GIRLS WORLD EXPOS: RECRUITING THE NEXT GENERATION OF SISTERS IN THE BROTHERHOOD

Volunteers had a great time at Girls World Expo in Madison, WI, on October 28! Expo attendees were able to try out a virtual welder as well as help build an Adirondack chair. Check out pictures from the event on Facebook!

We exhibited at the Girls World Expo in Des Moines in September and are exhibiting at the Girls World Expo in Omaha, NE, January 27.

By participating, the Council is able to talk with girls about the benefits of a career in the trades and recruit the next generation of Sisters in the Brotherhood. Learn more about the expos.
