Communicator of Achievement

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 VPW organization. 

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 23113-3713.

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.
