As the Baldrige Program winds down from yet another great year, we can’t help but think of all the contributions and support we enjoy from across the entire Baldrige community. Without your active participation, we could not update and maintain the Baldrige Excellence Framework, develop realistic case studies, efficiently train hundreds of volunteer examiners, evaluate and provide actionable feedback to organizations that are striving to achieve sustainable excellence, identify and celebrate role models for the U.S. and beyond, host our Quest conference and share best practices from all sectors of the economy, and provide an exceptional leadership development program, the Baldrige Executive Fellows.

It is our sincere hope that every one of you will find the time this holiday season to enjoy family and friends, and know that your friends in the Baldrige Program are thinking of you with great appreciation.
