Three outstanding chapters were honored at the 87th World Conference in Orlando. Many chapters worked hard to fill the top spots, a fact that was reflected in the close races in each of the chapter categories. However, only one chapter in each size category was able to earn the title of 2013 Chapter of the Year.

Medium Chapter of the Year: Detroit Chapter    
Congratulations to these chapters on this time-honored achievement. To reward the winning chapters' efforts, we are eligible to receive a Club Management Institute-endorsed grant for $3,000 sponsored by The Club Foundation. All three chapter of the year winners were also recognized at the Awards and Conference Finale with a trophy and will have their names engraved on the overall Chapter of the Year trophy, which is displayed at CMAA National Headquarters! There were many outstanding entries. While all chapters are automatically entered into this award program, only those chapters submitting a chapter résumé are eligible to win. This piece helps the judging committee to better recognize the unique accomplishments of each chapter. Impressive accomplishments were abundant – all CMAA members should be proud of the level of excellence that exists within the Association’s chapter system.

The DCMA also finished second in Membership Growth behind the St. Louis Chapter. The DCMA also took second place for the medium chapter category in the Excellence in Education Awards.

Congratulations to the DCMA on winning this most prestigious award. It would not have been possible without the support of every single member of the Chapter.

Tammy CarterRecommendations for Scheduling Software

Hello!  I am seeking recommendations for scheduling software.  We would like to explore programs that would have the following features (along with others)...

1.  Enable employees to enter their own standard availability.

2.  Enable employees to enter requested time off, but require manager approval to be valid.

3.  Allow employee pay rates to be tied to time scheduled so labor expenses could be calculated as the schedule is built.

If anyone has experience with a program that they recommend using (or not using!), I would appreciate your advice!

Thank you,
