Awards and Recognition

Awards and Recognition

Net Impact Central is proud of our community and annually awards chapters who have gone and above and beyond. With only about 30% of chapters achieving Gold Status, we are excited about the combined impact we can make as we strive to do more together! Our top chapters compete for Chapter of the Year. We applaud our top chapters for helping us make Net Impact a stronger community.

Gold Status

Gold status recognizes chapters that go above and beyond in providing their members with opportunities to make an impact in their community, learn and grow as individuals, and engage with the larger Net Impact community. Gold chapters earn special benefits at Net Impact events & conferences, recognition on Net Impact’s website, and consideration for Chapter of the Year.

We recognize that this year is different and challenging for our chapters around the world. We will continue to assess the situation and will adjust the ways to earn Gold status as needed to meet the needs of chapters at the moment.
