IGA's prestigious Awards of Excellence Program honors the exemplary brand-building accomplishments of our members. The program’s rigorous and challenging standards create a fair and equitable process for the determination of member awards.
Each Licensed Distribution Company is asked to nominate one IGA Five Star Retailer as a candidate for IGA International Retailer of the Year by November 9, 2018.
The nominee from each LDC will be:
Each IGA Hometown Proud Retailer will be visited in December of 2018 by the IGA Retailer of the Year (ROTY) selection committee, which includes IGA executives Doug Fritsch, and myself, as well as 2018 IGA USA International Retailers of the Year Gary and Terrie Baker, who bring a new level of peer review that we believe is the right approach for a retailer-led organization.
The IGA ROTY selection committee will determine which ONE of our IGA Hometown Proud Retailers will be named the USA International Retailer of the Year based on the criteria as noted in the ROTY application and LDC cover letter explaining why the retailer was chosen, store visit and retailer essay (see application for more information).
AT THE IGA 2019 GLOBAL RALLY: All IGA Hometown Proud retailers will be recognized in the following ways:
The IGA USA International Retailer of the Year will be announced at the Awards of Excellence Brunch, and honored alongside the IGA International Retailers of the Year from other countries (one each from the countries represented).
