NCSHRM State Council Awards

Chapter Crown Award

Chapter Crown Award

The NC State Council Crown Awards Program is an annual recognition program honoring the highest achievements in chapter development and contributions that Advance the Profession and Serve the Professional. Chapters enter the competition by submitting an innovative project created and implemented by the chapter during the award period (January – December), and special consideration is given to successful programs that are readily transferable to other chapters. The award is open to any North Carolina SHRM-affiliated chapter.

Award Criteria:

Using the chapter’s written submission as the sole basis for award evaluation, the Selection Committee judges the chapter’s achievements following these Standards of Excellence:

  • Outstanding accomplishment that experts or peers in the human resource profession would agree deserves special recognition.
  • Significant technical or professional impact within the chapter or HR community.
  • High levels of originality or inventiveness that clearly identify the chapter as creating an innovative enhancement or solution to a significant issue or problem
  • Outstanding leadership and coordination of extremely effective activities.
  • A program that produced significant results above and beyond expectations and enabled the chapter to meet key benchmarks and schedules that otherwise would not have been completed.
  • Improved program, service and product quality or member satisfaction to a degree that significantly increased chapter membership and revenue and/or reduced costs.

Nomination Deadline:  August 24th

Award Date:  NCSHRM Annual Conference


Winning chapters will have their program or project highlighted at the 2024 NCSHRM Q4 meeting and 2024 State Conference.  A special Crown Award will be presented to the winners as well.
