Member for Narracan Gary Blackwood is calling for local nominations to the 2016 Victorian Honour Roll of Women (the Honour Roll).
Since its commencement in 2001, the Honour Roll has acknowledged and celebrated the outstanding achievements of 562 Victorian women who have contributed to change across a broad spectrum of passions and interests.
“In my work across the Narracan electorate I meet many remarkable women, who through their leadership and commitment are making lasting contributions to their regional and rural communities,” Mr Blackwood said.
"We have a great depth of talent in many fields of endeavour and the Honour Roll is an excellent initiative to ensure these women receive the recognition they deserve,” he said.
The successful nominees will be announced at a special event in March 2016, to coincide with International Women’s Day celebrations.
Nominations are open for the following categories:
- Police/Emergency Services
- Business Industry
- Human Rights/Law
- Prevention of Family Violence
- Community Advocacy
- Indigenous Affairs

Nominations close at 5pm on Friday 21 August 2015.
