Quota International of Taree's Nancy Boyling has been awarded the international distinction of volunteer of the year.
Nancy joined Quota in 1993 and has served on more than one occasion in all executive positions. She is now completing her second year as president.
"Her innovative thinking has resulted in many successful fundraising events and inspires all members to become involved," vice president Judy Cluss said. "She has such positive energy, she is an inspiration not only to the club members but to the community at large.
"Nancy is an exceptional leader, she has unified our club, welcomed many new members bringing fresh ideas, enthusiasm and a sense of purpose and value to our club. As a result we have more power to serve the community."
Nancy was born, raised, schooled, worked and raised her family in the Wingham /Taree district so her bonds are strong, Judy said.
"She is an excellent organiser and plans down to the last detail."
Last year Nancy was one of the organisers of the Red Umbrella Project which raised $14,700 for the wives and children of the drought stricken Walgett farmers, she inspires us to continue our common journey of shared Quota Service.
"Congratulations Nancy Boyling, you are certainly an exceptional leader and a worthy recipient of this prestigious award."
