Chapter Event of the Year
The 2016 Chapter Event-of-the-Year Award goes to New Jersey ASIS&T for the first ASIS&T Regional Meeting held at Rutgers University on April 15: https://www.asist.org/events/asist-regional-meeting-2016-rutgers-university/. The nomination received high point with a theme of participant engagement.

Reviewers noted the timeliness of the topic, diverse and well-known speakers, and opportunities for students and SIGs engagement. It was well-publicized and well attended, both face to face and virtual. As described by the nominator, this event brought together students chapters from Rutgers, Pratt, and Drexel together in working with the NJ Chapter, setting a good example of chapters could collaborate in a mutually beneficial way. In addition to executing a highly successful program, this event created a milestone in ASIS&T and set an example of how ASIS&T could create value for its members at a local level.
