TLLA Terry Lowrance Leadership Award
The Terry Lowrance Leadership Award recognizes outstanding local chapters that have actively participated in Phi Beta Lambda state and national conferences, projects, programs, and publicity/membership activities throughout the year as established by the state chapter goals developed for the year.
The Terry Lowrance Leadership Award (which was initiated in 1994 as the "Blue Ribbon Award") has been designated as an official component of the State Awards Program as a means of recognizing our outstanding local chapters which actively participate in conferences, programs, projects, and publicity and membership activities afforded through the state and national associations during the year. Since specific guidelines for the Award change annually, the official Terry Lowrance Leadership Award brochure and entry form is distributed to each local chapter as well as being included in the State Handbook, Section 08. The program provides a menu of participatory opportunities in the categories of Conferences, Projects, Programs, and Publicity & Membership. Those local chapters meeting the requirements as specified in each category will be recognized with Terry Lowrance Leadership Award ribbons during the State Leadership Conference next April in Charlotte. While the North Carolina Gold Seal Chapter Award is limited to 15% of the state's active local chapters, the Terry Lowrance Leadership Award can be achieved by ALL local chapters meeting the program's requirements.
he Terry Lowrance Leadership Award (TLLA) program can be used as a guide for planning chapter activities during the year. Some items have already been achieved since the time period for the Terry Lowrance Leadership Award recognition for the current year actually began at the beginning of the last year's State Leadership Conference. The program is aimed toward providing chapter officers and members with a summary of the many opportunities that Phi Beta Lambda provides for developing competent, aggressive business leadership.
All active local chapters are eligible.
1. The chapter president and adviser must complete the entry form and certify that the chapter has met the criteria.
2. For entry in the Terry Lowrance Leadership Award, chapters must provide all applicable information requested on the official entry form which is provided annually for each local chapter as a separate document outlining the criteria for that year. All documentation must be typed or word-processed. Any handwritten documentation will automatically disqualify the entry.
3. The time period for this award is from the beginning of one State Leadership Conference to the deadline date for submitting the event entry form prior to the next State Leadership Conference.
The entry must be received in the State Office by date listed on the NCPBL Calendar.
Entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will verify documentation to determine those chapters deserving recognition. All judges' decisions are final.
