PITTSBURG — It is that time of year again to nominate 12 women in the community who have served Pittsburg and the surrounding area well.

Nomination applications can be found on the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce website at Pittsburgareachamber.com. The application is on the home page.

Applications can be filled out and mailed, dropped off or faxed to the chamber. Deadline for nominations is October 16.

The nominees will be publicly recognized at a breakfast hosted by the chamber on Dec. 7 at the Frisco Event Center. Tickets availability will be announced as time is closer to the event.

The 12 women will have their photograph taken to be placed in the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce Women of Distinction calendar.

“The chamber is proud to honor 12 women each and every year that devote and an incredible amount of time and energy serving Pittsburg and the Pittsburg area,” Director of Marketing and Communications Josh Lowe said. “The calendar is just a way to say thank you from the community to these 12 women who give to the Pittsburg Area.”

The calendars are free to the public and can be picked up during the breakfast or at the chamber office after the event.
