Edward H. McCune Distinguished Chapter Award

mccuneThe McCune Distinguished Chapter Award is named in honor of Dr. Edward H. McCune. Dr. McCune was a Founder and our Fourth National President. He was both a physiologist and scholar of history. He maintained life-long involvement in Sig Tau and was the author of the Creed and the Code of Conduct.

The Edward H. McCune Distinguished Chapter Award recognizes the premier chapters in Sig Tau. It was first presented in 1966 at the 22nd Grand Conclave. Originally the award was given to just one chapter, but in 1967 it began being presented to a recipient and the four runners-up.

Early chapter winners were selected by applications, judged by a panel appointed by the Board of Directors. The applicants documented how their chapter successfully pursued the six Principles of Sig Tau.

The award is now judged by the McCune Metrics Scorecard. Using an 110-point scale, the scorecard measures chapter performance in recruitment, retention, leadership, scholarship, community service, brotherhood programming, risk management, and financial management.

The top scoring chapters are recognized as the Edward H. McCune Distinguished Chapter. The next four highest scores represent the Edward H. McCune Distinguished Chapter runners-up.
