Tēnā Koutou katoa

At NZWiR, we are dedicated to supporting and elevating our members and women in the roofing industry. Our focus is on upholding our pillars of Mentoring, Education, Networking, and Recruitment. As a committee, our goal is to enhance our communications and memberships while emphasizing the importance of building and nurturing relationships with women supporting women.

Being part of a tribe sets us apart!

Upcoming AGM

We have our Annual AGM scheduled for July. This event will be held via a Teams meeting. An email will be sent out to all our members, with nomination forms attached. If you are keen or considering becoming a committee member, I encourage you to apply. It is a great opportunity to grow personally, learn new skills, and join a team of inspiring, dedicated, and passionate women.

New Roofing Scholarship

We are collaborating with Vertical Horizons to offer a Roofing Scholarship later this year. This will be an amazing opportunity for a woman currently working in a roofing team who wants to obtain qualifications and learn new skills.

Exciting News: Children’s Story Book

We have some exciting news! Our Children’s Story Book committee, in conjunction with Martin Finney and Kata Bagyon-Parker, has completed the book “My Mum’s A Roofer.” This fantastic, fun, and beautifully illustrated soft-covered book tells the story of a mother who is a roofer and takes readers on a journey through her work. The book will be launched in the next couple of weeks and will be available for purchase via the website in the next month or two.

Informative Webinars

Please remember to check out and attend our informative Webinars, organized regularly by our lovely Gen from NZ Steel who is also the Auckland Branch leader. These webinars contain valuable content for all to learn from. If you miss them on the day, they are now available on our website for you to view at your convenience.

Regional Meetings

Lastly, the committee is planning to hold two regional NZWiR meetings in the coming year. We aim to have one in the South Island and one in the North Island. We are looking for members interested in helping with our mission and making these meetings memorable. If you are keen to join the subcommittee, please email us at info@nzwomeninroofing.org.nz.

Remember, in all that you do – Lean in, look up. Great things are ahead.
