The Professional Women in Building council is governed by a group of volunteer leaders who aim to connect, educate, and inspire others. Meet our 2020 board.

Our council’s networking events, educational outreach, scholarship program, and award-winning legislative advocacy efforts are just a few of the many ways we support homebuilding and give back to our community. Read our fact sheet to learn more about our council.
