Women Building the Nation

A Conference Welcoming All Women in the Trades and Women in the Industry from Everywhere

May 18th – May 20th
Sheraton Grand
1230 J Street, Sacramento, California

This will be the second national all-craft tradeswomen conference held in the U.S. since 2001. Last year’s conference broke the record with almost 600 arriving from across the US and a few Canadians joined in. Women in the industry from anywhere on Earth are very welcome to join in. The official conference sponsors are the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO and the California Building Trades Council. In addition, several international unions are making donations to support the conference.

This national conference is being piggy-backed to the Women Building California conference, which is heading into its 11th year. That very successful conference brought together about 350 tradeswomen each year for two spirited and educational days of workshops and networking.

The conference costs are kept extremely low to enable as many women as possible to attend. Registration, if paid before March 31, is $75 per person. This fee includes breakfast, lunch, snack and reception on Saturday, and breakfast and snack on Sunday.
