About The Greater Little Rock Chapter
The Greater Little Rock Chapter is the 12th chapter chartered of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). Our chartering occurred August 16, 1958.
The 23 chartering members are as follows:
Ruth H. Osborne
Thelma V. Crow
Viola F. Brown (Elam)
Mamie N. Williams
Of the 23 chartering members, Janis Moseley is the only one who remains an active lifetime member of our chapter.
The Greater Little Rock Chapter has had the honor of having three of its members elected to serve as the national President. They are as follows:
1961-1962 Clara W. Tuck
1983-1984 Mary A. Magee
1987-1988 Joyce A. Lemons
We are a very active chapter with many programs, projects and events through out the year. We have an annual golf tournament each year as our major fundraiser to help us to promote our programs, community service projects, and our annual scholarship.
Our programs include: Block Kids – a program to introduce children in grades K-5 to the construction industry and CAD Design & Drafting – a program which promotes the design phase of the construction industry; Each of these programs is set up for the participants to potentially be awarded cash prizes at the local, regional and national level.
Some of our community service projects include building a deck at Camp Aldersgate, constructing doll houses to be auctioned at the American Heart Association of Arkansas’ annual Heart Ball, and playing Santa Claus to groups of children each year at the Arkansas School for the Deaf.
In 2007, we signed an agreement with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock to offer our annual scholarship to a student enrolled at UALR in the Construction Management program.
Our chapter meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Our meeting consists of dinner, a speaker or program, and following up with our monthly business meeting.
