Ever wondered about the Quality Award Program?

Here is what other providers are saying about their experience.    
Below are three ways in which you can get involved with the Quality Award Program: 
  1. National Quality Award Intent to Apply - November 15: Applicants who submit an Intent to Apply will save money on their overall application fee. No paperwork or application is needed. You can access help documents for the Quality Award Portal here.  Submit your ITA payment by logging in to the Quality Award Portal.
  2. Examiner Application - November 10: One of the best ways to understand the demands of the criteria is to serve as an Examiner. The Quality Award Program is looking for individuals interested in learning more about quality improvement and performance excellence to serve as Examiners. Benefits of volunteering with the program include in-person and online training on the Baldrige Performance Excellence Criteria, CEUs, opportunities for professional development, and networking with other industry professionals.
