We have the power to move women forward in this industry in personal, professional and trade levels.  We can make a difference in the lives of women that are committed to their construction career but feel lack of support and resources.   We can empower them and empower each other while we educate the world about construction careers and the many opportunities it has to offer women.

 One of the ways we can do this of course is to share NAWIC but we can also share the NEF courses with everyone that we meet.  These courses are not for members only.  Anyone can take these courses to not only enrich their lives but help them advance in their careers.

NEF is solely supported by sponsorships, Fundraising and donations. Your financial support educates others through various programs and adult education courses.   

Our Fundraising this year will be through the NEF Ladder Program ~ moving up the NEF Ladder helps not only promotes growth within NEF programs but also the Educational Opportunities that NEF offers everyone in the Construction Industry as well as K-12 programs to promote construction as a viable career.

We will also be asking Chapters and Regions to support our “Change Makes A Difference” campaign.

NEF is looking for Applicants for Board of Trustees positions.  Please contact me for an application form or they can also be found on the NEF Website www.nef-edu.org

If you have any questions about NEF programs, etc.  Please do not hesitate to contact me!
