Step 1. Nominee Selection

The Roundtables Peer Group program brings together smart, savvy, non-competing company owners to share experiences and help one another improve company performance. Each member belongs to one of the Roundtables Groups which meets twice annually.

At the conclusion of each Roundtables meeting, the members of their respective group vote for one exemplary participant to be named MVP of that meeting due to their demonstrated ability to implement significant and continual improvement in business performance, achieve superior results, demonstrate a spirit of generosity and sharing, as well as provide savvy insights to their peers.

The nominees for the Remodelers Advantage IMPACT Award are those Roundtables Members1 who have been voted MVP by their peers at the conclusion of one of the previous two Roundtables meetings. Please note: if you were voted MVP you must accept the invitation in order to continue onto the next step toward winning the IMPACT Award.

Step 2. Semi-Finalist Selection

At the conclusion of the 2016/2017 (Fall/Spring) Roundtables meeting cycle, the list of MVP’s is compiled to create the list of IMPACT Award nominees. The members who accept our invitation to join the running for the IMPACT award will answer this important question: “What does “Having an IMPACT” mean to you and why is it important?” in 250 characters or less. After we receive all participant submissions, the panel of judges will review and choose 10 semi-finalists from the selection.

Step 3. Finalist Selection

The 10 semi-finalists will submit a short essay describing the reasons that they should win the Award. Essays will be reviewed and scored by a panel of judges. The four highest scoring essays will be selected as finalists.

Deadline to submit: July 15th, 2017

Step 4. Choosing the Winner

Finalists will submit a 60-second video, outlining why he or she is the best candidate for the Award. The videos will be reviewed and scored by a panel of judges. In addition, the videos will be shown during the annual Awards Gala and the winner will be announced live!
