The NWIR Southwest Florida Council is in full operation. On April 26th we held our inaugural meet and greet event and hosted over 30 industry professionals to network and hear our mission.
The board of the NWIR SWFL Council now has the following members Ali Spingler- chair, Amy Beall- vice-chair, Amy Diaz- Treasurer, Lorena Vargas Schultz- Secretary, Janna Hunt- Membership, and Laura Mason- Communications.
Our first outreach event was on May 25th at the Lee County PACE Center for Girls https://www.pacecenter.org/locations/lee , this allowed four of the board members to speak to 40+ girls along with other local area industries, about the career opportunities in the roofing industry. We hope to expand our relationship with the PACE Center to determine how we can better serve the local area youth.
We have events scheduled throughout the summer to foster engagement and drive membership, including promoting the NWIR Career event at the FRSA trade show.
The board has certainly expanded with many more boots on the ground, and we are all looking forward to growing the chapter and increasing our network within the local roofing community.
