Baldrige Performance Excellence Group Chapters promote ‘performance excellence’ in all sectors of our community – education, health care, small business, manufacturing, service and non-profit. The chapter supports the Excellence in Missouri Foundation and the Baldrige National Quality Program. It encourages local organizations to apply for the Missouri Quality Award and/or the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Key benefits of these application processes include: accelerating improvement efforts, energizing employees, gaining an outside perspective on your organization, learning from the feedback process and focusing on results.

In 2010, Columbia, Missouri launched the charter BPEG chapter.

“I commend the Columbia community for its establishment of a community-based Baldrige Performance Excellence Group, chartered by the Excellence in Missouri Foundation, as a significant addition to the Baldrige enterprise...This is a wonderful model for further deploying the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence throughout the country and improving our national performance and competitiveness.”

- Harry S. Hertz, Director, Baldrige National Quality Program
