Why Become A NAWIC Member?

Join the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) and unlock a world of opportunities in the construction industry. Network with like-minded women, enhance your technical and leadership skills, and find the support you need to succeed in this traditionally male-dominated field.

Member Benefits

As the premier Association for women working in the construction industry, NAWIC meets employers' needs by: developing and promoting industry values and culture; offering exposure to new skills and technology updates; promoting professional certifications, coaching and mentoring; generating publicity through community service projects; building a strong industry by promoting NEF K-12 programs to the future work force.


The networking opportunities NAWIC provides are endless. Members are encouraged to take advantage of monthly membership meetings where guest speakers serve to educate attendees about the changing climate in construction. Regional and National Conferences give members opportunities to meet and learn from other women in construction. Networking in NAWIC has provided members with new jobs, new careers and life-long friendships.

Your NAWIC membership will include a subscription to the Association's award-winning bimonthly magazine, NAWIC Today.  For more than 30 years, NAWIC Today has showcased the efforts, causes and issues of its members and the construction industry. Featured departments of the magazine include Association News, Briefs, Business World and Work Force. You can find out more at

Each Spring, the 8 regions of NAWIC hold Forums where members attend seminars and network with other members from their geographic areas.  The Northeast Region Spring Forum will be in Annapolis, MD  April 11th - 13th, 2024 at the Graduate Hotel.


On a larger scale, each August NAWIC offers one of the best buys in construction through its Annual Conference. Members attend educational seminars, meet inspirational speakers, and develop skills through workshops that recharge careers. Annual Conferences are set against the backdrop of exciting locations such as Atlanta, Reno, Anchorage, Nashville, New York City and most recently Portland, Oregon. The Annual Conference 2024 will bring us to Houston, Texas.
