​​Chapter Performance Award


The purpose of the Chapter Performance Award is to ensure the delivery of high-quality education and camaraderie to the local community of benefits professionals by the ISCEBS chapter network. The International Society designed this program to provide chapter performance incentives and acknowledge outstanding accomplishments based on the mission and vision of the organization.

To assist chapters in annual duties, the Society has developed a simple checklist of items and time frames. When a chapter has completed the checklist, it will be recognized as a Top Performing Chapter, honored at the Symposium and in NewsBriefs, and receive a tiered recognition award.

The recommended deadline for completion of each task is included.
