Quest for Excellence Cancelled – Event Postponed Until April, 2021

To All Quest and Ceremony Registrants,

 At the Baldrige Program, the safety and wellbeing of our community is a top priority. We have been closely monitoring updates about the coronavirus (COVID-19). Out of an abundance of caution and to respond to concerns by Award recipients and conference attendees, we have postponed until next year the Award Ceremony and Quest for Excellence Conference and all affiliated events planned for March 24-27 at the Gaylord National Harbor Hotel and Convention Center.

View the 2020 Quest For Excellence Postponement FAQ's for information on the postponement of the conference and Baldrige Award Ceremony, including applying your registration fee to next year's conference or obtaining a refund.

Very sincerely,
Robert Fangmeyer, Director
