The AWC represents women business owners (WBO) throughout the year and promotes doing business with women contractors. We work on providing networking and educational opportunities. We promote networking as a means of building successful business relationships.
AWC focuses on stimulating public policy and industry practices that affect women construction firms. Members and staff of the AWC meet with and advise the following organizations:
- Minnesota Department of Transportation
- Metropolitan Airports Commission
- University of Minnesota
- City of Saint Paul (Construction Partnering Program)
- Associated General Contractors of Minnesota
- City of Minneapolis
- State of Minnesota Department of Admin
- Department of Labor and Industry
- Minnesota Sports Facility Authority
“Networking Mixers” offer WBO members, agency organizations, general/prime contractors and service providers an opportunity to gather and share expertise and business opportunities to help members grow their companies.
General Contractor Open Houses are an exclusive benefit of membership. At these events, members are invited by a general contractor company to meet one-on-one with their project managers and estimators at their corporate office. This is an exciting way for members to make connections and support the growth of their businesses.
AWC´s annual Golf Tournament is the primary vehicle for generating funds for scholarships presented to college women studying the industry. This event is open to golfers and non-golfers alike for fun and recreation.
Timely electronic communications keep members up-to-date with association activities and initiatives. We also keep you notified of bid notices targeted towards WBOs.
Educational Programs allow us to inform and network with women business owners and industry leaders, as well as provide opportunities for personal and business growth. Our committees work to provide invaluable information to help members run their business.
Discounts are available to members of the AWC for events, and through AWC partnering agreements with other organizations. For example, as a member of the AWC you can save 20% on your first year’s dues when you join AGC.
