Nominations are being accepted for the 2013 Women of the Year Awards, a program of the Brockton Commission on Women’s Issues. Nominees must be 16 or older, city residents, and women who have made a significant contribution outside of work in the Brockton community within the last year. “So much of the positive work being done in our city is done by people who are invested in our city, who are committed to our city, and who care about moving Brockton forward,” said Mayor Linda M. Balzotti. Forms are available at www.brockton.ma.us. Nominations are due no later than Feb. 22, and recipients will be honored at the annual breakfast on March 23. For more information, contact Chairwoman Patricia Foley at 508-345-9029.
