MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is urging the community to nominate women volunteers from the region to be honoured on the NSW Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.
“Women who work in volunteer roles play a huge role in giving our community its pulse,” Mr Marshall said.
“Our community wouldn’t be what it is today without their often unrecognised work. The Hidden Treasures Honour Roll is a lasting archive to recognise the women volunteers who are so often the unsung heroes of our regional communities.”
“Hidden Treasures is our opportunity to say thank you to some outstanding women.
The NSW Government will announce the latest names to go on the Honour Roll during a National Volunteer Week launch at the annual NSW Rural Women’s Gathering, hosted by the women of Broken Hill on 28-30 October 2016.
“It’s important that we recognise and appreciate the valuable and diverse roles that rural women shoulder to support our community,” Mr Marshall said.
“I encourage anyone who knows of a valued volunteer in the Northern Tablelands community to recognise their contribution by nominating her to be included on the 2016 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.”
To nominate a Hidden Treasures volunteer, you can complete your nomination online (www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/content/rwn/activities/hidden-treasures/hidden-treasures) or download a nomination form and share a few paragraphs about why your nominee is worthy.

Nominations close Monday 1 August 2016.
