The Career Recognition Program was designed to recognize women who have overcome challenges or had an exceptional achievement in their lives, careers or while volunteering.
All Career Recognition candidates must meet the following criteria to be eligible:
- Membership in good standing of a Chapter of New York State Women, Inc. at the time of competing at the State level.
- No age requirements.
- Able to document, in your personal life (work or volunteering):
A challenge you have overcome.
An advancement or exceptional achievement.
- Present a five minute speech on your challenge, advancement or achievement for which you are seeking recognition.
In my everyday travels, while waiting in line at the post office, bank, supermarket or at a bus stop, I have engaged in conversation with many women who have told me their life stories.
Local Chapter Career Recognition Chairs and members, look around you, listen with an open mind. Be prepared to discuss the advantages of being a member of New York State Women, Inc., present them with some literature, ask if they would like to participate in the Career Recognition Program. In addition, you might mention not only the recognition award but the monetary award presented to the winners. First Place $500.00, Second Place $300.00, Third Place $200.00.
I challenge each and every Chapter to have a candidate compete at the annual conference.Keep in mind, that all forms and applications must be received by no later than May 1st, 2015.
