Sponsorship Opportunities

Our attendees are diverse and come from all sectors of a community. They include leaders and decision makers in city government, county government, as well as education, health, economic development, nonprofit and safety sectors.  Some of the participants are being introduced to Baldrige for the first time, some are in the early stages of learning, and some are long-time Baldrige devotees.
