Chapter History E-Book Award


Like its print Chapter History Award predecessor, the Chapter History E-Book Award serves the following purposes:
• To encourage all chapters to keep an accurate record of programs and activities;

• to encourage all chapters to receive publicity for their work;

• to encourage all chapters to develop a continuous historical record.

We can also present a new encouragement guide:
• to ease the transportation and interchange of information between the chapters in meetings and conventions,
• to encourage all chapters to preserve the environment by choosing electronic and digital formats,
• to expand the technological knowledge of each chapter by using media platforms for creation.
 

Any TriBeta Chapter historian may submit a chapter history e-book to either a district convention or a biennial national convention. Materials and programs may be purchased, but the completed book must be the work of chapter members and the chapter may use their own designing capacity and skills. For the district convention the record of activities usually covers the period of one year since the last district convention but, the record of activities for the biennial convention the chapter should cover the period of two years since the last biennial convention; however highlights of chapter history and special events may go back to the chapter beginning.

 

The introduction to the chapter history must contain the following:
• Greek name, college or university affiliation, region and location of the chapter
• A table of contents including the pages number
