PWC, Boston Announces 2020-21 Board of Directors and Inaugural Advisory Board

BOSTON (10.13.2020) The Boston Chapter of Professional Women in Construction (PWC) is proud to announce its incoming 2020/2021 board of directors and its newly formed advisory board. The Boston chapter was formed through the collective effort of seasoned AEC professionals and will be further strengthened by the advisory board comprised of a diverse group of owner representatives from different AEC market sectors. PWC’s mission is to ‘connect, promote and advance women in the AEC industry’ and actively engages women and men from AEC and affiliated firms. Owner representation ensures the organization will focus discussions and program content directly related to our current environment in a targeted and impactful way.

“I am honored to serve as the PWC Boston president and am looking forward to supporting the continued growth of our Boston chapter. This dedicated group of professionals is committed to our mission and their hard work is clearly seen in the caliber of high-quality programming and industry efforts,” said Sarah McGillicuddy, director of business development at BR+A Consulting Engineers and incoming PWC Boston chapter president. “2020 brought many challenges and it was vital to transition from in-person to fully virtual events. Our volunteers worked hard to continue to host interesting and engaging programs despite sweeping restrictions. Our next board of directors and advisory board will continue to play an important role in this virtual transition and will work diligently to expand chapter membership and enhance member benefits. I want to specifically thank Past-President Sara Bryant for her leadership throughout the past year and her ability to pivot during difficult times. I’d also like to recognize the past board and welcome our incoming board and advisory board members. We look forward to 2020-2021 and thank our members and supporters for their interest in our organization”
