The Professional Women in Building Council starts at the National Association of Home Builders level.  As a member of your local association, you are also a member of Pennsylvania Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders. The National PWB council charters local and state PWB’s across the country joining women (and men) together to promote women in the building industry.  Read more about who we are in our Mission Statement.


If your local association has a PWB you can simply join through your local but also benefit from all the state and national benefits of membership.  Our local associations are listed below as well as contact information to their Facebook pages.

If your local association doesn’t have a PWB chapter you can join the NAHB PWB as a Member at Large by clicking here.

Once you are a member you will learn more about events in your area, across the state and nationally that you can get involved in, committees you can serve on and other like-minded members to network with.

Mission Statement

The PWB Council is the voice of women in the building industry, dedicated to promoting industry professionalism and supporting our members at the local, state and national levels by offering networking and educational opportunities, legislative awareness and outreach, and professional and personal development.


The PWB Council is the premier professional organization that provides strategies and solutions for professional women in the building industry. Through our various publications, awards, scholarships, seminars and programs, we provide women in the building industry the professional advantage necessary to excel and succeed. Our members also receive well-deserved recognition for their contribution made to the home building industry and home ownership.

Purpose and Goals

  • Encourage career development within the industry
  • Promote and support active involvement in the political and legislative process
  • Promote and support community involvement
  • Provide professional development resources
  • Provide recognition of member industry achievement
  • Provide resource information and support for our members, affiliated councils and NAHB members.

Please be sure to check out these local PWB Chapters and learn more about how you can get involved.

Can’t find your local? If your local HBA does not have a PWB Council, you can join PWB directly as an at-large member for $50 per year. You’ll still receive the same benefits.
