Doing "CAT 7" Right for Silver and Gold

Thursday, October 26
Hilton Orlando
6001 Destination Parkway
Orlando, FL 32819

1:00 - 4:00 p.m. 
Registration Opens at 12:30 p.m. 

This workshop will focus on Category 7 of the Silver and Gold National Quality Award.
This year, silver applicants will be required to meet the minimum points for Category
7 to receive the award. Since Category 7 is allocated with so many points, Silver and
Gold applicants cannot write a successful application without doing the “Cat 7” right.
Category 7 is the most technical section of the award application with minimum
subjectivity allowed for the examiners. In this workshop, Silver and Gold applicants will
learn how the Category 7 is reviewed and scores by the examiner and how to ensure
Category 7 will earn enough points to cross the minimum threshold.
