Professional Women in Building

About PWB

PWB logoNAHB Professional Women in Building (PWB) is a diverse network of home building industry professionals representing the entire spectrum of work in residential construction.

For more than 60 years, members have made meaningful strides to build a more diverse workforce, mentor the next generation of female building professionals, and bring awareness to the important role women serve in the residential construction industry.


Membership in the PWB

Our local SRVBCA Professional Women in Building have been a chapter since 2019 and we are an active and strong group.  With over 60 members within our PWB Council, we have built beds for kids who don't have beds, built flowerboxes and flower arrangements for Mother's Day, build picnic baskets made of wood that transformed into small picnic tables, we are currently in the final stages of building our second shed.  These are all fundraisers that allow us to provide scholarships, starting with this year.  We were grateful to have awarded 4 students scholarships to help them in their industry career paths.


The only qualification of joining the SRVBCA Professional Women in Building Council, is that you need to be a member of the local SRVBCA.  There is an annual membership of $75 which gives you membership to not only the local PWB but the National Association of Home Builders PWB Membership as well.
