Chapter Activities Awards. Each Chapter is encouraged to submit a monthly activities report (AGH Form 6-4) to their Region Director. The Region Director will award points to each activity based upon the number of chapter members that have participated in the activity. The Chapter Activities committee will review all chapter reports at the General Membership Meeting and determine the highest 3 chapters submitting and award recognition certificates to them at the Awards luncheon. The form has two sections. The First is Operation Patriotism and lists any activities that involved the US Flag such as Honor Guard, Parades carrying the flag in uniform, Color Guards, Flag folding demonstrations, etc. The second section is Civic Actions such as working at a food bank, Adopt a Highway program, Memorial runs, Blood drives, Tours of the base, etc. If a chapter had no activities for the month, they are to submit a negative report indicating why the chapter had no activities such as unit deployments, or major inspections. Operation Patriotism and Civic Actions are two separate awards given to local chapters. So a chapter may win recognition for one or both determined by the number of points they earned. All guidance for the award programs is listed in the AGH section 4-2 and 4-4. All monthly reports are to be submitted electronically.
