Welcome to NAWIC Greater Kansas City Chapter #100
"Everyone is welcome at NAWIC. Men and Women.
Work boots to high heels. Young and old."
-Robin Norris, 2017-2018 Chapter President
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 the group 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.
The NAWIC Greater Kansas City Chapter was formed in 1965, and continues to provide educational, leadership and community service opportunities to members and throughout the community.
In September 2017, we welcomed the members of the St. Joseph, MO NAWIC Chapter to the Greater Kansas City Chapter, expanding our reach throughout Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas.
With the growth of membership over the past few years, the NAWIC Greater Kansas City Chapter #100 is the largest chapter in the United States! We are proud of our many talented and diverse #WomenInConstruction and look forward growing even stronger!
