You are invited to join us on Tuesday, September 12 from 4-6 pm…hosted and sponsored by Francini…for a special workforce development presentation featuring Nora El-Khouri Spencer, 2022 NAHB Woman of the Year. Nora is the founder of Hope Renovations…a non-profit organization focused on empowering women to pursue construction trades, providing a hands-on training program, with on-the-job experience with aging-in-place home repairs and renovations.

Presentation will begin at 4 pm…followed by a networking reception. This event is open to all GBA members. There is no charge to attend…however we do ask that you RSVP by September 7.

Education, Professional Development, Networking & Marketing are just a few of the benefits of membership in our Professional Women in Building (PWB) Council. Currently with 60+ members…it’s a great way to connect with other women in the building industry.

Council membership requires an active GBA membership. Annual council dues are $100 per council member…which provides local, state and national PWB membership. Find additional information, along with a link to join, on the GBA website.
