What WE Do?
Columbus Chapter #86
NAWIC helps women take advantage of the opportunities in construction. Whether you want to embark on a new career, establish a networking base, be a mentor ormentee, make a difference in your community, continue your education or invest in great friendships, NAWIC offers a variety of opportunities — large and small.
Over the course of the year, our chapter hosts and participates in several events. The NAWIC calendar begins in October. Each month, we host a general meeting for our members and guests to attend. These meetings provide women the opportunity to increase knowledge of the industry, further their professional development, and network with women in the Columbus area. Beyond our chapter, regional and national host that allow members to meet women from the all over the country.
