ABC of the Carolinas is celebrating 25 years with this year's convention entitled "Building Success Together since 1998." This two-day event will encompass speakers, panelists, group discussions and talks based on what we are all facing in the industry. From economic and political updates to hearing from sought-after authors and nationally renowned speakers, there is value for everyone. 

You can expect to learn about upcoming regulations, policies, procedures, and the future economic landscape directly from dynamic speakers at ABC's National Office in Washington, DC. In addition, hear from a panel of industry experts explaining how to navigate the challenges of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity).  Walk away with valuable and meaningful information to initiate with your team from world renowned best-selling authors and sought-after speakers in Jon Gordon, who's written 28 books including "the Power of a Positive Team," and Karen Barefoot, best known as "The Lady of Firsts" from early days in the college basketball world where she was the first person in NCAA history, male or female, to record 2,000 points and 1,000 assists in a career and the only player in NCAA history to lead the nation for four years in assists. And finally, interact and engage with contractors, suppliers, and associates over golf, meals, breakout sessions, and other activities.

This event allows you the opportunity to sit in a room with decision makers and influencers. So, join us for this great two-day convention where we can continue to build success together!

Women Talk Construction Forum is undergoing a name change to Breaking Barriers Forum. 


The forum is over a year old now and since its creation, many things have changed. We have grown as a company and now the forum has two parent websites (womentalkcaonstruction.com) & (womenconfidencebuilders.com)

Both of our parent websites contribute to the forum such as providing accessibility, giving the forum exposure, providing resources, etc. Initially, the forum was designed after the Women Talk Construction website as it was created first. The colors, styles, etc of Women Talk Construction were deliberately mimicked while designing the forum to provide a fluid, recognizable experience across both platforms. Since then, Women Confidence Builders has been created as a non-profit organization that, by design, was created with its own unique style and character. In order to make the most sense coming from either website, we decided to give the forum its own identity starting with renaming the forum to something that still represented our mission while separating itself from only the Women Talk Construction website alone. 

Hence, we introduce ... the Breaking Barriers Forum!

Now that you have been introduced, we have provided a couple of different themes that you can choose from. Each theme's style takes its personality from our respective parent website (it's basically a cosmetic preference and does not affect any content that you are able to see).

Light Theme - Women Talk Construction

Dark Theme - Women Confidence Builders

You can change your theme preference at the bottom of any page within the forum. Simply click on the 'Theme' drop-down menu in the footer of the page to see your choices.  See the image below

The last few years have been a ride of a lifetime.  A dream of helping others and 84 Lumber 's commitment to communities have enabled us to make an impact on many small, women, and minority owned businesses.  Racquel Sparks won the "Next Generation Builder" award in New York.  We've been working with her and supporting her for almost one year.  I was also honored among so many other amazing women, to win an award for "Outstanding Women" which was quite a shock from the group of ladies who were more than qualified for the same honor. 

It matters to invest in people. We love making a difference and seeing growth of women and minorities in business. 

Thank you to everyone for your unwavering support! Women Builders Council is an excellent place to get connected and grow as a woman in business and construction.  Very well done organization,  if you need more information on how to get involved,  let us know.

Thanks to our customer @Delmar VA Veterans for attending with us. Also to Vivian Mandala of CMC Networking and her amazing MWBE construction businesses who also joined us, we were so happy to meet you. 

Last but not least Chris Kempner from Peconic Solutions, you are amazing and I want to be like you when I grow up. ❤️. 

Build your network! Surround yourself with people who you value and they value you. You are the result of the people you surround yourself with.
