GEORGE CALLS FOR NOMINATIONS FOR WOMEN'S DAY

24 January 2004

The Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George today called for nominations for the Lismore Electorate Women of the Year.

On United Nations International Women's Day 2005, held on 8 March 2005, the NSW Office for Women is recognising the achievements and leadership of women across the state both in business and their local community.

"There are so many women whose contributions, successes and achievements encourage and inspire.

"Honouring women for their contribution to our communities is an important means of building the confidence and pride of all women, and encourages other women and girls by publicly presenting role models" Thomas George said.

Thomas George called on residents to nominate a woman from the community who they think has made an important contribution.

"They may be a teacher, nurse, a business woman, author, community worker or even a sports person, as it is also the Year of Sport and Recreation, Thomas George said.

"Nominations forms are available for the Lismore Electorate Office on telephone 6621 3624 or call into 55 Carrington Street (opposite Lismore Post Office).

All nominees will be invited to a presentation function to announce the Lismore Electorate Woman of the Year, who will also be presented with an engraved silver goblet.

An invitation will be extended to the winner to attend the Premier's Reception for International Women's Day alongside other winners from across NSW, where the NSW Woman of the Year will be announced at the Reception.
