gives the council an opportunity to have its programs evaluated by outside experts who will provide written and verbal feedback.
Awards may be present on two levels.
Category Awards (Programming Excellence Awards)
Programming Excellence Awards are presented to councils whose application in a programming category indicates outstanding achievement. A council may submit applications for one, several or all PEA categories within its division. Awards will be presented to all councils that qualify in each programming category.
The eight (8) categories are: Academic Achievement, Council Management, Leadership & Educational Development, Membership Recruitment, Philanthropy & Community Service, Public Relations, Risk Reduction & Management, Self-Governance & Judicial Affairs.
Overall Excellence Awards
There is one Overall Excellence Award for each Awards & Assessment Division. Councils wishing to qualify for the Overall Excellence Award in their division must submit applications for all available PEA categories. The council with the highest overall percentage of achievement across all categories will receive the Overall Excellence Award.
Note that if no councils in a division are eligible (i.e. do not submit applications for all available categories) or the highest overall percentage of achievement is too low (e.g. 60% or less), and Overall Excellence Award may not be given.
