AMS Awards Anouncement 


Oregon AMS members, et al:

I wanted to share with you all an e-mail that we just received from our national AMS headquarters. They are recognizing our (Oregon) chapter for our outstanding accomplishments last season. I would like to take a moment and thank all of you for helping make Oregon the single largest (and most exciting) local chapter of the AMS in the country. I would especially like to thank last year's executive council for putting it all together and never forgetting our chapter's mission statement.

Please see full national AMS award recognition e-mail below.

Steve Pierce
Oregon AMS President

Good morning Steve and Bobby,

Thank you for your application for 2011-12 AMS "Local Chapter of the Year" award. Every year the Local Chapter Affairs Committee is tasked with choosing the winners for this award (both student and regular chapters) and once again this year's applicants were outstanding. With so many impressive applicants, the job of selecting winners for this award is a difficult one.

Although the Oregon chapter was not designated as "Regular Chapter of the Year", the committee wants to recognize your chapter for its outstanding accomplishments by awarding you "Honor Roll" Chapter for 2011-12. The committee would like to commend you on the chapters ability to bring in excellent speakers which foster great discussion and were well attended within the community.  We also wanted to commend the chapter on the number of members your chapter and the revenues that that have been raised. Congratulations on your 65th year in service of your community as well!

Your chapter will be recognized at the Chapter Awards Breakfast at the AMS Annual Meeting in Austin, TX on Tuesday, January 8, 2013. You should be proud of the accomplishments your chapter has achieved and we encourage you apply again for the "Local Chapter of the Year"
award this coming spring.
