Feb 04, 2013

Women In NECA’s fourth Leadership Summit will be an open dialogue about mentoring, personal finance skills and professional development that can help WIN members improve their companies and lives.

The WIN Leadership Summit is a unique opportunity to connect with the dynamic women of NECA and our industry partners. If you are searching for the connections and skills to grow as a woman working in electrical contracting, join us for the Women In NECA Leadership Summit!

Industry women who connect through WIN are more invested in their careers and businesses.
