Benefits of Membership

Since being established in 1989, FWC has been recognized as the largest and fastest-growing local women's group in the state of Illinois, serving members in the construction industry.  We have accomplished this by continually identifying our members’ needs and offering benefits, education and legislative work that meet those needs.

 

Communication
Staying in touch with our members is key to our success.  Regular e-mail notifications regarding current bid opportunities, bid meetings, and upcoming industry events keep our members up to date with essential information.  In addition, we also serve as an intermediary for members on issues regarding certification and payment issues with agencies.

 

Networking
Industry leaders speak at our monthly member meetings and provide information on upcoming job opportunities, offer insight on relevant topics and deliver information critical to the continued success of the construction industry.  Our Annual Awards Reception attracts over 1,000 participants and is the highlight of the networking calendar.

 

Education
Industry-related seminars and workshops are sponsored by FWC and are offered in conjunction with our affiliate organizations, ASA, HACIA, CMSDC, AACE, WBDC, USMCA, BCOE, U.S. Dept. of Labor and the U.S. Small Business Administration.

 

Advocacy
Lobbyists in Chicago, Springfield and Washington, D.C., work directly for FWC to keep members abreast of pending legislation and ordinances that affect the construction industry.
