Truman's ten alumni chapters vie for this annual award which recognizes a chapter's success in building alumni engagement. Chapters can gain an edge by hosting regional events, recruiting new members, organizing volunteer or philanthropic opportunities in the chapter region, demonstrating support for current Truman students, and using communications to keep members connected to the chapter and the University.
The Iowa Alumni Chapter was selected by the Executive Committee of the Truman State University Alumni Board of Directors to receive the 2014 Chapter of the Year Award. The award recognizes the outstanding achievements of the chapter in support of the Truman Alumni Association and the University.
The chapter was recognized for their success in recruiting engaged volunteers who have planned strategies to increase membership and program participation.
Runner-up to the 2014 Chapter of the Year was the Northeast Missouri Alumni Chapter.
