BBB offering free seminars offered on completing the new Eclipse Integrity Awards nomination process


By Sheri Sword - Dayton BBB



DAYTON — If you’ve thought about nominating your business or nonprofit in the past for one of the prestigious Better Business Bureau Eclipse Integrity Awards, wait no longer. After consulting with award judges, past winners/finalists and community leaders, BBB has re-engineered the process, making it easier, more understandable and manageable.

What’s new? Some of the most notable changes include a minimum number of submission items set for each award criteria. Businesses must now submit an appendix, which eliminates some redundancy. And, the length of site visits have been extended to 45 minutes.

Learn about the new guidelines by attending one of the upcoming free nomination seminars. At each of these events, past winners will share their insights on putting together a nomination, planning a site visit and how they’ve benefited from earning the honor. Plus, BBB staff will walk you step-by-step through the newly re-engineered process. These seminars are a great opportunity to see how others tackled their nomination and build a strategy for your own. Seminars are scheduled for:

•Tuesday, Oct. 23, 3:30-5 p.m.
