Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Trades Women Build Nations Conference scheduled for October 2 – 5, 2020 in Washington, DC.  The 2021 TWBN Conference in New Orleans is still on for October 2021.

What’s the Value of TWBN?



Over the years, because of your dedication, this conference has continued to grow.  With that growth, we have experienced many changes.  Some of those changes have left former websites and social media sites with stale information.  Even though we appreciate the enthusiasm of our many volunteers who want to communicate conference information, the leadership of the Tradeswomen’s Committee want to make sure you get all the correct information. With that being said, this is the official place for NABTU’s Tradeswomen Build Nations conference information: may also receive information directly from your international.
