The Cape Fear Professional Women in Building Council (PWB) recently won the 2023 NAHB Professional Women in Building Council of the Year award in the Large HBA category, according to a news release.

This award represents the highest level of recognition presented by NAHB’s Professional Women in Building Council, recognizing a local council for accomplishments in their local community and within the building industry throughout the NAHB Federation, the release stated.

"Our council members have shown dedication and perseverance over the past year, advancing women in construction through our core values of outreach, connections, and empowerment. We are extremely proud of our hard work and are honored to receive this recognition," said Kate Eames (pictured at right) chair of the Professional Women in Building Council in 2024, in the release.

The award was presented during a ceremony at NAHB's Professional Women in Building Council Board of Trustees meeting, held at the International Builders Show (IBS) in Las Vegas. Colleen Wallace, a local chapter PWB member and the association's executive officer, participated in the award ceremony.

The NAHB Professional Women in Building Council "is the voice of women in the building industry — dedicated to promoting industry professionalism and supporting members at the local, state and national levels. Through education, professional development, and networking opportunities, PWB helps members acquire and develop invaluable leadership and business management skills that boost career success," the release stated.
