January 06, 2009

DAYTON, OHIO, January 6, 2009 - Have you raved to friends and family about a company’s customer service? Has a charity’s work inspired you when you saw the results of its work? Do you think your own company is top-notch? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, nominate the organizations for your Better Business Bureau’s Eclipse Integrity Awards. These awards honor companies and nonprofits for their management practices, business relationships, promotional efforts and reputation.

Nominations can be made by visiting Or, call (937) 222-5825 or (800) 776-5301. The deadline to nominate an organization other than your own is February 2.

Eclipse Integrity Awards are presented to four businesses and one nonprofit for demonstrating trust and excellence in the marketplace. There are five award categories: four size categories for business entries (1-20 employees, 21-50 employees, 51-100 employees and over 100 employees) and a separate category for nonprofits.

The winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges and honored at the Eclipse Integrity Awards dinner at the Schuster Performing Arts Center on May 12, 2009.

Your BBB hosts an information session about completing the nomination process. The seminar will be held February 10 from 7:30 - 9 a.m. at the United Way Building, 184 Salem Ave., Dayton. Reservations can be made by calling (937) 222-5825 or (800) 776-5301.
