Midland Arden Region Inspirational Woman Award 2017


Inspirational Woman Award 2017

Dear Midland Arden Clubs,

Once again we are looking for an ‘Inspirational Woman’ who reflects the principles of Soroptimism within her community or her working life/role, but is NOT yet a Soroptimist!  She may be working with you in a voluntary or statutory capacity, she may be involved in one of your projects; or have even been one of your speakers.  Or she may be one of the many women that we come across who is selflessly working to support women and girls in your area.

We would like to offer the opportunity for each Club in the Region to nominate one candidate. Each Club may establish their own criteria for selection of their candidate and must gain the candidates acceptance of their nomination.

It is hoped that this award can be used to give maximum publicity to SI Midland Arden and your own club, and potentially generate interest in membership of Soroptimist International for your club.

 

Nominations should be sent to Past President Ann Keepax @ annkeepax@yahoo.co.uk  by the end of August 2017 together with the entrance fee of £5.00. 

Nomination forms will be sent to each Club President/Secretaries along with this letter.

 

Each candidate can be invited, as your guest to the 23rd September, 2017 Regional Meeting and AGM.  The nominating Club will be asked to give a short summary (5 minutes with a 1 minute warning) of why they have nominated their candidate. It will help the judges if your candidate can come along to the meeting as they can clarify any point they are struggling with.

 

The final judgement will be with a panel of three independent judges, including a representative from Midland Chase.

 

The Award will be presented at the AGM meeting on 23rd September, 2017.

 

The Prize

There will be an appropriate trophy prize for the winner.

Each club will need to fund the lunch for their candidate and pay a £5.00 entrance fee.
