Deadline for Women of Achievement Is fast Approaching

11/7/11
The deadline for submitting a candidate for Women of Achievement is fast approaching. By December 15th all nominations are due to Headquarters. Surely every club member knows of a woman either in her club or in her town who has made a mark in the community. Perhaps you have read of a woman whom you don’t know personally, but you feel has impacted the community or state. The woman could be a Doctor, Dentist, Educator, a community leader or your next door neighbor. Consider submitting her name along with supporting material that could make her one of the five honorees at the Annual Convention on Monday evening May 7th, 2012.
FYI: Non NJSFWC Clubwomen can also nominate a woman for this award!

For questions or further information, please contact WOA Chairman, Marilyn Marion at m.marion@live.com or NJSFWC Education Chairman, Vivien Finn at vfinn@njsfwc.org.
