NAWIC Today Jan. Feb.: Meet the Committees

The National Professional Development & Education (PD&E) Committee’s mission is to be the resource for sharing the best, most engaging, most timely and most on-brand educational programs for chapters across the country. We do this through our core purpose– to provide year-round educational opportunities to all members. Our committee is made up of the national committee chair, co-chair and the region committee chairs. We meet quarterly to discuss successes and challenges our chapters and regions are facing and brainstorm on how to help them. The PD&E Committee holds ten webinars throughout the year. In October, we focused on Legal and Accounting Concerns for Women-Owned Businesses with Sarah Osborne (Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, LLP) and Kate Fluker (BMSS, LLC). For November, we collaborated with the Emerging Professionals committee to bring Danielle Hoeltzel with Express Employment Professionals. Danielle showed us the importance of creating and maintaining our Personal Brand. January will focus on Construction Suicide Awareness & Prevention with Greg Sizemore, Associated Builders & Contractors Vice President.

Remaining webinars for the year are:

Building a Better Story by Rebecca P. Murray Building a Better Presentation by Rebecca P. Murray

Tools of the Trades from a Rockstar Tool Gal by Makita Tools Creating an Exceptional Client Experience by Tina Phillips The 3 A's of Recruiting and Retaining a Sustainable Workforce by Allison Jencson & Jessica Jacobsen In addition to our webinars, we are updating our committee page on the national website. We are adding contact information, links to upcoming and archived webinars and Programs in a Box, and Leadership Book Club information. We will continue to add content to keep the page up to date and relevant. Lastly, we are working hard to create a national list of vetted speakers for our regions and chapters to refer to. We will start with in-house talent and eventually expand to outside the organization. This ties right in with our mission to be a resource to our chapters. 16.
