NAWIC Incoming Board Retreat, August 2016

The writings on these giant post-its may not look like much, but after 12 intense hours of strategic planning, the NAWIC LA incoming board has a plan for the upcoming 2016-2017 year.

From our current presence on social media and online to identifying subjects that women across the construction industry would be interested in, it was definitely an intense and unforgettable experience. After identifying our current realities and desired outcomes, our 7-member incoming board had a lot to say and a lot to contribute about how and why we should try hard to empower our current chapter.

This year is very special to our local chapter as we celebrate 55 years in Los Angeles. We've identified the 2016-2017 year motto as "Stronger Together." Enhancing the success of women in the construction industry, we believe that when we create a universal platform where women from various careers in construction are able to come together, integrating our technical abilities and our experiences, we're all able to contribute in unique ways. Here, we're working together to be stronger.

Needless to say, you are reading this entry as a result of our very successful board meeting and encourage you to continue to visit us.
