Deadline Nears for Excellence in Quality Awards Entries

NRMCA is still accepting applications for the Excellence in Quality Award contest. A company must be a NRMCA producer member in good standing to participate and can enter as a company or a division. Applicants are asked to respond to a multiple-choice type application form that generates their scores. Companies or divisions that achieve a score of 75% or greater will be recognized at NRMCA's ConcreteWorks, scheduled from September 25-29 in Denver. The deadline for receiving completed award applications is Tuesday, June 30.

There are several advantages to participating in this award program, including:
1. It provides recognition to the companies that maintain high quality standards;
2. The award criteria can serve as an excellent quality improvement tool for companies;
3. Companies have used the award criteria for conducting internal quality audits; and
4. Companies that apply will be provided with industry average quality benchmark data.
