About Us

The Professional Women in Building Council meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month (except July!) to network, grow professionally, and serve our local community. We are connected to the North Carolina Women in Building Council and the National Women in Building Council, which allows us many opportunities to connect with and learn from women in the industry across the country. We take pride in bringing valuable education to our local member chapter and in supporting our community through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity and the HBADOC Scholarship Program.

If you're a women in the local construction industry, we'd love to connect with you! Our membership is diverse, including builders, designers, mortgage lenders, accountants, developers and more. There's a place for you with us.

The Women's Council, predecessor of the Professional Women in Building, was chartered as an affiliate organization of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in 1955.  The Women's Council began as an "auxiliary" organization supporting the work of HBAs.  With changes in workforce involvement by women, the mission changed and it took on the role of promoting, enhancing, and supporting home building and women in the home building industry.  It has grown to represent nearly 3,500 women who are actively involved in all aspects of the building industry -- as owners, marketing experts, subcontractors, interior designers, real estate and banking professionals.Reflecting the change in mission, a new name was approved by the NAHB Women’s Council Board of Trustees at the 2009 NAHB Spring Board meeting - the Board approved changing the name to NAHB Professional Women in Building Council (PWBC).  At the North Carolina level, the Council had that name several years earlier and is the NC Professional Women in Building.

A local PWB Council was formed in 2007.
