Alaska Nets SCTE Chapter Of Year Honor

The Alaska Chapter of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers has again been named the organization's Chapter of the Year, recognized for its high level of excellence demonstrated throughout 2014, the SCTE announced Monday. 

The chapter achieved the same honor for its 2013 performance. The SCTE Alaska Chapter is based in Anchorage and is led by chapter chairman Markus Kofoid, OSP design engineer with GCI Communications.

SCTE Chapters provide local networking, professional development, and SCTE certification opportunities to SCTE current and prospective members in more than 70 locations around the world.

SCTE honored its best chapters based on 2014 performance during the 14th Annual SCTE Chapter Awards Dinner last week in St. Louis, as part of SCTE Chapter Leadership Conference (CLC) 2015.

SCTE also presented awards for second-through eighth-place Chapter of the Year: Razorback (second); Golden Gate (third); Llano Estacado (fourth); San Diego (fifth); Dakota Territory (sixth); Crystal Coast (seventh); and New England (eighth).

The Most Improved Chapter of the Year honors went to Dixie.

The annual SCTE Chapter Awards also include the Compliance, Recruitment, Striving for Excellence, and Professional Development awards; a Most Improved Chapter in each of those categories is also honored. The winning chapters were:

  • Compliance Award: Alaska, Golden Gate, and Razorback (tie); Most Improved: Crystal Coast
  • Recruitment Award: Mount Rainier; Most Improved: Crystal Coast
  • Striving for Excellence Award: Alaska; Most Improved: Great Valleys
  • Professional Development Award: Alaska; Most Improved: Shasta/Rogue

Additionally, SCTE presented a Chapter Achievement Certificate to three chapters: Cascade Range, Piedmont, and Southern California.

SCTE Chapter Awards are earned based on an objective points system. The SCTE Chapter Member of the Year Award, which involves a traditional nominations process, will be announced in the near future, SCTE said.
