AFLV Council Compass Awards Program  

The AFLV Council Compass program is a developmental program for councils that assesses operations, critical thinking, ability to address issues unique to the community culture, and new ideas and initiatives a council creates and sustains that make a difference.

DIRECTIONAL AREAS 

Council Compass will ask your councils to reflect on their achievements in four, directional areas:

  • Accountability: A council’s ability to follow through, manage responsibly, and expect high standards from the community it governs.
  • Collaboration: The ability to work successfully among the council, chapters, staff, and larger community.
  • Education: The ability to educate all council members about necessary, relevant, and progressive topics.
  • Innovation: The council’s ability to go beyond what has been created or achieved before. Critical and creative thinking that leads to cutting edge programs and initiatives.

Curious about the star level within the four directional areas that best aligns with your council's achiements?
