If your group is part of a Symphony network that has a recognition program (e.g. Columns for MAA and Old Well for UNC GAA), your activities automatically go towards your different levels of recognition using the Activity Type module on your Activity Editor, which looks similar to this:

You'll notice that when you come back to the activity, the small box that says whether or not it has been approved may be checked - if it is, this means that your national association liaison has approved the activity. If they have not yet checked the box, it will remain unchecked until they do.

Here is a video that shows you how to add an Activity and have it be considered for group recognition. The video uses Carolina clubs as an example:
