Carol Morgan, managing partner of mRELEVANCE, LLC, was named the 2016 Woman of the Year at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Professional Women in Building Council (PWB) Awards Luncheon during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
Woman of the Year is the highest level of recognition presented by the PWB. The award honors PWB members who demonstrate excellence and a commitment to making a difference in their professional life and community.
Morgan served as PWB council chair in 2014, after serving as vice chair in 2013, regional trustee in 2012 and communications chair in 2010 and 2011. As chair, Morgan managed the council’s business and represented the interests of the council members throughout NAHB.
Morgan has been heavily involved with PWB at both the local and national levels; serving as communications chair, Region B Trustee and participating in spring, fall and International Builder’s Show (IBS) board meetings for several years. Morgan was instrumental in the founding of the Atlanta PWB chapter, which is now one of the largest local councils in the nation.
Professional Women in Building members work in all aspects of the building industry—as owners, builders, remodelers, architects, suppliers, marketing experts, designers and in finance and real estate. PWB is a select group of inspiring women who share strategies and solutions to promote, enhance and support professional women in today’s home building industry.
Your Home Builders Association of Greenville is more than thrilled to be starting its own PWB. Please stay tuned as we continue to grow the PWB task force into a full council to hear how you can get involved.
