Albert J. Myer Awards

These awards, named in honor of General Albert J. Myer, one of the founding fathers of AFCEA, recognizes chapters which excel in membership recruiting and retention. All chapters are automatically considered each year, with the winning results based on pure statistics; no nomination or application is necessary.

To qualify, a chapter must have been chartered for at least one year prior to the evaluation period, and must have maintained the minimum number of members (25) required to retain its Chapter Charter. The period of consideration is January 1 – December 31.

Individual Member Recruiting awards will be presented to those chapters demonstrating the highest percentage increase in new individual members; Individual Member Retention awards recognize those chapters achieving the highest percentage of individual member retention; and Total Membership Growth awards will be presented to chapters with the highest net percentage growth in individual members. The Achievement award recognizes all chapters meeting or exceeding the Association's established goals for both recruiting and retention (currently 30% and 80%, respectively).

The Myer Special Recognition award is given to a chapter that has gone above and beyond in terms of recruiting and retention. This award is not presented every year.
