SITE Chapter of the Year
The SITE Chapter of the Year is the highest honor a Chapter can receive. It is awarded to a chapter that exemplifies the values and mission of SITE, demonstrates value to members, and establishes a sound leadership structure.
Accepting on behalf of the winner, SITE Texas, were Lauren Dunnaway, 2020 Chapter President, & Lorraine Mahoney, 2021 Chapter President.
Throughout the qualification period, SITE Texas amplified its focus on governance and operational excellence to deliver member value and ensure a strong succession to the chapter’s leadership. These efforts resulted in a year-over-year increase in membership of 12.5%, with a 35% growth in new members and a 78% member retention, as well as engaging 25% of the members in a volunteer capacity with the chapter. Key to this success was the launch of a chapter needs assessment to members which provided feedback used to refine the chapter’s strategy.
Demonstrating its commitment to overall industry education and advocacy, the chapter contributed $5,000 to the SITE Foundation.
