NWiR is pleased to announce the formation of a new Council, the NWiR Illinois Council which will encompass the state of Illinois and will offer events for women throughout Illinois, in northwest Indiana, in southern Illinois in conjunction with the St. Louis Council and in southeast Wisconsin in conjunction with the Milwaukee Council. Women in Illinois have asked for the creation of this Council in order to empower and engage with women in the roofing industry throughout the state of Illinois, to leverage relationships with and the broad benefits of National Women in Roofing, and to participate in the pipeline of national leadership opportunities.
A team of six women in Illinois are leading the efforts to launch the NWiR Illinois Council. This leadership launch team (LLT) is creating a calendar of four events to take place by the end of the year. NWiR members who are interested in participating with the Illinois Council should be sure to update their profile after March 27 and select the Illinois Council as their primary Council.
