Chapter 63 has served the greater Sacramento area since 1962. We strive to serve the needs of women involved in all facets of construction.
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) was founded Ft. Worth, Texas, in 1955. Since its founding, NAWIC, an international non-profit organization, has grown to a membership of 5,500 women with more than 179 chapters.
As word of NAWIC spread, several foreign countries became interested in the cause to enhance the success of women in the construction industry. In 1996, NAWIC signed an International Affiliation Agreement with NAWIC-Australia. In 1998, NAWIC signed an International Affiliation Agreement with New Zealand and another in 1999 with South African Women in Construction (SAWiC). In September 2003, NAWIC signed an international affiliation agreement with the United Kingdom.
In its 51 years of service to its members, NAWIC has advanced the causes of all women in construction whose careers range from business ownership to skilled trades.
To enhance the success of women in the construction industry.
- Believe in ourselves as women.
- Persevere with the strength of our convictions.
- Dare to move into new horizons.
