Women Building the Nation Conference


A Conference Welcoming All Women in the Trades and Women in the Industry from Everywhere.

The April 6-7 conference in Sacremento will be the third national all-craft tradeswomen conference held in the U.S. since 2001. Over 600 Tradeswomen broke the record for attendance in 2011. In 2012, 520 Tradeswomen attended, from 26 States and Canada as well as Namibia, Curacao and Switzerland. The official conference sponsors are the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO and the California Building Trades Council. In addition, several international unions are making donations to support the conference.
The conference is designed to give opportunities for networking, skill building, leadership development and organizing. Each year, tradeswomen, union leaders, apprenticeship coordinators, contractors, and politicians facilitate more than 30 workshops and plenary sessions.This national conference is being piggy-backed to the Women Building California conference, which is heading into its 12th year. That very successful conference brought together about 350 tradeswomen each year for two spirited and educational days of workshops and networking.

The conference costs are kept extremely low to enable as many women as possible to attend. Registration, if paid before Feb 22nd, is $75 per person. This fee includes breakfast, lunch, snack and reception on Saturday, and breakfast and snack on Sunday.
