Other Things: 

  1. The job also entails an essay component, but the chapter has not actively pursued an essay competition in years.
  2. The Awards chair is also responsible for posting engraved nameplates to plaques located in the Washington Chapter trophy case.
    1. Each year the chapter wins specific awards at PDI.  National will send engraved nameplates to be added to existing plaques, instead of sending brand new plaques each year.
    2. The plaques were previously located in a display case outside OSD (Comptroller) in the Pentagon.  However, when the Comptroller area was renovated, the Chapter was ordered to remove all the plaques and awards from the case, and the display case was later destroyed.  The plaques and awards are in boxes and in caretaker status with Lucy Williams (OSD/Comptroller) and Vic Ackley (U.S. Navy).  Both are Washington Chapter board members.
    3. When a permanent location is found for OSD(C), then the Chapter should request space from OSD(C) to set up a new display case.  The chapter will need to purchase a replacement case.
