NAHB Media Partner Hosts Women in Construction Conference


Pro Builder and Pro Remodeler's Women in Residential + Commercial Construction Conference joins forces with Building Design+Construction’s Women in Design+Construction Conference for three days of keynote presentations, workshops, roundtable sessions, interactive panel discussions, networking events and more.

The event — taking place in Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 25-27 — will feature more than 20 sessions, including the following presentations by NAHB members:

  • Building Success with EOS™ — Focus on What Matters to Get More Done: Kimberly Mackey, founder at New Homes Solutions Consulting, LLC, delves into the six key components of EOS: Vision, People, Data, Issues, Process, and Traction. Learn how you can start working on your business and break free from the vicious cycle of "putting out fires" and reacting to issues that many leaders face.
  • Farm at Penny Lane: How a Home Builder, a University and a Nonprofit Met at the Intersection of Affordable Housing and Mental Health: Alaina Money Garman, founder and CEO at Garman Homes, and Emily Bosman, product manager at Garman Homes, participate in a panel regarding the public-private partnership with Garman Homes and XDS (a nonprofit social work agency) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to create Farm at Penny Lane — a community of affordable housing for those most in need.
  • Your Culture and Its Influence on Your Profitability: Melissa Galland, founder of DO&BE Agency, participates in a panel that will walk attendees through the complete home building journey, including perspectives from the customer and team members, and provide actionable insights that will help any builder improve their internal culture, customer experience and profit margins.
  • Aligning Your Team Around a Common Goal: Tanya Donahue, president and owner of RIKB Design Build, says you can have all the parties and perks you think are important for culture, but if the leader doesn’t match up, there's a disconnect. Learn more about what it means to be aligned, how to execute it, and how to disband the common culture misconceptions.
  • Growth Begins Outside Your Comfort Zone: Leah Fellows, founder and president of Blue Gypsy, Inc., has helped many people push past their barriers and blocks, often outside their comfort zone, in order to grow and achieve their own success. Through stories and real-life examples, participants will take away several positive outcomes, including that you don’t have to be perfect to begin and everyone we meet has a lesson to teach us.

The NAHB Professional Women in Building (PWB) Council is a proud association partner of the event, which is produced by publications of SGC Horizon — NAHB’s official media partner. NAHB members can save $75 on registration using the code “PWB.”
