CONSTRUCTION TRADES CONVENTION:
WOMEN AT WORK.

Rockford Housing Authority and Project First Rate are excited to announce that we will be hosting a virtual Trades Convention on September 30th from 3:00-5:00. Registration will be needed to attend the event, and it is open to all RHA residents and Rockford community members. This is the first year RHA and Project First Rate will be hosting the
Construction Trades Convention: Women At Work but we will be making this an annual event!

The Construction Trades Convention: Women At Work is an opportunity to learn from women in the trades such as
construction, painting, and electricians and to look at the Apprentice Trainee Positions available. The trades industry is a male-dominated career, but many women still manage, work, and love these jobs. This trades convention is a time to explore jobs that many women don’t think about strictly
because they don’t know about them.
