Distinguished Woman Nomination

Distinguished Woman Nominations are closed


Distinguished Woman recognition is given at every ECW Triennial Meeting. Every diocese is encouraged to select one woman for this honor whose Christian principles are lived out in both her secular and sacred communities.

A woman may be chosen posthumously. Current members of the National Board of Episcopal Church Women are not eligible for consideration. Typically, the ECW board or women's ministries council in a diocese leads the Distinguished Woman selection process.

The Distinguished Women for the 2015-2018 triennium will be recognized at a luncheon to be held in July 2018 in conjunction with the General Convention in Austin, Texas. (Details will follow.) In addition, each Distinguished Woman will have a brief bio and picture included in the Distinguished Woman booklet.

The deadline for submission of the biographical information and photo was February 1, 2018.
