Call for “Communicator of Achievement” nominations
The deadline for nominating VPW members for Communicator of Achievement 2014
has been extended to February 10. VPW had no CoA for 2013, and we
certainly have members worthy of the distinguished award. We want to have
a CoA 2014!
The criteria are that
(1) the woman be a VPW member and
(2) the woman have contributed in significant ways to our
Cynthia Price, VPW’s 2012 CoA and immediate past president
of the National Federation of Press Women, was also honored as NFPW CoA 2012.
The award plaque for CoA will be presented to the honoree at VPW’s Spring
Conference in Farmville.
Nominations for the award can come only from VPW members. Don’t delay! Send a
summary of the reasons you feel your nominee is worthy – be specific in
substantiating your reasons. Attach relevant documents such as a bio of
your nominee. It's also helpful to include how the nominee has
contributed to her profession, news organization or other organization for
which she works.
Send nominations to Steger4@Verizon.net
or, via postal mail, to
Martha Steger, 13617 Twin Team Lane, Midlothian, VA
Submission of a name is not sufficient: the rationale for a nominee
doesn't need to be lengthy, but it must be submitted in writing along with the
name. One of the great satisfactions of VPW membership is seeing women
recognized for the work they have done and continue to do – for our
organization and for the world at large. Take time now to see that deserving
women are recognized.
