We are a self governing, not-for-profit group organized to promote and support women involved in construction related fields. NAWIC provides many benefits to its members including community awareness, professional leadership and educational programs, and national and local scholarship programs. Each year we meet for convention for the purpose of conducting national business. Each region meets twice yearly, spring and fall. Our chapter meets monthly for a dinner, program, and a business meeting. Each summer we award scholarships to students enrolled in construction related degree programs.
