BWiC 2019 Open House

One of Berkeley Building Company’s esteemed Project Managers, Carolina Messinese, recently attended the Building Women in Construction (BWiC) Fall Open House event on October 3rd, held by the Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts (AGC). As the event’s primary aim was to connect women within the construction industry, Carolina enjoyed several networking opportunities while also learning more about AGC and its 2020 plans.

AGC’s main mission is to “provide members powerful programs, services, and initiatives that strengthens their competitive advantage and promotes the economic strength of the commercial construction industry…Building Excellence.” As members of AGC, we are excited to attend future learning opportunities while continuing to build connections into the new year.
