NAWIC Invites YOU to show your support for the 2019 PNW Region Spring Forum

 

Each year a Regional NAWIC Chapter is selected to host the PNW Region Spring Forum – a place for women to network and learn together.  The Pacific Northwest Spring Forum is a 2-day event attended by women from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Northern California, Northern Nevada and Guam.  Being a Forum host is not something to be taken lightly because the bar has been set so high by past hosts!  NAWIC’s Puget Sound Chapter has formed an awesome committee of determined women who have upped their creativity game and designed an event that will inspire women to be their best selves in an industry they love.  On behalf of NAWIC, we hope you will consider supporting the Spring Forum, which brings together smart, talented women making the construction industry a better place.
