The first month of summer is behind us and it was a great kickoff! Thank you for all who came out to finish the race with us at C&F Company. We had a great time seeing everyone face to face (yay! finally!) and had our largest turn out with 49 people attending! This is an awesome way to finish the race in what has been a fast few months.
We have finalized the jobsite tour coming up in July where we will celebrate being in the winner circle. We hope to have the same great turnout to show off what TW Frierson is doing. In August, we will not have a meeting due to Annual Conference taking place that many of the leadership members attend. However, we will be back in full swing in September with our installation of the new board.
I have started a new section in the newsletter for committee news. Each month I will highlight a committee and what they are doing to bring value to your membership. In October, we will be talking about signing up for committees so please read them and think about if you will be able to volunteer to be part of one.
Here are some things coming up!
July 8th- Jobsite tour sponsored by TW Frierson
August- There will not be a meeting as many people will be attending Annual Conference
Andrea and I hope that you continue to have a great summer and thank you for being awesome members.

Your Virtual Race starts when you are ready!
Participate in the virtual race by running, jogging, walking, or biking from any location you choose. Complete the race at your own pace and time it yourself. Pick from a virtual 5K, 10K, or challenge yourself to complete the half marathon. You can complete the race in one outing or complete it over the course of several outings. This is a great activity to do alone or with your friends and family. This is an honor system race, but you are encouraged to post race pictures to the virtual race group
This month's committee spotlight is Professional Development and Education. The purpose is to develop programs and projects to educate NAWIC members about the construction industry and to promote professional and personal growth of members. PD&E fundraises for our yearly scholarships and promotes education opportunity for members. They work with our regional and national committees to ensure education opportunities are communicated to all members.
This year our PD&E committee raised $604 for scholarships to women attending Tennessee schools by selling gift cards and wine. Thank you for all your hard work in ensuring scholarships are available to women studying for careers in the construction industry.
