Sisters Grab the Spotlight at the Georgia Capitol

The first week of March is always national Women In Construction week, and the Southeastern Carpenters took the opportunity to pair female members of the Council with Georgia legislators during a visit to the state capitol.†Several of our members, who also are part of the Councilís†Sisters in the Brotherhood†program, made an impact at the March 2 session. Both the House & Senate recognized several SECRC Sisters, and the entire House gave them a standing ovation!

The sisters met and spoke with Senator Sally Harrell (shown here, second from left) with SIBs Tamny Tatum (Local 225 SIB Chair), Darian Brooks (Local 256); Mildred Starlings (Local 283 SIB Chair).
