Welcome to the Excellence in Missouri Foundation

Chapters

Get the most out of your EIMF membership by attending local Baldrige Community of Excellence chapter meetings (additional meal fees may apply). By having local chapters present criteria related topics, Baldrige becomes accessible to the masses. Every organization in your community is encouraged to become engaged, from the city government to the schools, from non-profits to small and large businesses. If there is not a local chapter in your area, the Excellence in Missouri Foundation can help you get one started, so that you can share the benefits of Baldrige in your community! Contact us today for more information at contact.us@excellenceinmo.org or 573-659-1234.
