HIMSS Chapter Level of Advocacy Award

At the end of each fiscal year, Chapter Advocates have the opportunity to apply on behalf of their chapter for a Level of Advocacy Award. A HIMSS Chapter Level of Advocacy Award is presented to the Chapter as a direct result of their Chapter Advocate's leadership and commitment to health IT advocacy.
An eligible HIMSS Chapter may be awarded either a Presidential, Ambassador or Advocate Level of Advocacy award. Chapters receive a corresponding emblem to place on their website and use in Chapter publications.
