Two things must happen in order for those submitting to achieve recognition as World Class in a given category.

First, the program team must achieve World Class status according to the 'Characteristics of a World Class Briefing Program' document continually examined by the ABPM Advisory Board.

Second, the program team must demonstrate to the judges in their documentation that they have indeed achieved that World Class status. If both of the above was the case, jurors awarded a World Class award in that category.

Neither of those two things is easy, and not all programs who were candidates for these awards were recognized. For that reason, all of the programs that are recognized are to be congratulated.
