CWIR offers an opportunity to join three different sub-committees:

  • Education Sub-Committee -The Education Sub-Committee serves Chicagoland Women in Roofing by both seeking out and creating educational opportunities for women to learn in open and welcoming spaces. We focus on both basic information for women new to the industry as well as information on new and cutting edge roofing technology. The committee’s objective is to: retain guest speakers to present at meetings; organize events, such as factory and jobsite tours; inform members about online courses and webinars; and provide guidance to roofing-related resources. All educational events will be posted on the CWIR calendar.
  • Events Sub-Committee – The purpose of the Events Sub-Committee is to research and provide options for meeting locations and secure food and drink sponsors for each CWIR meeting. The committee is also responsible for planning any social events as well as work with committees to help plan and develop other CWIR functions. The Event Committee will facilitate the planning, sponsor solicitation, and promotion of any events with other organizations.
  • Community Relations – The goal of the Volunteer Sub-Committee is to enhance CWIR as a whole by becoming involved and giving back to our communities.  Quarterly volunteer opportunities will be provided as decided upon at CWIR meetings.  By volunteering with various groups and organizations we will provide benefits to CWIR, society and as individuals.
