Monday Morning Coffee with YWCA “Women of Excellence” Awards Event


woe generalWomen of Excellence Awards Program Celebrates 15 Years: Nominations Due March 11, 2016

Who doesn’t love a great story? How about more than 40 of them to celebrate and honor the women who make our community shine?

This week, consider a woman in volunteerism, leadership or the workplace who has made an impact on the lives of others and nominate her for a YWCA Women of Excellence Award. Now in its 15th year, the successful event coordinated by the YWCA St. Joseph brings more than 1,200 guests together to honor the accomplishments of women across all roles and age groups. Held annually at the St. Joseph Civic Arena, the packed event features a guest speaker, a lunch meal and Women of Excellence Awards in set categories. The 2016 event is set for Thursday, June 16, 2016.

Like many outstanding events coordinated by nonprofit organizations, the real behind-the-scenes effort to make the day a memorable success happens in the months leading up to it. During March, the focus is about gathering nominations for women who have utilized their talents and abilities in unique ways. Nominations are reviewed and recipients selected by a committee, then prepared for insertion into a multi-page, professional program book that is a hallmark of the event and a keepsake for all who participate. Here at SJC Marketing, we are honored to donate our time to write these stories to help share each nominee’s accomplishments.

Nominations are accepted online or in print through March 11, 2016. Following the nomination process, the committee will work to coordinate the program booklet, social media information, sponsorships and a video piece to help share the story of the YWCA mission. As you see more information in the weeks to come about the YWCA Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon, consider how you might honor women who believe in being the best volunteers, coworkers, employers, students, family members and mentors they can be.
