The E&I Business Partner Awards recognize suppliers who exemplify true commitment and dedication to our membership community.
Nominees are identified by an internal team of E&I representatives, and are evaluated based upon a number of criteria including: the supplier’s dedication to new member acquisition; programs and level of service provided to members; member purchases and member satisfaction.
We honor each of these suppliers during the E&I Member/Supplier Mixer held every year at the NAEP Annual Meeting.
