NAWIC Capital District

Canstruction

March 7th 
NAWIC Capital District has partnered with Spring Line Design to participate in a program called CANstruction https://www.canstruction.org/. Essentially, we design and build a cool sculpture out of cans. The sculpture (or CANstruction) is displayed at the NYS Museum in Albany. Visitors to the Museum vote with more cans for the CANstruction(s) that they like the most. And, in the end the Food Pantries for the Capital District http://www.thefoodpantries.org/ receive their largest influx of food for the year from all the sculptures and the visitors’ donations. The display is also one of the most popular attractions at the NYS Museum all year.  Build day is March 7, 2017 and the sculptures will be on display until March 22, 2017, deCANstruction on March 23, 2017. See the call for sponsors here.

WBE Showcase March 21st
​Tuesday, March 21, 2017, 5:00PM - 8:00PM

The Century House in Latham, N.Y.

On Tuesday, March 21, 2017, the Capital District Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) hosts its Annual WBE Showcase at The Century House in Latham, N.Y. This event provides New York State Minority and Women Business Enterprises (WBE) an opportunity to showcase their business to local contractors and state agencies. 
Following Governor Cuomo's 2014 mandate to increase statewide M/WBE utilization goals to thirty percent (30%) for all state contracts, it is crucial for businesses that are at least fifty-one percent (51%) owned, operated and controlled by women to get certified and market themselves as certified businesses.  The annual showcase will create an avenue for MWBE's to not only market themselves to representatives from state agencies, architects, subcontractors, owners, developers and engineers, but also give them a chance to network with other NYS MWBE's.
