FHCA’s Silver Quality Award Workshop is a members-only program that will provide a full day of technical writing assistance for facilities pursuing the National Silver Quality Award. The National Quality Award Program is Baldrige-based, and applications require writing skills specific to the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program.

Taught by FHCA’s Quality Award Master Examiner and Baldrige National Examiner Koko Okano, this workshop will walk attendees through each application category and teach them everything they need to know to write a successful Silver Award application. Registration includes lunch, along with resources and tools to assist with self assessment and application development. Space is limited for these workshops, so sign up by December 1 to secure your spot and save $50 on fees.
