Open to professionals and students, the event will take place on Thursday, September 30 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Sun Prairie, Wis.

Several notable women connected with home construction will speak at BuildX. Ronda Conger of CBH Homes will be the keynote speaker. The line up also includes personal brand coach and photographer Stacy Kaat; Cathy Stepp of Ozark Water Watch; industry advocate Amy Volkmann; and Sarah Young of Zing Collaborative. A marketing panel discussion will feature Angela Cooper of ASPIRE Marketing Strategies; Chelsey Lammers of Veridian Homes; Debbie Szwast of Stevens & Tate and Katie Sadorf of Hallmark Building Supplies, Inc.

The event will also provide attendees with opportunities to invest in their personal and professional growth, meet with vendors, and network with colleagues from around Wisconsin.

“We are thrilled to partner with Madison Area Builders Association and NARI of Madison for this special industry event,” said Kathy Raab, executive director of the Metropolitan Builders Association. “The world of home building and remodeling has much to gain by encouraging and empowering women, who are often underrepresented in the industry.”
