In order to provide member councils the best assessment data and to compare "apples to apples" for recognition purposes, AFLV divides member councils into the divisions based on type of council and number of member chapters. Councils that submit the Awards & Assessment Applications each year will receive recognition within their designated division and an assessment report that shows how their achievement compares to others in their division.
Councils should determine the division in which they belong. Councils may apply in as few or as many categories as they wish. In order to be eligible for the Overall Division Council Award, the council must apply in all eight categories.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need the latest version of Adobe Reader in order to open the applications. Visit the Adobe Website to get the latest version of Acrobat Reader for your computer. After opening the PDF Portfolio, you will need to save it under a different name to your preferred location BEFORE editing the document.
