Thomas George calls for nominations for Woman of the Year

10 November 2006

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

“There are so many women in the local area whose contributions, successes and achievements encourage and inspire,” Mr George said.

“The 2007 Lismore Electorate Women of the Year award aims to recognise the achievements and leadership of these women in both business and the local community.”

“I am seeking the assistance of the community to put forward the names of women who they think have made an important contribution to their chosen field.”

Mr George said all nominees would be invited to a presentation function in February 2007 to announce the Lismore Electorate Woman of the Year.

“The winner will be presented with an engraved silver goblet and receive an invitation to attend the Premier’s Reception, on International Women’s Day 8 March 2007 (alongside other winners from across NSW) where the NSW Woman of the Year will be announced. “

Nominations forms are available from Thomas George’s Lismore Electorate Office. The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 22 November 2006.
