Who Should Apply? Baldrige Examiner SelectionThe Baldrige Performance Excellence Program depends on a volunteer board of experts who can evaluate organizations that apply for the Baldrige Award and are willing to represent the program. In selecting Baldrige examiners, we are careful to include professionals from a broad range of industries, sectors, organizations, and work experiences.
In addition, to fulfill one of the Baldrige Program’s basic aims—to expand the U.S. base of knowledgeable, trained examiners—we always reserve a portion of the board for new examiners. Because of these factors, and because we receive a large number of applications, we may not be able to select some highly qualified applicants in a given year. If you are not selected, please consider applying again the following year.
We select Baldrige examiners based on their personal qualifications. Examiners are not considered representatives of their employers or other organizations.
We’ll consider the following factors in reviewing your application.
To be a Baldrige examiner, you must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. If you are selected to serve on the Board of Examiners, you will be required to show proof of citizenship or your permanent residency. A list of valid documentation will be provided upon your selection notification. You will not be denied consideration or appointment on the grounds of race, creed, color, national origin, age, sex, or disability.
