Illinois Council of Chapters and 3 Illinois Chapters Receive Level of Excellence and Communication Awards for 2023

MOAA is pleased to announce the winners of the annual Council and Chapter Levels of Excellence (LOE) Awards for performance in 203.


Out of almost 400 MOAA affiliates, 169 councils and chapters earned LOE award recognition this year. These councils and chapters excel at supporting and fostering programs that directly support the MOAA mission and their communities.


Please join us in congratulating and thanking our selfless volunteers who work tirelessly within our affiliate network on behalf of this association. 


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 LOE Winners

The annual Col. Marvin J. Harris Communications Awards recognizes councils and chapters that achieve excellence in communicating with their members and communities. MOAA affiliates nominated themselves in two categories: newsletters (print or electronic) and websites. Submissions were judged on design and content.
