Chapter 164 - Minneapolis St Paul
Chapter 164 was founded in 1969.
Our Chapter has awarded scholarships
since its chartering to qualified young men
and women studying in the areas of
construction and construction related
Our Chapter has had 4 members who
served as Directors on the national board;
Jan Burger, Robbie Zanko, Susan Erickson
and Patty Erickson. Jan also served as
National President for 1981-82.
Our chapter was hit hard by the recession, just like the rest of our industry. We are now rebuilding.
Since we are a small chapter that means there are many opportunities for chapter leadership. There are also many opportunities to highlight your company through our speaker series and site tours.
We continue to award scholarships, as we have since our chartering. We are proud to continue this tradition.
One of our chapter members, Kristia Davern, recently served as the Inaugural Chair of the Young Professional Advisory Committee for the NAWIC National Board.
