Chapter Honors
Nominations will be accepted January 1 through March 1.
NSSLHA Chapter Honors are awarded to local chapters that demonstrate a commitment to NSSLHA's core values—philanthropy, community service, career awareness, advocacy, and networking.

Chapter Poster Presentations
Submissions will be accepted October 1 through October 31.
NSSLHA chapter posters are an excellent mechanism to facilitate the rapid communication of ideas for chapters, as well as a way to promote local NSSLHA chapters. The chapter poster session offers the potential for new collaborations to develop among peers. Chapter posters should visually guide viewers through the basics of what the local NSSLHA chapter has done throughout the year, provide ideas for other chapters, and encourage creativity.
