The mission of the Professional Women in Building Council is to develop an alliance of professional women in the building industry within the Home Builders and Remodelers Metro East Association.

Members are dedicated to promoting, enhancing, and supporting home building, and women within the industry through advocacy, community involvement and awareness of the home building, and construction, industry. Most notably, the Professional Women in Building Council has encouraged women’s careers in the building and construction industry while enhancing their educational experience via an annual scholarship that has been given to women Graduating high school and going into fields related to the Home Building Industry.
