Today and every day BIA celebrates the incredible leaders who serve on our Governing Board, Chapter Boards, Councils and BIA Team.
The most recent issue of Southern California Builder (Issue 4, February 2021) digital magazine featured an introduction to BIA's Women and Diversity Council. The Women and Diversity Council will provide women and members of societally under-represented communities with training, networking and support so they can enter Association leadership through volunteer work on committees and councils, thereby helping the Council achieve its mission, as set forth by the Governing Board.
A major step in this process will be for the committee to seat the first Council Board and Chairperson. It will be the committee’s responsibility to search for the most capable people that understand and support the board’s vision and are able to carry out the duties of the Council.
Once the Council board is formed it will report monthly to the committee as to the progress in bringing new members to the Council and conducting events and educational workshops that provide fulfilment of the mission statement.
Much more will follow, and questions and suggestions are welcomed.
