COY and IOY

The Couple of the Year (COY) program is to honor members who have contributed above and beyond to the betterment of the chapter over the prior year. If a couple is selected by their chapter, they may choose to participate to be recognized at the District, Region, and then International levels.

The Individual of the Year (IOY) program also recognizes individuals who (with or without a partner) would not otherwise be eligible for COY recognition. For example: when only one member has contributed to a Chapter, even though both are members, or if the member is single. The IOY honored by his or her chapter can choose to participate to be recognized at the District and then Region level, but there is no International level of recogniztion for IOY at this time.

Chapter members are nominated by their peers to be IOY or COY, and the Chapter Director makes the final decision on who is best deserving of this title each year. Once honored as IOY or COY for a particular year, you are always the IOY or COY for that year; It is not an honor that is passed on to the next recipient, it is a permanent recognition for their contributions to the group.
