Events at SWWIC
As a network of women based in the construction industry in the South West, we recognise the value of the meeting, networking and sharing knowledge and experience. Therefore as well as sharing information online, a key benefit of SWWIC membership is the opportunity to participate in a wide range of events and activities, which also often raise funds for our selected charities.
