Chapter Benchmarking

How To Collect & Submit Data

Chapters can now use one tool for chapter benchmarking and chapter awards. This tool streamlines the submission process for both benchmarking and awards and can give the chapter useful data to use in planning the year.

The Chapter Benchmarking submission form can be downloaded here. This submission form must be submitted to by March 31, 2023. 

Remember that all information is for the 2022-23 year and must be submitted no later than March 31, 2023, to be eligible for the STAR Program subsidy as well as an award at CFMA’s Annual Conference & Exhibition. Submissions are used for chapter benchmarking and to determine chapter health so it is important that each chapter submit its information.

Submissions are reviewed by the Chapter Resource Committee and final scores will be sent to the chapter for review. A portion of each chapter’s score is scored by CFMA HQ, this section will be scored whether the chapter submits any information or not. It is important that all chapters submit their information so the score does not look artificially low with only the CFMA HQ portion scored.

This score will be used to determine both Chapter of the Year and the level of the award earned for the year, which will be announced at CFMA’s Annual Conference & Exhibition. This score will also be shared with all chapters so each chapter can see how they compare to other chapters.

For a list of past scores, check out the 2015-22 Chapter Benchmarking Scores.
