About the Awards
The AME Excellence Award may recognize multiple North American recipients who demonstrate excellence against the award guidelines and evaluation criteria. Any applicant that submits an achievement report based on the AME Excellence Award evaluation criteria will be considered for an award. A company’s achievement report will be evaluated by the AME Award Evaluation Team. For companies that score high enough in this achievement report review, a site visit will be completed. A site visit will generally last 1.5 to 2 days. Recipients of the Excellence Award will be selected based on the combined results of the achievement report review and site visit feedback.
