The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
The North Central Region was established during the 1959-1960 NAWIC year and encompasses Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania.
Monthly meetings, regional conferences and national conventions provide opportunities to build a strong communication network. This helps develop and broaden valuable business contacts for your firm through your employee.
