Recently-Formed Partnership Between CMAA and NAWIC to Benefit Women In Construction
Women in the Construction Industry rejoice!
This agreement encapsulates a union to bestow actionable opportunities for women in the industry. Both associations have had long aspirations of facilitating the growth and strength of education and career development for women in construction.
Andrea S. Rutledge and NAWIC Executive Director Crissy Ingram recently sealed the deal on this exciting agreement. Both organizations plan to host their own events as well as possibly host events together, and attend each other's events.
“I am so excited for NAWIC and CMAA to enter into this partnership. This is a big step in educating and promoting women in the industry,” Ingram said.
NAWIC will utilize this union with CMAA to further the vision of its founding members by championing the value and impact of women professionals in the construction industry!
According to the CMAA website, one of the features of the partnership is that NAWIC members will be able to pursue CMCI credentials for the Construction Manager-in-Training (CMIT), Certified Associate Construction Manager (CACM), and the Certified Construction Manager (CCM) at the CMAA member rate.
“NAWIC is a natural partner for CMAA as we work collectively to advance and advocate for women in the industry,” said CMAA President and CEO Andrea S. Rutledge, CAE.
The CMAA will lead a Construction Management Principles Course for NAWIC members during their 68th Annual Conference, in Portland, Oregon, later this year in 2023.
