Apply for the GLAAACC Business Evolution Program Today!

We are proud that we can offer this service and confident that we will have a challenge selecting a recipient from the pool of outstanding applicants, specifically the GLAAACC membership.  Interested companies must be able to participate for the full one-year term and must meet the program criteria.  If you believe you qualify for this program, please follow our user-friendly application process.

First read the BEP brochure which explains the objectives of the BEP.  Secondly, fill out the enclosed application and include the appropriate documents.  Next, you must develop then provide the "vision" of where your organization is headed and how you propose to get it there.  Finally, submit two copies of your current business plan with recent financial statements.  This vision statement is your opportunity to communicate your goals and objectives to the selection committee.  

The Business Evolution Program (BEP) Committee will review all of the applications and compile a "short list" of no more than three companies by February 2017.  A selection panel will interview the finalists and make a recommendation to the GLAAACC Board. At our annual awards dinner on Thursday, March 23, 2017, we will announce the selectee. From that day on for twelve months the selectee will be afforded access to valuable contacts, information and resources to assist the company's rise to the next level of performance.  At the end of the twelve-month period the BEP Committee will evaluate the progress of the company.

CRITERIA

  • Must be willing to commit to a two year membership with GLAAACC if selected
