Virginia, IOTA State's 12 Coordinating Councils serve as the LINK between IOTA State and its 72 chapters. The Councils are committed to strengthening that link through COMMITMENT and COMMUNICATION.

Each Chapter sends representatives to the Council in its geographic area. These representatives work cooperatively to offer members of their Chapters greater opportunities for the implementation of the Purposes of the Society.

In 2004, the IOTA State Coordinating Council Committee adopted a pin that was designed to be worn by all who have served or will serve as Coordinating Council chairmen in the Virginia organization since the inception of councils in 1973. The pin was unveiled and presented to the 2002-2004 class of Council chairmen at the 2004 Fall Board meeting.

Important elements of the pin include the three interlocked links in the chain that symbolize the Coordinating Councils as the vital link between IOTA State and its chapters. The letters CC in the center of the pin stand, not only for the Coordinating Council, but also for Commitment and Communication-- the major way in which the Council strengthens that link.
