This week, in the United States, Women in Construction are being recognized and celebrated. This is a National Association of Women in Construction-led (NAWIC) event. This year’s theme is to “Connect, Collaborate, Construct”. In other to connect and collaborate, we need to find communities of like minded people who want to do the same. So I’m providing a list of professional construction management and project management associations that people can join. (Each organization name is hyperlinked to their respective websites).
