EAA recognizes chapter members for their personal commitment and contributions to EAA, chapters, and their fellow members.
Nominate those chapter members who have gone the extra mile and beyond throughout the year for the betterment of the chapter, EAA, and the GA community. Strong and healthy EAA chapters are the backbone of the organization. Those honored have demonstrated their passion and dedication for their chapter, EAA, and the recreational aviation community.
2021 Nomination Forms – Nominations Close on May 31.
Many EAA members go above and beyond the call of their chapter member duty. To recognize these select individuals, EAA awards members with a Chapter Major Achievement Award. Winners are selected for their EAA and chapter dedication, service to the aviation community, and their personal achievement.
Newsletters are one of the main communication link for chapters. Composing a monthly chapter newsletter that is informative, easy to read and interesting is a daunting task for the newsletter editor. Newsletters are judged on consistency, appearance, layout, and content.
Many EAA chapters have embraced the internet as a way to communicate and connect fellow aviators, allowing them to better serve the local member and the aviation community at large. Websites are judged on ease of use, appearance, layout, and content.
