       The Nashville Chapter #16 of the National Association of Women in Construction was chartered on January 31, 1959, with 32 chartering members. Our chapter was the 16th chapter within the National Association to be chartered.

How did the Nashville Chapter get started?  Mr. T. E. Akers (known to most as Jack Akers), now deceased, owner of a general contracting firm, T. E. Akers & Company, attended a meeting of contractors and learned about NAWIC from a man in Memphis.  Mr. Akers thought such an association would be of mutual benefit to the construction employers and the ladies working in their offices.  He suggested that his “gal Friday” Marion Beazley see how many women would be interested in a NAWIC chapter in Nashville.  There were 32 women willing to make the commitment to organize this chapter.  Marion Beazley served as the first chapter president.

The Nashville Chapter of NAWIC strives to be an integral part of the construction community as well as the community at large in the Nashville Area.  Our members are respected in both the construction industry and Nashville.
