The Professional Women in Building (PWB) council is under the umbrella of the Home Builders Association of the Upper Peninsula and is the voice of women in the building industry. Our council is fairly new and formed in the Fall of 2015 and currently has 12 members. We may be a small council but we know how to get things accomplished.
PWB is a National Professional Women’s council through NAHB, promoting industry professionalism and supporting our members at the local, state and national levels by offering networking, educational opportunities, legislative awareness and outreach. Currently Michigan has 6 PWB councils throughout the state with one more forming this year.
PWB is a great way to network with other women working in the con- struction industry to meet like-mind- ed women. Our local council partici- pates in community activities and has fundraisers to raise money for female student scholarships for those pursu- ing a career in the building trades. We support the Home Builders events and often are seen volunteering at their events.
Anyone who is working in the con- struction trades can join out local council if they or their business are a member of the HBA of the Upper Peninsula.
