League of Railway Industry Women seeks nominees for 'Outstanding Woman of the Year'


The League of Railway Industry Women (LRIW) is seeking nominations for its 2012 "Outstanding Woman of the Year" award.

Any woman who works in the North American rail industry — any "unsung hero" who deserves to be recognized for her service," as an LRIW official put it — is eligible to receive the award, which is co-sponsored by Progressive Railroading.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the home page (righthand side) of the LRIW's website: (Note: If the form says "2011," that's OK. It'll work for 2012 nominations, according to the LRIW.) Completed forms should be emailed to and
Nominations will be accepted until Aug. 1. The winner will be recognized at LRIW's annual luncheon in Chicago during the Railway Supply Institute Inc.’s Annual Convention and Technical Conference of the Coordinated Mechanical Committees, which will be held Sept. 23-25.
