Conceived in 1994 and named after Bill Helms, the first National President of PCEA and one of the original founders, this National award was established to recognize an outstanding PCEA Chapter each year. This award is based on a point system in which various points are earned throughout the year, based on different criteria in five major categories. These categories are Chapter Membership, Chapter Procedures, National Involvement, Education & Scholarships and Computer Technology. Each Chapter entry is to be submitted in a professional manner using a bound notebook, providing backup documentation. The Chapter earning the most points overall is regarded as an exemplary Chapter. The first award was presented to the Blue Ridge Chapter, Roanoke, VA, at the National Convention in May 1995.
