The ISACA Chapter Awards recognize outstanding contributions by chapters and individual chapter members in fulfilling the needs of ISACA and its professional community. Each chapter award is presented in four chapter-size categories, and a group of volunteer reviewers will evaluate nominations for all chapter award nominations for a chapter size other than their own. Recommendations for recipients from each of the four groups of reviewers will be submitted to the ISACA Awards Working Group for final approval.
