GAINS Final Leaderboard - FY18

Tracking is done in-house by Illinois ASBO staff using Association software. However, you are ultimately responsible to keep track of your own participation and double check to make sure the points posted match your participation. Points are tallied quarterly and posted on the Leaderboard; new activity will not immediately be reflected. 

If you have a question about your points, you can contact Nicole Lee at (815) 753-9305.

How to Earn GAINS Points

To earn GAINS points, you simply have to participate in Illinois ASBO programs, events and committees! How involved you get is up to how much exposure you want in front of school district members. For example, participation as a speaker or committee member establishes you as a resource for school districts while earning you points.

Points are earned and tracked based on individual participation, NOT on a company basis. Therefore, companies with multiple members should strategically choose which person to make points-related purchases (see below) to earn maximum points toward a reward. Illinois ASBO reserves the right to change Exhibit Hall layout year to year. Earned prizes cannot be transferred or redeemed for cash or adjustments on accounts.

Tracking of points begins each year on July 1 and will be tracked through June 30 for awards redeemable at the following Annual Conference. (For example, points earned in July 2014 through June 2015 will bring rewards at the 2016 Annual Conference.) Points do not rollover; each July 1 members will begin again at zero points.

PDC Involvement
You must request to join and be approved by the Chair. Attending a PDC meeting or joining a group on the peer2peer network does not automatically add you as a PDC member within our records. On a periodic basis, PDC chairs are asked to review their lists to make sure they are up-to-date and everyone listed is an active participant. 

50 points

*These points will automatically be designated to the person within an organization that pays for the booth. Please inform Nicole Lee at (815) 753-9305 if you want to designate these points to someone else within your organization. Annual Conference-related points will be added to your total at the end of June. Other GAINS points are non-transferable.
