The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
To enhance the success of women in the construction industry
The Boise Chapter was chartered March 18, 1978. A minimum of twenty-five members is required to charter a NAWIC chapter -- Boise charted with almost forty members! We are a strong and vibrant organization, and we pride ourselves in bringing value to our members, their employers, and our community through our community service projects, our monthly professional programs, our member educational and training opportunities, and our scholarship program.
