Chapter of the Year and Excellence Awards

Chapter of the Year and Excellence Awards

Through the Chapter of the Year and Excellence Awards, SITE acknowledges the extraordinary efforts and performance of local chapter leaders and members, as well as recognizes the importance of the SITE Chapter network to support growth and continued success of local initiatives that result in the strengthening of our incentive travel industry.

This year, the Chapter Excellence Awards acknowledge the extraordinary efforts and performance of our chapters across the globe. Throughout the lockdowns and uncertainty in our industry, our chapters reached out to and supported members with both educational and spirit-lifting content.

They truly demonstrated the importance of an industry community like SITE.

This year, we recognized chapters in 8 categories and received submissions from 17 different chapters. A judging panel of 29 volunteer leaders anonymously judged the submissions. Our thanks to each of these individuals for their support of our chapters.
