Conference registration is still open, and at just $350 for members and $400 for non-members, our Virtual Conference is available to you at a fraction of the cost of our typical Annual Conference. Plus, that registration fee gives you total access to every aspect of the event!

Browse our updated Virtual Conference activity and session descriptions, as well as our revised conference schedule, here. Most importantly, be sure to register to attend – you definitely won’t want to miss out on this experience, and we can’t wait to “see” you all there!

A few things to remember:

  • T-shirts and pins will be included in the cost of Virtual Conference, so be sure to give us your shirt size when you register!
  • All registrants will receive a registration packet (to be mailed post-conference) with their t-shirt, pin, printed program, and a few other goodies, including some giftaways from sponsors and partners.
  • Registrants will have access to all conference materials and recordings until Sept. 13 - 30 days after the conclusion of the Virtual Conference! - so you'll have plenty of time to take advantage of the full conference offerings!
  • There will be virtual networking rooms!
  • Our NAWIC Store will become the Conference Store and will be offering free shipping on all purchases Aug. 12-14! All purchases will be mailed post-conference with registration packets. Be sure to stop by the store Thursday afternoon, Aug. 13 once the new logo has been launched to get your NEW NAWIC BRANDED PRODUCTS!

We can't wait to "see" you all at Virtual Conference this year!

Don't forget: In anticipation of our NAWIC rebranding, we’re having a HUGE sale on current NAWIC store items to make room for items with our new logo! Be sure to visit the online store and stock up on “Classic” NAWIC gear before it’s gone!

Industry Update
Joe Biden’s campaign released a plan to put $2 trillion into green infrastructure and energy over four years.

A variety of pandemic-related forces have caused construction costs to decline slightly for the first time in a decade, which could lead contractors to feel a pinch in profits.


For the second month since the coronavirus pandemic began, prices of construction materials have risen.

Nonresidential construction input prices rose by 2.3% in June, according to an Associated Builders and Contractors analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Producer Price Index data released last week. This follows a rise in prices of 0.8% in May.
