The Chapter Key Award is presented on a biennial basis at the STTI convention. The 44th Biennial Convention will be in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. One chapter representative will be allowed to accept the award on behalf of the chapter. The accepting representative must have a paid registration for at least one day of the chapter awards' ceremony. Chapter Key Award recipients do not receive any complimentary registrations for the biennial convention. The chapter will be asked to provide the name of that representative when it is notified that it is an award recipient.
