You can already see her in your mind’s eye. She’s the advocate for struggling new mothers. She’s the educator who tirelessly serves her students. She’s the volunteer that’s always working until the floor is swept and the last chair is stacked. She’s the epitome of service. You already know you’ll nominate her for the 2019 Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon.
Nomination forms for the 2019 Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon can be obtained by calling 816-232-4481, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or visiting our website at ywcasj.org. Nominations may be submitted via email, fax, mail or hand delivery, but must be received no later than March 15 at YWCA St. Joseph. Any questions related to the nominations may be directed to Mindy Grooms.
Your nomination for a Women of Excellence award may fit into one or more of several categories: Workplace, Leadership, Volunteerism or Emerging Leader. In addition, you may nominate a business as an Employer of Excellence and local high school counselors will nominate Future Leaders for the luncheon.
Once the nominations are submitted, one woman in each category will be selected by a diverse committee of community members with a variety of backgrounds. In order to preserve an impartial award process, the names of nominees are concealed throughout each step.
On May 8, nominees will be invited to be recognized at a reception at the YWCA and are also invited to attend the Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon, where the winners of the awards will be announced.
This year’s luncheon will take place Thursday, June 20 at the Civic Arena, where the community will gather to celebrate the service and accomplishments of area women. Leaders of local businesses, educators and volunteers will be celebrated for their tireless work improving the lives of others.
All attendees at the Women of Excellence event will enjoy hearing from this year’s keynote speaker, Monique Holland. Monique is currently the Senior Associate Athletic Director for the Student-Athlete Experience at Auburn University. As a 1990 graduate of Central High School and a St. Joseph native, Monique personifies the heart of Women of Excellence. Her story will be the highlight of the luncheon.
Mark your calendar now to attend the Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon. Tables of 10 are available for $400, but individual reservations are also sold for $40, with reservations accepted until June 7.
Nominate your choice as a Women of Excellence today and we’ll see you on Thursday, June 20 at the Civic Arena!
