Better Business Relationships, Trust, and Respect

One of the biggest benefits of joining the NAWIC North Central is the community support you will receive. Each chapter in our region seeks to help its members reach their individual potential while fostering a culture of connectedness.

Embrace the opportunity to develop valuable business contacts

Welcome to Our Amazing Region!

As a NAWIC member, you will have access to resources and opportunities to get you where you want to go. We regularly survey chapter leaders and members to determine what is most important to YOU. We value your input about what type of educational opportunities and support would benefit you most. We are here to assist you in reaching your professional goals. Within our community, you will find a safe space to try on new hats, stretch your abilities and be the best you can be.

The North Central Region (NCR) of NAWIC supports the chapters in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. We welcome members from all sectors of the construction industry, and we are particularly well-represented with members working in manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics. Membership in the NAWIC North Central Region will help you develop and broaden valuable business contacts for yourself and/or your company.

Annual Spring Forum & Fall Conference

In addition to all the great events hosted by your local chapter, the NAWIC North Central Region hosts an annual Spring Forum and a Fall Conference. These provide excellent opportunities to expand your professional contacts beyond your own chapter and gain new perspectives from a wide variety of women in our region. We strive to present dynamic speakers and provide networking opportunities that are truly beneficial to our members’ professional and personal growth.

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events. We’re sure you’ll love it!
