Local Programs & Events
The Construction Industry Celebration (CIC) banquet honors the continued support of member companies, industry associations, and others that contribute to the success of our association. The CIC banquet is one of the Kansas City chapter's largest annual events which showcases our most outstanding projects throughout the year and is host to many well-known local and national speakers. In recent years it has also become a forum in which to bestow an award to local individuals, which is fashioned after the National Crystal Vision and Crystal Achievement Awards. The CIC banquet also offers members an excellent opportunity for networking.

Annual Bowling Tournament
The NAWIC "Super Bowl" Tournament has been a part of our chapter since 1998.
Each year we hold our bowling tournament on the Sunday prior to the NFL Super Bowl Championship (January or February of each year). It has proven to be a great success for networking opportunities as well as for having a really fun time!!!
As a professional organization, we rely on the proceeds of our bowling tournament to carry out our objectives for the construction industry. These goals include getting the message out to our community and our youth to consider careers in all areas of the construction industry, promoting the positive image of construction to the general public, and enhancing the educational background of construction industry professionals.
