Hero and Rising Star Nominations
Being Accepted by Women's Alliance
Women's Alliance
The Women's Alliance of the Arlington Chamber is seeking nominations for their Hero and Rising Star Awards. The Hero Award acknowledges that women offer a unique approach to leadership, which involves connecting and collaborating to effect change and influence, often without position or authority.  The Hero Award will recognize a woman with demonstrated leadership capabilities who has the desire and commitment to make a greater contribution within our community by her pursuit, courage, enthusiasm, and zeal. The Rising Star portraits the same characteristics earlier in her career.

Please click the links below to download each nomination form.
Both the Hero & Rising Stars will be recognized at the 5th Annual Inspired Women Luncheon on October 23, 2015. Click here to register or sponsor the luncheon.
