To honor the exemplary service of our affiliates in the education community, ASCD annually considers applications for Affiliate Honors Awards. On Saturday, at the Leadership Appreciation Luncheon, we were proud to recognize our 2017 award winners.
The Alabama, Illinois, and Texas affiliates received the Overall Excellence Award for their work in membership; communications and publications; programs, products, and services; influence and policy, and governance. In addition, Area of Excellence awards recognize achievement in specific areas of work. Colorado ASCD received the Excellence Award for Advocacy for its Denver ESSA Symposium in April of last year, and North Carolina ASCD received the Excellence Award for Membership for increasing its membership by almost 30 percent over the past year through innovative benefits and offerings.
"The affiliate honorees are committed to supporting educators as they strive to enhance education for all students," said ASCD Executive Director and CEO Deborah S. Delisle. "ASCD is strengthened by the work of our affiliates, and we thank them for their support and leadership."
ASCD affiliates are geographically based groups of educators who strive to enrich learning in local communities, influence education policy at the state level, and exchange high-quality education practices. ASCD has more than 50 national and international affiliates. Based on voting by ASCD affiliate leaders, the Affiliate Honors Program provides the opportunity to celebrate one another’s work and honor those colleagues who model excellence in support of ASCD’s mission, vision, and goals, including the whole child approach to education.
ASCD affiliates are a great way to meet with and learn from local educators in your region. Through affiliate membership, you can explore state and local education issues, hone your leadership skills, and participate in professional learning opportunities.
