About the event

Register now for the 2023 HBA of Greater Portland’s Professional Women in Building Retreat. Prepare to be inspired by industry leaders in the picturesque, small-town setting of McMinnville, the heart of Oregon wine country. This year’s event takes place September 22 & 23 at The Bindery Event Space in McMinnville with social activities also planned throughout its charming, historic downtown.

Network, engage and connect with fellow women in construction in the Portland region - and new this year – PWB members from Marion/Polk County HBA and the BIA of Clark County, WA are invited to join as well. This collaborative gathering of our region’s PWB members embodies the 2023 theme - “Building Better Together.”

Programming includes a Friday night welcome dinner and a full day of inspiration and education on Saturday. Plan to stay the weekend or drive out for the day. Shop, dine and wine-taste. Meet new friends and create long-lasting bonds.

This year, we welcome top-notch guest speakers: Alice Tang, Vice President and Partner, BPG Wealth Management and Laurel Winkel, owner of SheBuilds, a woman-owned multi-million-dollar remodeling business. HBA Portland PWB committee member Sharon Storey will share insights and lead a book study session as well. 

Register ASAP, as space is limited. Bring a guest. We hope to see you at this year’s event!
