The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), established in 1955, is a professional association comprised of women who work in all areas of the construction industry, from tradeswomen to business owners. There are more than 140 chapters nationwide, including Atlanta, as well as internationally. To achieve NAWIC's core purpose of enhancing the success of women in the construction industry, NAWIC provides construction education, service and scholarship for its members, students and the construction industry as a whole. Additionally, NAWIC's Atlanta Chapter, chartered in 1961, offers educational programs for adults, such as its blueprint reading course, as well as events that expose students to the construction industry. NAWIC Atlanta hosts monthly dinner meetings featuring speakers on a wide range of topics. To learn more about NAWIC and to register for an upcoming meeting, visit http://www.nawicatlanta.org.
