Bill Helms Chapter of the Year Award

Conceived in 1994. and named after Bill Helms, the first National President of PCEA and one of the original founders, this National award was established to recognize an outstanding PCEA Chapter each year.  This award is based on a point system in which various points are earned throughout the year, based on different criteria in five major categories.  These categories are Chapter Membership, Chapter Procedures, National Involvement, Education & Scholarships and Computer Technology.  Each Chapter entry is to be submitted in a professional manner using a bound notebook, providing backup documentation.  The Chapter earning the most points overall is regarded as an exemplary Chapter.  The first award was presented to the Blue Ridge Chapter, Roanoke, VA, at the National Convention in May 1995.


2019 Bill Helms Chapter of the Year Award Recipients

Orlando Chapter


“At the beginning of the 2018-2019 year, Christina Kanhai, then Orlando Chapter President, assigned me the task of bringing the Bill Helms trophy back to the Orlando chapter. I was the Orlando Chapter President-Elect, a role that usually doesn't have very many responsibilities besides filling in here and there if the President is absent. As the year wore on, Alfredo Barrott (Treasurer), Brandon Ulmer (Secretary), Christina Stone and Patti Eaves (Newsletter Team) really did all the work of getting our reports submitted, I just was the annoying one that sent out reminders every month! What our chapter realized is that if we do the work, it will be very hard for any other chapter to beat us. 

It was an awesome feeling to get a text the night of the award ceremony finding out that we brought the trophy back to Orlando. After making its first stop at our Member Meeting, the trophy is on a victory tour to all of the board members offices. We have a goal for 2019-2020 to make sure the trophy stays right here in Sunny Florida next year.”
