Eliza A. Cox Fellowship
Anyone may be made a member of the Eliza Armstrong Cox Fellowship of the United Society of Friends Women International, by payment of $25.00 to the treasurer of the local society, who in turn sends the money on to the treasurer of Iowa United Society of Friends Women. This amount shall be divided equally between the Iowa Yearly Meeting United Society of Friends Women, and the General Fund of the United Society of Friends Women International.
Members of the Eliza Armstrong Cox Fellowship shall continue to support the Society through annual membership apportionment and local Society responsibilities.
Local Societies may honor their members by purchasing a membership for one or more individuals. This membership entitles the honoree to wear a pin or charm, which may be purchased for a nominal fee. If you wish to honor a woman (or man) in your society or community who has given outstanding service to USFW, please follow these steps:
- Have someone in your society write a one-page biography outlining the recipient’s contributions to your local and state USFW and to other missions efforts in your community.
- Send $25.00 through your local treasurer to Iowa USFW Treasurer, Charlotte Mosher, 23385 McKinley St., Milo, IA 50166. If you wish to award a pin to the recipient, please send an additional $8.00.
- Email the biography and a photo of the individual (in color if possible) to Iowa USFW Historian, Jacque Wilbur, firstname.lastname@example.org or in the alternative send via regular mail to Jacque Wilbur, 18684 Erbe St., Carlisle, IA 50047. DEADLINE: JULY 15, 2017.
- The biography and photo will be added to the permanent record in the book, “Iowa Recipients of the Eliza Armstrong Cox Fellowship Award”. The biography will be read and the pin (optional) will be awarded at the next Iowa USFW Celebration of Service as part of the Iowa Yearly Meeting Ministry Conference. This year’s Celebration of Service is on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at Wm Penn University, Oskaloosa, IA; time to be announced in the Iowa Friend.
If you have questions about this process, you may contact Jacque Wilbur at 515-989-4129 or email email@example.com.
