 About the K. Wayne Snipes Award

Established in 1989, the K. Wayne Snipes Chapter Recognition Award provides recognition to the chapters that meet or exceed service goals by actively supporting local membership, and thus ISACA.

Criteria assessment is based on information submitted as part of the annual Chapter Annual Report. To be included in the judging process, chapters must also submit their Balanced Scorecard Rating Grid and proof of an annual audit/verification/review. The hapter performance was assessed on many items, including:

  • Compliance with ISACA International Headquarters requirements:
  • Chapter membership growth
  • Educational events put on by the chapter
  • Attendance at chapter meetings/educational events
  • Involvement on association committees, or with association activities
  • Involvement with other professional organizations
  • Member service projects


Growth and Retention

Two types of awards are presented every year to one chapter per size category: One for greatest percentage growth of membership and one for greatest percentage retention in membership. To qualify, chapters must have been in existence for the entire year under consideration. The awards are presented at the respective leadership conference of the winning chapters.

In addition to the respective winners, ISACA is recognizing top contenders for both the Chapter Growth Award and the Chapter Retention Award. Honorable mentions are given to chapters who did not win an award but still had significant growth or retention
