Nominations sought for outstanding community women

Nominations for outstanding community women are being sought by the TWIN 2005 Steering Committee.

Since 1986, TWIN has honored more than 500 local businesswomen who've contributed to their workplaces or the community.

There is no cost for nominations, and application forms are available for interested nonprofit or community organizations. A nominee can be a paid employee of an organization, a volunteer who gives her time to the community or a professional who volunteers outside of work. The deadline is April 8.

There will be an honoree reception in May and a dinner in June, when awards will be given.
