"Year-long, we encourage area businesses to be honest, transparent and responsive," said Angie Barnett, president/CEO, BBB serving Greater Maryland. "But, no matter how much we promote ethics, every business has a choice - to do right or do wrong. For that reason, companies that believe in self-regulation and embody integrity deserve to be celebrated."
To be considered for BBB serving Greater Maryland's Torch Awards for Marketplace Excellence, businesses should complete an official nomination entry atbbb.org/greater-maryland/for-businesses/torch-awards. Those who meet the eligibility guidelines will be contacted to submit an official awards application.
Representatives from BBB Educational Foundation Board, along with previous Torch Award winners, will evaluate applicants against other businesses of the same size.
BBB will celebrate local winners and finalists at its 2nd Annual Pillars of Trust Leadership Conference on October 16 at the Grand Historic Venue in Downtown Baltimore.
