Each year at the regional conferences, the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV) recognizes outstanding Greek, Interfraternity, Multicultural, National Pan-Hellenic, and Panhellenic Councils with the presentation of awards.
All AFLV member councils are encouraged to apply for awards in one or more programming categories and for the Overall Excellence Awards. The process of preparing an award application in and of itself will assist the council in evaluating its programs and services. The submission of an application gives the council an opportunity to have its programs evaluated by outside experts who will provide written and verbal feedback.
Awards MAY BE presented on TWO levels
Category Awards (Programming Excellence Awards)
Programming Excellence Awards are presented to councils whose application in a programming category indicates outstanding achievement. A council may submit applications for one, several or all PEA categories within its division. Awards will be presented to all councils that qualify in each programming category (see Review of Applications).
For Greek, Interfraternity, and Panhellenic Councils, the eight (8) categories are: Academic Achievement, Council Management, Leadership & Educational Development, Membership Recruitment, Philanthropy & Community Service, Public Relations, Risk Reduction & Management, Self-Governance & Judicial Affairs
For National Pan-Hellenic Councils, the seven (7) categories are: Academic Achievement, Council Management, Community Service, Leadership & Educational Development, Membership Intake, Public Relations, Self-Governance & Judicial Affairs.
For Multicultural Greek Councils, the six (6) categories are: Academic Achievement, Community Service, Council Management & Public Relations, Leadership & Educational Development, Membership Intake, Self Governance & Judicial Affairs
Overall Excellence Awards
There is one Overall Excellence Award for each Awards & Assessment Division. Councils wishing to qualify for the Overall Excellence Award in their division must submit applications for all available PEA categories. The council with the highest overall percentage of achievement across all categories will receive the Overall Excellence Award.
Note that if no councils in a division are eligible (i.e. do not submit applications for all available categories) or the highest overall percentage of achievement is too low (e.g. 60% or less), and Overall Excellence Award may not be given.
In each region, many of these awards are named for individuals who have given much to AFLV, its predecessor organizations and the cause of advancing fraternity and sorority. For information about which awards are named, and for whom, please see the Award Winners tab at the left of this page.
