June 19, 2018


Laurie & Brennan is a proud sponsor of Camp NAWIC.  Camp NAWIC is presented by the Chicago Metro chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction.  Camp NAWIC is a week long summer day camp for female high school students geared towards introducing campers to the construction industry as a viable career option.  Camp NAWIC participants are exposed to many facets of the construction industry, from professional careers such as architect, engineer, and project manager to skilled trades such as carpenter, electrician, and plumber.

Camp NAWIC also introduces participants to supporting roles in the construction industry.  To that end, Laurie & Brennan hosted a lunch for the campers on June 12, 2018.    During the lunch session, Laurie & Brennan attorneys Krista Kapp, Erin Krejci, Kendall Woods, and Carolyn Morehouse provided an overview of their construction law practices, shared their experiences, and answered questions.  Laurie & Brennan is proud to support Camp NAWIC and wishes the camp participants the best of luck!

National Rebuilding Day is an annual event in which volunteers work together to renovate homes belonging to the elderly, disabled, and low-income homeowners.  The goals of National Rebuilding Day are to make the homes warm, safe, and dry – and to provide improvements that will leave the homes healthier, brighter, and more pleasant places to live.

Erin and her husband, Steve, enjoyed volunteering alongside colleagues from the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) to improve the home and yard of a lovely woman in Bellwood, Illinois.  The Mayor of Bellwood, Andre Harvey, even stopped by to personally thank the CFMA team!

Erin is looking forward to the next National Rebuilding Day and Laurie & Brennan is committed to continuing to support Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago and their worthwhile mission.
