CRC Resources

  • Sharing Our Success (SOS): The SOS program helps chapters improve through sharing easy-to-use ideas, resources, and practices in the areas of communication, contribution to the community, membership, and the development of programs, products, and services. If your chapter has a best practice, sample form, or template to share, submit your SOS best practice.
  • Chapter of the Month (COM): The COM program highlights a chapter each month that deserves special recognition. Recipients must have had an approved SOS accepted, be Chapter Affiliation Requirements (CARE) achieved, and have not been recognized within the past 18 months.

What is the Chapter Recognition Committee?

The Chapter Recognition Committee (CRC) is charged with identifying, recognizing, and sharing chapter best practices. CRC members recommend and select Sharing Our Success (SOS) submissions for recognition and recognize chapters for the Chapter of the Month (COM) distinction.

Who serves on the CRC?

The CRC consists of five to six committee members (including one chairperson) who are current or former chapter leaders from around the United States. All meetings are conducted virtually.

What is the term of a CRC member?

Members serve for two years. It is recommended that CRC members do not serve on the committee while in their presidential year.

How are CRC members appointed?

Members are selected each fall following the ATD Chapter Leaders Conference (ALC) to begin a term on January 1 of the following year. The chair is appointed by the President and CEO of ATD. The chair is usually from the previous year’s committee membership. The application to serve on the CRC will be posted on this page in September.

What are the expectations of CRC members?

Members are expected to attend all committee conference calls. Members of all chapter-related ATD committees, including the CRC, are expected to maintain current membership in both their local chapter and ATD. CRC members are eligible for the special chapter leader ATD membership rate during their service. Attendance at the ATD Chapter Leaders Conference (ALC) is strongly encouraged.

What are the primary responsibilities of CRC members?

The primary responsibility of the committee is to review SOS submissions for approval and act as advocates to encourage chapter leaders to submit their best practices for recognition. Secondary responsibilities may include providing input on ways to showcase chapter best practices at the ATD International Conference & Exposition and the ATD Chapter Leaders Conference.
