Nominations open for Eclipse Awards

DAYTON — The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has opened nominations for the 2019 Eclipse Integrity Awards.

The public is invited to nominate organizations by visiting or calling 937-610-2277. The deadline to nominate an organization other than one’s own is Feb. 1. The deadline for self-nominations is March 1.

The guidelines for the honor have been newly re-engineered. The submission process has been streamlined, making it easier than ever for organizations to complete nominations. BBB will host a free, optional seminar on how to complete a nomination, Feb. 6, from 8:30 to 10 a.m., in the BBB offices, 15 W. Fourth St., Room 300 . To register, call 937-610-2270. Attendees will have the opportunity to review past winners’ entries. And past winners will be on hand to share how they tackled putting together their entries.

Eclipse Integrity Awards will be presented to organizations for demonstrating trust and excellence in the marketplace. They recognize organizations’ outstanding ethical business practices that enhance the confidence of their vendors, customers and peers. There are four award categories for businesses based on the number of employees. BBB also has two award categories for nonprofits, which are also based on the number of employees. The winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges. Award winners will be announced at the Eclipse Integrity Awards dinner, May 14 at the David H. Ponitz Sinclair Center.
