Build Up Crews: A Small Group Mentoring Program

Another AWC Member benefit is the opportunity to join a Build Up Crew. Leveraging our amazing membership base, Build Up Crews are Woman Business Owner (WBO) construction industry peer advisory groups focused on fostering business, leadership and growth. Facilitated by the groups themselves, the Build Up Crews are personalized and confidential groups who discuss and provide mentorship to each other.

Each Crew is assigned leader that will help facilitate meeting dates, locations, and topics for discussion. Most Crews meet for 1-2 hours each month, but frequency/length of meetings, options for online only/in person, will all ultimately be decided by each individual Crew. 

Many current Crew members use their meetings to bounce ideas off one another, gain insight from other WBOs in the industry, and make business connections they otherwise wouldn’t have made.

“I’ve found benefit in being paired with women who have been in business longer than I have. Being such a new company myself it’s been nice to bounce questions off them.”

If you are a WBO AWC Member interested in participating, please fill out and return this Build Up Crews Application Form.

Annual Event & Holiday Celebration

AWC’s Annual and Holiday Celebrations are great opportunities to meet industry leaders and create new business contacts in a festive personal setting. Check out our photos from 2019’s Holiday Celebration and 2020 Annual Event.

In 2021, AWC combined what would have been our annual Holiday Celebration and what was supposed to be our 25th Anniversary Celebration from last year.  We truly “Brought Back Fun in 2021” at our upscale event at Quincy Hall in NE Minneapolis! Those photos can be found here.
