We are pleased once again to be working in partnership with the Women’s Center for Advancement (formerly the YWCA) in celebrating their annual Tribute to Women Awards Luncheon, which honors 11 amazing women, as it has done so now for over two decades. This marks the 24th year that the WCA has celebrated the contributions made in our community by such women of vision as Gail Werner-Robertson, our effervescent cover model for this issue.

For the past two of those years metroMAGAZINE has designed and published the official luncheon program and included it as a Special Edition in our May issue. It is a great pleasure and privilege for us to do so; this is very much in alignment with the underlying mission which, for over two decades, has guided us here at ALH Publications. It’s been exciting to see so many women that I personally know being recognized this year; also for the opportunity to be introduced to several wonderful women I did not know.

Our community has an incredible pool of women in leadership positions in both the public and private sector, complimented by an army of women who contribute greatly to building and sustaining the efforts of local businesses and philanthropic endeavors. These women give tirelessly of themselves in order to better the community we live, work and play in. As you read their profiles in our Special Edition, you’ll note that all of these qualities are present in this year’s group of honorees. I encourage everyone to attend the WCA Tribute to Women luncheon on June 7th at the CoCo Key Convention Center on 72nd & Grover.

This year we’ve introduced a wonderful new department: Destination: metro, and this month our visa leads to Village Pointe, with an in-depth view of everything this “lifestyle center” has to offer. Another new department this year is metroSHOPPER, and this month we’ve included a TOP Mother’s Day Gift Ideas guide as well as a TOP Spring Style Trends guide. Be sure to check out the advice from local retailers included in these handy shopping guides.

In “Fashion Fwd/Past,” we continue to celebrate our 20th anniversary as a publishing house with a feature on how the local fashion landscape has shifted over the past two decades. “Defying Gravity,” our metroWELLNESS feature for May focuses on the advances in treatments for varicose veins, while this month’s BRAVO! arts section spotlights the exciting unveiling of OUTSIDE KANEKO.

We have extended the deadline to nominate your favorite charity event for The BIG Event 2011 until June 30th. We have already received hundreds of nominations at SpiritofOmaha.com and we’re looking forward to obtaining more. Our selection committee will then review all of the nominations received and select the top five in 11 different categories. We’ll announce these in our August issue. Voting will take place through September 30th, and the winners will be announced at The BIG Event 2011 in late November. Visit SpiritofOmaha.com for this year’s location!
