The new executive vice president of the National Association of Women in Construction has hit the ground running.
Since joining the organization in September, Beth Brooks “has begun to realign staff and has assessed ways to better serve our members, renew partnerships and increase our national sponsorships,” says NAWIC President Catherine Schoenenberger.
Brooks comes to NAWIC after having served as chief executive of the Texas Pest Control Association, establishing its first statewide office, and the Texas Society of Association Executives, according to an NAWIC news release.
She is also a speaker, trainer and author of “The New CEO’s Guide,” which was published by the American Society of Association Executives.
As for changes to NAWIC, Brooks says she plans to focus on streamlining the organization, including its office structure, procedures, bylaws, volunteer roles and policies.
“We want to follow best practices throughout NAWIC and make sure that our practices are current and enticing to younger members,” she says.
She’s also looking ahead to the 2018 annual meeting.
“We have already started to create new sponsorship opportunities and build a creative, educational annual meeting for next August in Orlando,” she says.
