The 2010 Anne Mackie Award goes to Nancy Shoemaker.
NCWU president Alison Kiser said, in announcing the awardee,
"Nancy is a strong advocate for women who is extremely deserving of our recognition. Nancy has been involved with NC Women United since 2001 and has been an invaluable resource to all those who have worked with her. She is also very engaged in the work of AAUW and many more of NCWU's member organizations. This is not surprising since Nancy is often the glue that holds our communications and coordination together as a broad-based coalition. She can always be counted on to work tirelessly to push the work of NCWU forward on the Board and in committees, manage IT needs, and to offer a helping hand to anyone who needs it. Nancy has been resource, mentor and leader for so many and I am delighted that NCWU can recognize her in a public forum."
After a career in mathematics and information technology, since 2002 Nancy has concentrated on supporting small nonprofits with web-based and virtual office systems. She came to NCWU through AAUW (the American Association of University Women) and is past-president of AAUW of North Carolina. She is a founding member of the AAUW webmanagers group and the Open Up AAUW network and is a supporter of several of the NCWU member organizations.
Nancy lives with her husband in Raleigh.
