The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. On May 15, 1955, the organization received its national charter and became the National Association of Women in Construction. NAWIC has grown over the years from the 16 founding members to approximately 5,800 members with close to 200 chapters. NAWIC has chapters in almost every US state and in two Canadian providences. NAWIC also has International Affiliation Agreements with NAWIC-Australia, NAWIC-New Zealand, and South African Women in Construction (NAWIC).
WHAT IS NAWIC:
N -- Network; work together as a unit. One voice is small; many are loud
A -- Act; mentor, teach; support
W -- Willingness; reach out to others; to push ourselves
I -- Invite; include a request to everyone you meet
C -- Communicate; tell what NAWIC has done for you and what it can do for them.
It is that time of year to start thinking about that special woman in construction. Each year in November at the Salute to Construction Banquet, our chapter honors 2 women in the construction business. The Rosebud Award is for a woman who has 10 years or less in the construction industry and the Vesta Award is for 10 years of more. We have attached the form and a scorecard. The scorecard is the same whether it is for the Vesta Award or Rosebud Award. You do not have to be in NAWIC to win the award.
