President's Message from Christy Turner
I am extremely honored to be this year’s President for the 2019-2020 NAWIC year. I am earnestly grateful for the confidence my fellow members have placed in me, as well as the strong encouragement and inspiration I have received from my seniors and my colleagues, for whom I have the deepest respect, and from where I have derived the strength to challenge myself and perform better at each stage.
My focus as President will be our organization’s core purpose: “to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.”
While the construction industry has definitely evolved in a way that is improving for women, there is still a need for a focused peer network, relevant education, and increased mentorship options for women in the construction industry. This year you’ll notice a “less is more” approach to our activities – streamlining our calendar in an effort to focus on these specific goals. In addition, I hope to provide content and opportunities to engage not only those ladies just beginning their NAWIC journey, but also our long term NAWIC members. Each of us has value that they can share with other NAWIC members, and it is my hope that taking this more focused approach encourages additional participation and leadership across our chapter.
The road to our future is under construction – and we are all responsible for building it successfully.
Thank you for this great honor. I look forward to serving our chapter.
Sr. Project Manager
