Maura Hesdon, regional director of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), Region 1, and a senior project manager with Shoemaker Construction Co. will host the 52nd Annual Regional Forum April 27-28, 2012 in the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.
The Region 1 Forum is held twice a year in various locations across the Region 1 coverage area including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Connecticut and Washington DC.
The April Forum, titled “Declare your Independence!” will feature educational sessions on topics ranging from Managing the Generation Gap and Dealing with Contract language across state borders to Strategic and Succession Planning. An update on the MAGIC camp program will also be given. MAGIC (Mentoring a Girl In Construction) Camp is a free, week-long day camp for junior and senior high school girls to introduce them to a potential career in the construction industry. Many young girls are unaware of the possibility of a rewarding and financially beneficial career in the construction trades or related fields. MAGIC is designed to give them real hands-on experience provided by the Philadelphia construction trades.
The Region 1 Forum draws 50-60 attendees from across the Mid-Atlantic Region. Attendees will also attend a Dine Around in Philadelphia. For information on attending, visit their website. BD+C
