Member Recognition


The Recognition of Long-Standing Members Program is an opportunity by which CHES can recognize those members who have continually supported the organization over the years. CHES has continued to grow and many of those early members continue to support the organization. The recognition program is a small way in which we recognize and show our appreciation for their years of support.

As an organization that was 40 years old in 2020, we have numerous members who have supported and have been members of the organization for over 10 years – a milestone in most organizations today. The recognition program aims to recognize those current members who have achieved this milestone and increments of every 5 years and thereafter, by presenting them with a recognition plaque and lapel pin annually at the National Conference.
