WIC Week 2020

WIC Week 2020 is nearly upon us and we have quite the schedule of events set!  Our committee has worked hard to plan an action-packed week.  We hope you can come to every event, but try to get to at least one.  Our largest event will be the Hard Hat Happy Hour on Thursday evening.  This is hosted by NAWIC, but open to all A/E/C industry organizations/employees.  See the schedule below or check out the WIC Week 2020 page on our website.

Additionally, we’ve had a couple of WIC Week ads placed on GRTC buses.  If you see them, or anything else advertising WIC Week, please post it on social media with the hashtags #wicweek20rva and #wicweek2020 so that we can spread the word EVERYWHERE!
