2021 Recognition Cycle Calendar

For organizations to participate in the 2021 IMEC Awards for Excellence cycle, the Intent to Apply Packet is due by April 2, 2021. 

The full IMEC Award for Excellence application is due by June 1, 2021.

The IMEC Awards for Excellence provides a system for recognizing organizations at three levels that are representative of progress and growth toward performance excellence.  Award levels reflect the increasing maturity of a performance management system as defined by the Baldrige Excellence Framework.

All organizations applying for the IMEC Awards for Excellence must submit an application responding to the criteria in a document not to exceed 50 pages.  A team of Examiners will evaluate the applicant’s organization and  develops feedback and findings.  The Panel of Judges review these findings, select applicants for site visits, and recommend awards for applicants.

Application Writing Workshop

To decide if your organization is ready to submit an application, you are strongly encouraged to schedule an on-site Application Writing Workshop training session. This one-day workshop provides your organization the opportunity to further understand the IMEC Award for Excellence, the application process, and the Baldrige Criteria. It will assist your organization in getting started on writing an application, evaluating where you are in the organizational process, with tips and examples on how to get the  most out of your application and understanding key points of the criteria in relationship to your organization. This workshop is HIGHLY recommended for all applicants both new and returning.
