The Professional Women in Building group is dedicated to assisting our local Home Builders Association. Actively engaged in a range of community endeavors, we provide both financial support and volunteer efforts to uplift our community. Throughout the year, we organize various events aimed at bolstering our community financially and emotionally.
During the holiday season, we extend a helping hand to families facing unexpected hardships, such as medical expenses or the loss of a loved one. Our commitment to serving extends beyond seasonal efforts. See below for few examples of ongoing projects through which we make a difference in our community.
We warmly welcome all women members of the HBA, as well as spouses of members, to join us in our endeavors. Your participation is invaluable, and we look forward to welcoming you into our community-focused initiatives!

NAHB’s PWB Council

Festival of Trees

Every November the Festival of Trees raises money for local charities. The council is the longest-running organization to be a part of this event. The PWB purchases the tree and decorations and all council members are encouraged to join together to decorate the tree at the Ho-Chunk Centre. The tree, along with many others, is on display and auctioned off in November and all the proceeds go toward the charity of choice for that year. The Council has been involved in this event since it first began.

Silent Auction & High School Trades Scholarship

The Silent Auction is held each year in conjunction with the annual Home Builders Association Awards Banquet.  Each year in November the Home Builders Association’s awards banquet recognizes outstanding members throughout the year. The Professional Women in Building members along with HBA members donate items to this auction.  All proceeds from the auction go toward our scholarship program for area high school seniors. This past year nine scholarships were given to students from various schools. Download a scholarship application here

Project Home Committee

The PROFESSIONAL WOMEN IN BUILDING members that serve on the project home committee help in the decision-making process of all areas of construction of the home. This committee also chooses the colors for siding, shingles, carpeting, flooring, cabinets, and countertops. When the home is complete, an open house is held with Professional Women in Building members hosting this event which showcases to the community this beautiful home.  Wondering what Project Home is?  Click here.

Women’s Build Week

The Professional Women in Building took part in the National Blitz Week which is held in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity’s Blitz Build Week.  The PWB came out to help put the floor joists and decking materials on in preparation for the Blitz Build.


Home Show

Women's Council Hospitality Room
Siouxland Home Show Hospitality Room

In March of every year, the Home Builders Association hosts the Siouxland Home Show. The Professional Women in Building host a hospitality lounge for all exhibitors. This is a place for them to relax, and have refreshments and cookies. Any donations made to the Exhibitor Lounge during the show are donated the the scholarship program.

Fun Events

We have a May couple’s event, spouses are invited and we have a fun evening with a meal and refreshments and usually a fun game or two. Our March and April months are typically group activities. We’ve had an outdoor barbecue, a make-and-take flower potting evening, game night, and yoga instruction, to name a few.
