I want to start by taking a moment to thank the Las Vegas Chapter and Regional Director Myrna Smith for
all of their hard work that went into hosting this year’s Forum. I am so excited to head to Vegas for a
weekend of brainstorming, networking and build upon our success together!
Our Anniversary and Awards banquet was held on April 12th and the event was nothing short of
spectacular. We celebrated our past and present accomplishments, honored our 2018-2019 award
recipients and danced the night away. It really is amazing to think back on all of the NAWIC Sisters that
came before us and the ways that our lives have been impacted because of their sacrifices. I feel so proud
to stand beside NAWIC sisters who recognize those sacrifices and continue to work toward a better future,
for generations to come. Thank you to the committee that put on this event and to all of those who
showed your support by attending and/or sponsoring.
I am so excited to keep the momentum rolling and finish our NAWIC year strong! At our May meeting, we
will be learning about the use of Smart Equipment and presenting the nominations for our 2019-2020
directors. In June, we will hold our election and are planning a workshop on Building on Your NAWIC
Success through Leadership, Networking, and Mentorship. From June 17-21, we will hold our 12th year of
Camp NAWIC. We are expecting about 150 campers so this will surely be our biggest year yet! We are so
thankful to the Committee Chairs, members, volunteers, donors and all of our friends around the San
Diego Construction Community who have and continue to help us make this event a huge success!
Writing this reminds me just how quickly my term, as President, is flying by. I am very proud of the eventful
year, our Chapter has had, thus far. I am continuously inspired by the ideas, efforts, and enthusiasm of our
members and couldn’t be more excited to see what’s to come! I am looking forward to seeing who will be
stepping into new leadership positions, in the year to come. If you’re considering it but are still on the
fence – DO IT!!! I promise it will be the experience of a lifetime… and I promise to be here, to support and
celebrate your success, in every possible way!
