Work with KyCPE
By serving on a committee or as an examiner, you actively improve your community, local and statewide economies
and your industry's business climate.
We encourage you to work with us and explore the opportunities to collaborate
with various time commitments and levels of engagement.
You are welcome to join a committee "team" if you have an interest in any of the following: finance, marketing efforts, sponsor and member recruitment, examiner or applicant recruitment, examiner training, conference planning & management, applicant training, newsletter article writing, external relationship management, or website maintenance.
Committees meet virtually, so you don't have to drive miles and miles to become active.
If you would like more information about committees, use the contact form here, and specify your interest.

BECOME an AWARD APPLICANT
All organizations can utilize the Criteria for Performance Excellence:
prior award winners have come from the Education, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Government, Nonprofit, and Service industries.
Organizations learn to use the Baldrige Excellence Framework through the award application process.
KYCPE encourages organizations to apply for an Award at any of four Levels: Level 1 is Interest, Level 2 is Commitment, Level 3 is Achievement, and Level 4 is Excellence. These four levels will take an organization from novice status (concerning continuous improvement) to ready to apply for the Baldrige National Quality Award.
The Level 1 application may be applied for at any time during the year, while Levels 2-4 require a January application (see Calendar)
