Nominations Open For BBB Eclipse Integrity Awards

January 27, 2014

DAYTON, OHIO, January 3, 2014 - There are some outstanding organizations - businesses and nonprofits - in our community that deserve to be recognized. What organizations do you recommend to your friends and family? Think of the ones you interact with -- maybe it’s your home remodeler, a car dealership, the charity you volunteer for or another organization -- and nominate them for your Better Business Bureau’s Eclipse Integrity Awards. You could even nominate your own business or nonprofit. These awards honor organizations for their management practices, business relationships, promotional efforts and reputation.

The public is invited to nominate organizations by visiting or calling (937) 222-5825 or (800) 776-5301. The deadline to nominate an organization other than your own is February 3. The deadline for self-nominations is March 3. (If you’re self-nominating, review the nominating procedures on your BBB’s Web site,, or contact your BBB for the complete nomination form.)

Eclipse Integrity Awards will be presented to organizations for demonstrating trust and excellence in the marketplace. There are four award categories for businesses based on the number of employees. Your BBB also has two award categories for nonprofits, which are also based on the number of employees. The winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges and honored at the Eclipse Integrity Awards dinner on May 13, 2014 at the David H. Ponitz Sinclair Center, 444 W. Third St., Bldg. 12, Dayton.

Your BBB hosts information sessions about completing the nomination process for businesses and nonprofits. The seminar will be held January 9 and February 7 from 7:30 - 9 a.m. Reservations can be made by calling (937) 610-2270.
