Annual Showcase and Performance Excellence Awards

The year-long work of the Greater Rochester Quality Council culminates in the Annual Showcase and Performance Excellence Awards - an event that celebrates the many quality initiatives and achievements across our community.


The award process starts with a self-nominating application in one of three categories: Operations Excellence, Customer Excellence, and Team Excellence. Criteria and scoring are fashioned after the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards. A team of judges visit each award finalist to observe the use of performance excellence tools and practices, hear from leadership and people involved in the continuous improvement process, and see the results first hand.


Our goal is to discover, recognize, and help others learn from high performing organizations in the Greater Rochester Area. Award recipients are recognized at the GRQC Annual Showcase and Performance Excellence Awards.


The showcase features exhibits from leading organizations across the Greater Rochester Community, including all award finalists, strategic alliances, and Day of Quality participants. Each exhibit displays the unique quality journey - from problem to solution to results - with team members telling the story.

The 2020 GRQC Showcase and Awards Ceremony will be held on May 7, 2020 at Locust Hill Country Club, 2000 Jefferson Road, Pittsford, NY 14534.  The Showcase begins at 5:00 pm.  Please join us and network with others while you view exhibits from organizations and enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar.  Dinner will begin at 6:15 pm and will be followed immediately by the Ceremony and announcement of the Awards. 


The showcase is a great opportunity to underscore your organizations's commitment to quality.  Over 250 people will see your name prominently displayed and know that your reputation is tied to performance excellence.  Sponsorship opportunities are available at a level that suits your budget.


Perhaps you want to be part of the celebration but can't commit to  sponsorship yet.  Register for an exhibit table where you can be part of the action, provide marketing materials and share information about your quality initiatives and network with dinner attendees.
