LRIW solicits board nominations

The League of Railway Industry Women (LRIW) is seeking nominations for four three-year board positions to begin in fall.

The positions are for scholarship chair, membership chair, awards chair and director. The nomination deadline is June 16, LRIW officials said in a press release.

"We are very excited to once again open these opportunities to women within the railroad industry," said LRIW President Jodi Heldt.

LRIW's board is composed of 15 female industry professionals from across the United States and Canada. Four board members govern the executive committee.

"The LRIW was founded on the ideology that women in the railroading industry, no matter their professional level, have access to leadership positions where they can contribute to the industry, network, make a difference and grow professionally," said Heldt. "As the organization grows, we're seeking dynamic, talented women to continue our success."

Interested applicants can visit the organization's website for more information, or contact Mary Schroll, LRIW parliamentarian.

The LRIW 2017 Annual Conference will be held Sept. 18-19 in conjunction with Railway Interchange 2017 in Indianapolis.
