The Las Vegas Chapter has successfully achieved the Chapter Achievement Program’s PLATINUM award level! The program, referred to as CAP, requires each chapter to tally the different activities in which its members participate that promote the IIA. For example, achievement points may be earned for presentations given by Chapter members or for the number of participants that attend a sponsored or cosponsored IIA Chapter event. The CAP program is the IIA’s Business Score Card used to monitor and recognize the activities of the local chapters that promote the strategic objectives of the IIA.
Las Vegas’s PLATINUM status is a notable accomplishment. Only Chapters that attain GOLD status for 10 consecutive years are recognized as a PLATINUM chapter. Throughout the year, the achievement program monitors and scores each chapter’s participation in the following three service categories:
• Service to Members
• Service to the Profession
• Chapter Administration
At the end of the year, CAP evaluates the success of each chapter’s efforts through use of four performance level classifications:
• BRONZE: 685 achievement credits
• SILVER: 1,060 achievement credits
• GOLD: 1,560 achievement credits
• PLATINUM: GOLD status achievement 10 consecutive years
In order to continue our success and become the top scorer, compared to larger chapters in the United States, we need your assistance in tracking the CAP points we have earned.
If you are aware of chapter membership activities that will earn us CAP points or have any questions regarding the CAP program, please contact Michelle Horvath at firstname.lastname@example.org.
