Lighting the way to Excellence.


The future is foggy, and Baldrige recipients continue to push forward with agility, innovation, and resilience. Hear how they are leveraging the Baldrige framework to put improvement in the foreground, while responding to ever-changing challenges. Learn real-world insights from these award recipients and other thought leaders as they inspire you to light the way to excellence for your organization. 


We are excited to welcome you in person to sunny San Diego on October 19th and 20th for the 2022 Baldrige Fall Conference!  The conference will feature presentations from national and state/regional Baldrige Award recipients --including the 2021 Baldrige recipients -- sharing their proven performance management practices and real-world insights.  Catch up with Baldrige friends, make new connections, and explore San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter.   


Deepen your understanding of Baldrige with pre-conference workshops on Wednesday, October 19th. Begin your journey with Pattie Skriba and the always popular “Getting Acquainted with Baldrige”.  Already acquainted with Baldrige? Take the next step with Michael Garner to “Move from Interest to Action”.  Join Edwin Boon as he facilitates a fun, interactive production and services game using LEGOs to apply “The Power of Lean Six Sigma in a Baldrige Journey”.  Or take a field trip to the two-time Baldrige recipient Charter School of San Diego to see what “Baldrige in the Classroom” looks like.


Attend the Conference on October 20th to learn from Baldrige recipients.  Hear from leaders of communities and organizations in all sectors of the economy during two leadership panels, more than 15 concurrent sessions, and a Keynote presentation by Nick Macchione, Director & Deputy Chief Administrative Officer, Health and Human Services, San Diego County.  View the full agenda for more information on speakers and topics.
