The YWCA Women of Distinction Awards

The personal reward of serving people in public office is more than enough recognition for those of us elected to the House of Commons; the Legislature or to City Councils or School Boards. However it is still a great honour when an organization as important to our community as the YWCA Metro Vancouver advises you that you are under consideration for a special award.

The YWCA Women of Distinction Awards is the signature event recognizing the contributions of women from all walks of life. Since 1984 more than 373 outstanding women have been honoured for their commitments to their community.

I am especially appreciate to all those who nominated me for an award in the ‘Non-Profit and Public Service’ category. A total of 83 outstanding women have been nominated for awards in each of a number of categories including Entrepreneurship; Environmental Sustainability; Arts & Culture; Business and Professional; Community Building; Education; Training and Development;  and Health, Wellness and Athletics

The annual YCWA Women of Distinction Awards Banquet is on Tuesday May 28th in Vancouver. For more information about all the nominees and the event visit the YWCA Women of Distinction website. Again I would like to express my appreciation to the YWCA and to all my thoughtful supporters.
