Congratulations Georgia Section. For the Second Time in Three Years, GAITE has won the Outstanding Section/Chapter Award. This also makes three of the last four winners from the Southern District #SDITE! Check your "Spotlite" email sent this morning or see the link below!

2020 Winner: Georgia Section of ITE

This annual award recognizes a section or chapter that has outstanding activities, events, and opportunities for its members to engage in professional development, networking, and community outreach.

In 2019, the Georgia Section of ITE (GAITE) grew by 40 percent through OneITE, and provided more than 30 events for members to grow their industry knowledge, skills, and connections. The Section volunteered with more than 1,000 K-12 students to promote STEM and shape the future of the profession. Finally, the Section broke attendance records at Summer Seminar, their largest annual event.

The Georgia Section met and exceeded the criteria for the award and we are pleased to honor them as the 2020 Outstanding Section/Chapter recipient! Congratulations to all the members of GAITE!

The Georgia Section has been awarded this honor SEVEN times in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2009, 2018 and 2020. That's the most of any Section since the awards inception in 1992.…/aw…/outstanding-section-chapter-award/
