About our Chapter
With the booming economy in Northwest Arkansas, the local construction industry has been growing at an impressive pace. With this intense growth came a need to provide a resource to the area women in our industry. It was a result of a local NAWIC chapter. The initial interest meeting had over 125 women in attendance followed by our Chapter Charter Ceremony where over 30 women joined immediately.
Our chapter continues growing and elevating women in construction. If you are part of the construction industry in Northwest Arkansas, please join us!
