The National Association of Women In Construction - NAWIC Greater Orlando Chapter 73 invites your company to become a Corporate Sponsor for the 2019-2020 membership year.
Join other companies who value the relationships NAWIC builds with fellow companies in the construction industry and our community along with the education, empowerment and mentoring programs our Chapter offers.
Our Chapter was chartered in 1962 and includes members from
Orange, Seminole, Lake, Osceola, and Brevard Counties.
We pride ourselves on our unique education programs, scholarship opportunities, and expansive community involvement. Your sponsorship will help us continue those traditions this year.
The education arm of NAWIC, the NAWIC Education Foundation (NEF), not only works with local schools to introduce children to the construction industry starting in kindergarten, but goes all the way through adult continuing education. NEF programs include Block Kids Building Block Competition for grades K-6 and CAD Drafting Competition. NEF also provides self-study certification programs for professional women with Construction Industry Technician (CIT), Construction Document Specialist (CDS) 2 part exam, and Construction Bookkeeping Technician (CBT).
Each year our Chapter also hosts a Construction Career Camp for high school girls with multiple local school districts. Our camp held in Seminole County began in 2010 and was such a hit that Orange County Public Schools contacted NAWIC in 2015 to host one on their campus. Girls leave the camp with increased confidence and with the knowledge of potential career options that are available.
We hope you will join us as we build relationships, educate and empower our members and future generations of construction industry workers. Thank you for your time and generosity.
Why your sponsorship matters!
Ø According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women comprise about 10 percent of the construction workforce today. To remain competitive, the industry must continually recruit and train women.
Ø According to the US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, the industry will have to bring in approximately 240,000 workers each year to replace the retiring baby boomers and those leaving the industry. One of NAWIC’s goals is to work with companies and associates alike to provide skilled women for the industry. We all must work together to ensure the future of a skilled construction workforce.
Ø NAWIC’s core purpose is to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.
Ø Chapter meetings, National Annual Conference, and regional conferences provide opportunities to build a strong communication network for developing and broadening valuable business contacts.
Ø Various committees such as Safety & Health Awareness and Professional Education encourage members to participate in their areas of individual expertise, and to offer enhanced knowledge and support from other members with similar specializations.
Ø With your sponsorship, the Greater Orlando Chapter can implement and maintain educational programs for the future generations through programs such as Block Kids, and Design Drafting. The chapter will also have the ability to partner with other organizations in the area such as the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), Habitat for Humanity, and Non Traditional Employment for Women (NEW)
Ø As an employer, your support of NAWIC as a sponsor or by enrolling your employees as chapter members will bring your company recognition as a supporter of women in the nontraditional field of construction. NAWIC is a 501(c)6 nonprofit association. Its membership dues may be tax deductible as a business expense.
