On Tuesday 12th November NAWIC North East held their AGM - it was a great opportunity to reflect on the successful year we have had highlighting how the region is growing from strength to strength and also welcoming new faces to our committee!
A huge thank you to our 2018/19 Chair Sophie Ellis for a brilliant year, and our 2018/19 Co-Vice Chair Samantha Curtis - it has been fantastic to work alongside you both.
I’m delighted that I have been voted in as Chair for 2019/20, alongside Co-Vice Chairs Jessica Newton and Demi Hindhaugh. We, alongside everyone in the committee, will continue to push NAWIC in the region - where we aim to encourage more women into the construction industry and work to retain women in the industry.
If you would like to get involved with the work we do at NAWIC please get in touch.
