Awards & Recognition

 

 

Each year, AFA seeks to recognize outstanding contributions by our members/colleagues in twelve different categories. Those categories are listed below. The recipients of the 2017 awards will be announced during the AFA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA. The awards presented at the Closing Banquet are the Robert H. Shaffer, Jack L. Anson, Sue Kraft Fussell Distinguished Service Awards, and the Dr. Kent L. Gardner Award. All other awards are presented at the AFA/AFA Foundation Recognition Luncheon.

Nomination Instructions

2017 award nominations are now open! All award nominations are due Monday, July 10, 2017 and must be submitted through the corresponding online forms which are linked below. Before submitting an award, please review the 10 Tips for an Outstanding Nomination.

 

In addition, we've updated the criteria for the Gayle Webb New Professional Award to state: similar to time spent as a graduate student, time spent working as a consultant for an inter/national organization will not be considered as part of the professional experience counted in the award eligibility requirements. The requirements indicate recipients must be in their first three years of Association membership (exclusive of time as a graduate student or consultant for an inter/national organization).

 

The change was made to ensure nominees’ eligibility window consists of work that adequately allows the individual to meet other award criteria, specifically service to the field of fraternity/sorority advising and the ability to make an impact on the organization/fraternity and sorority community.
