Women of Note
Who is a person you look up to or admire for what they may do for you, your chorus or the region? How can we show them our appreciation?
Women of Note was introduced in 2016 in recognition of those members who work tirelessly for their chapters – often behind the scenes – and who deserve some recognition for what they do.
The inaugural Women of Note Awards took place in May 2016. Nine Region 31 Sweet Adelines members were recognised by their peers for their outstanding contribution to their chapter and region. These women have inspired and supported us with their enthusiasm, passion and commitment.
Now in its second year, we are ready to accept nominations from members to celebrate the amazing work these women do.
How do I nominate a Woman of Note?
Every year, each chapter and Chapter-at-Large (CAL) members can nominate one person as their Woman of Note.
To do this, chapters and CAL members must complete the nomination form (link below) and submit it along with a photo of the nominee to the Regional Membership Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th April.
One member per chapter will be accepted. Chapters should consult their members and put forward their nominee. CAL members can submit individual nominations and all CAL nominations received will be tallied and whoever gets the most nominations among CAL members will be the CAL nominee.
Who can you nominate?
She can be a member of your chapter or from another chapter, including CAL members. As long as they are a member of Sweet Adelines International in Region 31, they can be nominated.
To help you with your nomination, think of someone who:
- works tirelessly for her chapter or the region (both in formal or informal capacities)
- has a positive influence on the chapter or region
- is a great ambassador for the chapter or region
- embodies the motto “real woman, singing real harmony and having real fun”
To get you started, here are last year’s winners.
All Women of Note will be honoured on the Sunday morning ceremonies of regional convention weekend. Their profiles will also be displayed on the website and featured in the post-convention issue of Harmony Rag.
