​HRPA Chapter Awards​

The mission of HRPA's Chapters is to engage members with opportunities to be part of a professional community, to volunteer, to mentor and be mentored, to develop their skills and capabilities and thereby advance their careers—in short, to enrich the members' experience, in alignment with the Association's strategic plan.

HRPA's Chapter Recognition Awards will recognize and celebrate the progress our Chapters have made toward enriching the member's experience, using these key metrics: 

  • member satisfaction rating; 
  • number of mentors and protégés matched through the local mentoring programs; 
  • percent member net retention and percent net growth; 
  • and the adoption of member engagement practices. 

To be consistent with all of our measuring guidelines the Chapter Awards will be based on HRPA's fiscal year (December to November) with the exception of Annual Member Satisfaction Survey Award. 

All chapters are eligible and no nominations are required. Awards will be presented for First, Second, and Third place in four categories; and First place and ties only for Chapter Member Engagement Practices. The Chapters will be divided to Small (<250 members), Medium (>251 members up to 999 members) and Large (>1000 members) for the net retention and net growth awards.

Chapter Award categories:

  • Chapter Award for Net Retention
  • Chapter Award for Net Growth
  • Annual Member Satisfaction Survey Award
  • Mentoring Award
  • Engagement Award
  • Overall Award

Chapter Award for Net Retention​

Member retention is another indicator of member engagement whether the chapter is small, medium or large. This award measures the number of members who have renewed their memberships as of November 30th for that membership year.

  • Calculation: Total number of members at the end of November 30th minus 12 months of new members in the fiscal year divided by total number of members in the previous fiscal year, expressed as a percent.

  • Example: Your chapter have 500 members at the end of the fiscal year. 100 members joined your chapter from December 1, 2014 to November 30, 2015. Your total member on November 30, 2014 was 600. So the chapter had net retention of 400 (500 – 100) / 600 = 66.67%.The chapter with the highest net retention percentage from the Small, Medium and Large Chapters wins.


Chapter Award for Net Growth

Membership growth is a key outcome of member engagement whether the chapter is small, medium or large. This award measures the number of members who have renewed their memberships as of November 30th for the current membership year. To qualify the chapter must meet a minimum of 3% net growth.

  • Calculation: The result of the number of members joining during the fiscal year ending November 30th minus the number of members who did not renew during the fiscal year ending November 30th, divided by the total number of members as of November 30th, expressed as a percent.
  • Example: Your chapter have 600 members at the end of the fiscal year. 100 members joined your chapter from December 1, 2014 to November 30, 2015. During the same year 50 of your 600 members did not renew.  So the chapter had net growth of 50 (100 – 50). 50 / 600 = 8.3%. The chapter with the highest net growth percentage from the Small, Medium and Large Chapters wins.

Annual Member Satisfaction Survey Award

Member opinion from the annual member survey provides powerful insights into member engagement and is a critical component of the Association's planning process. This awar​d measures the highest member opinion of overall chapter performance, expressed as an average on a scale of 1 to 6. To qualify the greater of 20 members or 10% of total chapter members (net of active chapter executives) must have responded to the survey.

  • Calculation: Add up the average scores [1 (low) - 6 (high)] for Chapter Board and Influence, Continuing Professional Development opportunities, Networking, Mentoring, Contribution, Pride, Meeting Attendance, Recommendation, and Value for Dues and divide by 10.
  • Example: Your chapter has 630 members as of April 30, 2015 (the last full month prior to the close of the annual member satisfaction survey). To qualify for this award, you first need 63 members (who are not current chapter executives) to have completed the survey (630 X 10% = 63). Then HRPA averages your scores for the metrics above: 
    • Chapter Board: 4.6
    • Chapter Influence: 4.3
    • CPD Opportunities: 4.6
    • Benefited from Networking: 4.7
    • Benefited from Mentoring:4.0
    • Opportunity to Contribute: 4.2
    • Proud of my Chapter: 5.0
    • Attend Meetings: 3.9
    • Recommend my Chapter to Others: 5.0
    • Value for Dues: 4.8 
    • Total: 45.10
    • 45.10 / 10 (the number of criteria) = 4.51

The chapter with the highest numeric engagement rank is awarded First place.

Mentoring Award ​

Mentoring is a critical component of value for members and an important engagement strategy. All professionals need mentoring at some point in their careers. HRPA's young professionals have identified "soft skills" as being a core developmental need. Mentoring is a tangible way for chapters to create community, provide for the needs of protégés and deliver meaningful membership experiences for mentors (as well as CPD credit hours for designated members). To qualify, the chapter must use Mentor City. This award measures the highest number of mentors and protégés paired through the local mentoring programs. 

  • Calculation: The number of paired mentors and protégés during the fiscal year (November 30th) in the chapter's mentoring program by using a report from Mentor City, divided by total Chapter membership during the fiscal year (November 30). The Mentoring Award is given to the top three chapters in terms of the percentage of members enrolled in the chapter program who are actually paired with a mentor. Previously, this award was granted on the basis of total enrollment alone. 
  • Example: You have 63 paired mentors and protégés as of November 30, 2017 divided by 200 the total Chapter membership at the end of November 30, 2017. 63 / 200 = 31.50%.


Engagement Award ​

HRPA exit surveys tell us that the more engaged the member is with their local chapter, the more likely they are to maintain their membership. For instance, if a member attends even one chapter event, they are 8 times more likely to maintain their membership. If they attend two or more chapter events they are 19 times more to maintain their membership.

  • Calculation: The number of members who have registered for one or more events run by the local chapter by the end of November 2017 divided by the total Chapter membership. 

  • Example: You have 172 members who registered for your Chapter events held no later than November 30, 2017 divided by a Chapter membership of 299 as at November 30, 2017. 172 / 299 = 57.5%.
