We celebrated several big events this month also. The ABC Women Building Washington event, She Builds was on March 9th. At this event, hundreds of female volunteers from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Metro Washington partnered with a team of people let by Elisa Hermes, director of development for Rebuilding Together Montgomery County, as well as contractors from Shapiro & Duncan, to help shed light on women builders and the challenges some women-led households face. The volunteers repaired a women’s shelter and two homes in Montgomery County. Renovations to the homes included flooring repairs, debris clean-up, and railing installations.
The Washington Building Congress 2018 Craftsmanship Awards event took place at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel on March 16. These awards are created to bring public recognition to those people who, because of exceptional workmanship and individual effort, deserve such an honor. The winners of these awards are provided on the WBC website.
The ABC April Networking Event was held at City Perch Kitchen + Bar on April 4th. It was fun to mingle with colleagues and learn more about what projects are in process around the metro area.
The ABC Construction Foundation Career Fair is on April 11 & the ABC School Outreach Training takes place on April 25.
