Information for Examiners

Beginning in the Spring of 2019, Communities of Excellence 2026 will once again accept volunteers to serve as examiners as part of the Communities of Excellence Recognition Program.  As volunteers, examiners evaluate and provide feedback to communities across the United States that participate in the Recognition Program. The feedback report is a key reason why communities apply for the Communities of Excellence Recognition.

There will be three application levels this year:

At this level the applications will include only the Community Profile. Applications will be a maximum of 10 pages plus a glossary of abbreviations.

Journey to Community Excellence

Approximate Time Frame:  July 15th to October 1st including three online video meetings.

Community Applications will include a Community Profile, responses to Category 1, Category 2, Category 7.1: Questions (1) and (2), and Category 7.4:  Questions (1) and (5).  The application will be a maximum of 17 pages plus a glossary of abbreviations.
