Manchester was taken by storm on 10th November as the long awaited launch for North West region of the National Association of Women in Construction (#nawicnwlaunch) took place at Albert Square Chop House for informal drinks, canapés and networking.
Our own Marketing Manager Jennifer Fisher became the latest addition to the North West branch of the NAWIC committee as of August 2016 and the board (pictured below) have been working towards this launch event to coincide with the Annual National Conference since earlier this year.
Jennifer was thrilled with the positive feedback from attendees; "It's great to have had such a great turn out for our first event, including support from our friends around the country. It's even better to hear that people enjoyed themselves and have lots of great ideas to throw in for our busy 2017 schedule!"
The event was kindly sponsored by Scape Group and Shine Bid Services, and was attended by over 70 people based in various sectors of the construction industry.
With the National Conference taking place at Trowers & Hamlins on Princess Street throughout the afternoon, the launch event was well supported by members from across the country, as well as those interested in becoming members in the North West.
