This topic should be Quality Unit>
Quality unit awards are based on the ENDING date of the charter, not the charter
year or the year in which the awards are available for purchase. Therefore
Frank, please take the 1990 and 1990 streamers in to your Council office and
request a 1991 one to go along with the 1990 one....and congratudations!
(for example....charter year runs from May 1 1991 to May 1 1992. In 1992,
the unit, if qualified, gets the Quality unit streamer and the RIGHT to
PURCHASE Quality Unit insignia, plaques, etc....)
Did you know that COUNCILS and DISTRICTS (and REGIONS) also have Quality
criteria..and that there are emblems/plaques/awards for those as well???
One of the best examples of District unity was one District in Virginia
and another one in Indiana. The District's leadership felt so strongly about
making the District a quality district that both District Chairmen (both
presidents of local big businesses) DONATED the cost of a Quality District
patch to EVERY volunteer...and in the Virginia case, gave a equal amount
to one of the poorer (intercity) districts as part of their SME drive.
Not only did they exceed the SME figures for their district by a large margin,
but it set the stage for continued "good feelings" among all in the District.
Even those units that did nothing benefited, and it helped in this year's
SME/OFS drive and program year. I will be in touch with Rich later so I can
find out how the district in Indiana is doing...the district in virginia
will be a Quality District again..despite losing their DE to promotion!!
