This Award bears the name of a man who encouraged attendance at the District Meetings as a means to reach the small system operator. The Indiana Section also encourages attendance at the District Meetings and in the spirit of competition, recognizes that District in the Section with the highest percentage increase in attendance over the previous calendar year.

To qualify, each District submits their actual attendance rosters to the Awards Committee Chair for both the Spring and Fall District Meetings. These attendance numbers are compared to the previous years total.

The District with the highest increase in attendance will remain secret until announced at the Awards Luncheon at the Annual Section Meeting. The name of the District and year will be placed on the District Achievement Award plaque.
