"As material for the construction of our building, I pledge the agility of my hands, the ability of my mind, and the integrity of my heart."  



President's Pipeline

Welcome to a New Year!  2020 definitely has been a year for the record books.  With a tornado, COVID-19, elections, and the Christmas Day bombing, Nashville and our chapter have endured a lot. I first want to say a thank you to all members and those contacts on our email list.  We want to keep our communications open with you and you are doing a great job in letting us know what you are needing.  If you know of someone who needs help, please don’t hesitate to send on their information to Ashley Spence or myself.  What better way to “Be A Driving Force” than helping our community!

We have 2021 set up to be a great year!  We have had to postpone our jobsite tour for January due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we are lining up a speaker via zoom.  Be on the lookout for the invitations.  We will also have a new/potential member orientation on January 28th for new member and potential members via zoom.  If you or someone you know wants to learn more about NAWIC, please feel free to join us.  February we have a great speaker getting lined up.  March is our WIC Week! Amber Hurdle, a leadership & personal branding author, will be our speaker for April.  May 1st is our Women Habitat Build.  Volunteer website will be up soon. 

If you have any ideas or comments about how our chapter can “Be the Driving Force”, I look forward to hearing them.  Let us know how we can serve you.

Member Spotlight

Name:  Almorinda (Amy) Samson

Company & your title:  Messer Construction Co. / Administrative Services Manager

Hometown:  Manchester, NH but moved to Clarksville, TN in August 2019

Birthday:   June 11

What do you love most about the construction industry and how long have you been in it?  I’ve worked in the A/E/C industry for 20 years but on the construction side for approximately 3 years. What I love most is seeing the transformation of a construction site from start to finish. How many professionals in other industries can point at the brand new hospital, college, or any other building in their town/city and say, “I helped build that”? These things matter to the people in our community which is why I’m always proud to tell people about projects my company has completed.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time? I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing with my dog Bella and my two cats, and taking photos whenever I can.

How did you hear about NAWIC and why did you join? I had heard of NAWIC for years through others in the industry but it wasn’t until I started with Messer Construction Co. that I decided to join. I’m new in Nashville and I believe this organization will help me network with others in the industry.

What advice would you give a new member or prospective member?  It’ll all depends on what each new member or prospective member is looking for but I believe the network of the organization is a huge benefit.
