For over a decade, NABTU has hosted the annual Tradeswomen Build Nations conference (TWBN), which has since become the largest gathering of tradeswomen in the world. Today is the first of two webinars in lieu of the canceled TWBN last fall.  Please feel free to watch one or all of today’s panels, and we can’t wait for our next scheduled in-person event this October 28-30 in Las Vegas, NV.
