2016 Women Build Nations

Chicago Women in Trades and North America’s Building Trade’s Unions Women’s Committee are very happy to announce that the 2017 Women Build Nations Conference will return to Chicago from October 13-15, 2017.  This year, anticipating record breaking attendance, the conference will be held at McCormick Place, which is not only the largest convention center in the country, but a venue many women had a hand in building.   We will also be near the heart of the city this year and we are planning lots of activities so you can enjoy your visit as well as the conference.  More information, including registration, coming soon!
