Hello NAWIC Ladies! Happy “almost” Spring time! It is getting closer….all the signs are here!
Wow…this has been a busy couple of months for NAWIC and WIC week is still right around the corner. There are a number of opportunities for you to get involved and spend some quality time with your NAWIC sisters!
In case you haven’t heard (because you live under a rock) NAWIC was just in the Sunday edition of the Kansas City Star! Why, you may ask? Because BLOCK KIDS was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who volunteered and supported this year’s Block Kids
event. We had over 80 kids there enjoying the trades fair and
67 participated in the building competition!
A special thanks to Alise Martiny, The Builders’ Association and The Heavy Constructors for all of their hard work and support! This year we had Bricklayers and Tile Setters, Carpenters, Cement Masons and Painters. The kids had a blast with all of these trades! Between you and me….I think the trades really had a great time too.
Our grand prize winner was 2nd grader Maria Matulis! She really impressed the judges with her project as well as her enthusiasm!!! Congratulations Maria and enjoy your family pass to The Kansas City Zoo!!!
We are very fortunate here in Kansas City to have such a wonderful group of NAWIC Girls! Take time out this coming year and do one thing for NAWIC…I promise you won’t regret it! AND….you won’t be able to stop at just one!
2010 - 2011 Corresponding Secretary

A good leader is created through a process of test and trials. A good leader was not born that way. Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and
experience. A good leader is always looking for improvement. To lead is to influence others by making decisions for a group.
I believe there are 5 keys to becoming a good leader.
NAWIC trains leaders. I truly believe that NAWIC has improved my leadership skills and that has been the biggest asset I have personally brought back to my company as an employee. NAWIC provides a safe place to grow and practice being a leader. I always relate it back to my career. If I cannot be a good leader at NAWIC how am I to be a leader of a whole jobsite? Through NAWIC leadership opportunities, my communication skills have improved, I have become more outspoken and have learned more about myself.
Everyone has the opportunity to be a NAWIC leader. Start by setting an example and participate in the nominating committee’s survey. Volunteer your services and improve your own leadership!
The nominating committee is taking nominations for the first time ever through survey monkey an online service that will allow us to transport and organize information efficiently through the
internet. There will be no need to print forms and send them back.
Take your survey now and be a leader for NAWIC!
