WEO President's Letter: August 2017
One thing I LOVE about WEO: We recognize and honor our own. Feels good, doesn't it?
The WEO Spirit Award is a particularly cool way to honor members, because it is member-driven, and who doesn't love being recognized by our peers?
What is the WEO Spirit Award?
It is our way to recognize WEO women who stand out because they embody, exemplify and model WEO values, are positive, attend meetings, refer business, serve community, encourage and support us all.
How are members nominated?
Every WEO member is welcome to nominate up to five members (including herself), and the process is quick and easy! Simply submit the name of a WEO member you believe merits recognition via the handy link below. Please write no more than three sentences describing each nominee and why you believe she deserves to be chosen as the WEO Spirit Award recipient.
Use this handy online form to nominate those great gals: WEO Spirit Nomination Form
NOTE: Previous winners such as me (Ronnie Noize), Kibbey Rock and Nien-Wei Hsiao are not eligible for this award. See all previous winners, plus the President's Award winners here: Award Winners
How is the winner chosen?
The winner will be chosen during a special meeting of the Marketing & Technology Committee--and YOU can have a say in who wins this year! Join the meeting to assist in reviewing the nominees and make the final selection on Wednesday, September 6th at 6 PM in my office at the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, 1101 Broadway Street, Vancouver. This will be a 30-minute meeting; if you have questions, please email or call me at 360-882-1298.
When will the winner be announced?
The WEO Spirit Award nominees will be announced in our September newsletter, and honored at our September meeting. The winner's name will be a secret until WEO's fourth annual Red Carpet Awards Dinner, on September 20 at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, WA.
