MOAA is pleased to announce the winners of the annual Council and Chapter Levels of Excellence (LOE) Awards for performance in 2021.

 

Out of just over 400 MOAA affiliates, 161 councils and chapters nominated themselves for LOE award recognition this year.  Despite a difficult year of transition from the COVID-19 pandemic, these councils and chapters adapted and improvised when necessary to support and foster programs that directly support the MOAA mission and their communities.

 

All LOE nomination packages were independently evaluated by two members of the Council and Chapter Affairs Committee of the MOAA Board of Directors.  Throughout the grading process, it was very clear that our councils and chapters didn’t just maintain satisfactory performance but rather, excelled in their mission and determination.

 

Each year, affiliate leaders may nominate their council or chapter for a Levels of Excellence award for the previous calendar year.  Only the very, very best councils or chapters receive a five-star award.  Congratulations to our Illinois 5-Star LOE Winners:
