Become an Examiner
Message from the Baldrige Program Director, Dr. Harry Hertz
Each year, the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program seeks applicants for its Board of Examiners. The board supports and evaluates the performance improvement of all types of organizations—businesses, schools, hospitals, and nonprofit organizations, including government agencies—that are striving to serve as role models by applying for the Baldrige Award.
Experts from around the United States give their time generously and enthusiastically as members of the board. Once appointed by the Director of NIST, examiners
attend a comprehensive training course that has been named one of the Top 10 Government Leadership Development Programs by Leadership Excellence for three consecutive years
join a group of industry experts and leaders from all sectors in reviewing applications for the Baldrige Award
receive a recognition certificate honoring their efforts in support of the Baldrige Program
By becoming an examiner, you can make a major contribution to your own organization and to the national effort to recognize and promote performance excellence. If you believe you are qualified, are willing to make the commitment of time and energy, want to help improve our country's institutions, and want to benefit from an unparalleled networking and educational experience, please apply to serve on the Board of Examiners.
The Examiner Application Help Center
is open Monday through Friday, November 27, 2012 through January 10, 2013
