Next Steps and Award Information

We have created a Q&A document that addresses questions about the awards and process. Part of building and expanding this program is that we can continue to add Q&A as new questions are posed and new information created.

For your convenience, below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the Award categories, the nomination process, etc. If after reviewing the information you still have questions, please contact the Awards Committee at c/o We’ll get back to you within 48 hours.

Are EBC and EBI members able to nominate?

Absolutely. The Excellence Awards are open to the entire organization regardless of your category of membership. We welcome all members to be a part of this excellence program.

Are EBC and EBI members eligible to win all the categories?

Yes, the Excellence Awards are open to all members of the Evolutionary Business Council.

Can I nominate someone from outside the EBC?

No, the EBC Excellence Awards are only for members of the organization.

What characteristics and accomplishments are you looking for in an Award candidate?

The Award recipients are role models who exemplify an extraordinary commitment to public service and social responsibility. Specifically, each award has it’s own unique criteria. For example, the More Award is for the contributions that EBC members make to the organization and one another.  The other two awards are for the contributions EBC members make outside the organization. Details can be found above in the award descriptions. Award Nominees share their deep concern for others. We seek to honor those who have demonstrated selflessness, exhibited a commitment to service and the betterment of society, and who have had a significant impact on the lives of others in their community, nation, and/or the world. We particularly look for those whose business and approach is centred on serving others, as well as those whose efforts will last beyond their lifetime.

How do I nominate someone for an Award?

Simply complete the nomination form and submit it along with a written summary explaining why you think your nominee should be recognized, and the names and phone numbers of people to contact regarding your nominee’s activities. It is beneficial to include newspaper articles, letters, and any additional information to support your nomination. Nominations for are need to be received no later than November 1, 2018.

What is the Award nomination process?

All of the nominations we receive are acknowledged, reviewed, and evaluated. The Award Pre Screening Committee reviews every nomination received, and provides the Award Review Panel with a broad sampling of finalists. The Award Panel makes the final decisions. Both the Pre-Screening Committee and Award Review Panel are comprised of members across the organization.
