The Local Chapter Performance Awards Guidelines:
This program acknowledges Local Chapter activities in four important areas: fellowship, education, communication and outreach.
Drawing from her heart, Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel expressed what she saw, felt and experienced. After years of practice and receiving the encouragement of family, teachers and friends, Berta Hummel developed her own form of expression.
In the spirit of Sister Maria Innocentia, the M.I. Hummel Club and its Local Chapters were established. As an expression of their love of M.I. Hummel and Goebel groups formed to enjoy fellowship, increase personal knowledge, reach out to others and communicate their love of M.I. Hummel figurines.
To encourage Local Chapters to sustain activities consonant with Sister Maria Innocentia, the Local Chapter Performance Awards were developed. In addition, these awards are a way to formally recognize and materially contribute to Local Chapter work. And similar to the life of Sister Maria Innocentia, the
M.I. Hummel Club wishes that through this program each Local Chapter will uncover talent(s) and develop forms of expression and activity.
The program offers each Chapter the opportunity to receive at least one award and a certificate to use for free M.I. Hummel figurines. The award is based on activities performed within the Award Year, starting January 1st and ending December 31st.
The final deadline to submit all reports is February 1st. For accuracy and to streamline the process, the checklist forms (Located in Chapter 5 of the President's binder or click here to download the forms) must be utilized. Please refer to the following Program Guidelines for more information.
Please remember that the Local Chapter Performance Awards reinforce all the great fun and activities your Chapter achieved over the past year. As you have been keeping track of your activities, you will find that you have accomplished many of these goals; without even thinking about it! Call Membership Services at
