The Power
of Networking

SUBMITTED BY

VIP MEMBER, NAPW
When Arrieta Construction first began,
about 2 years ago, we were recognized
only as individuals, not as a business.
My team and I have certainly been doing
a lot of networking to change that! As a
result of the extensive exposure and
acknowledgement the business has
received through NAPW along with other
association memberships, it has gotten
a lot of recognition! We have had a
phenomenal year and achieved much
success due to our involvement
throughout our community along with
various website exposures. This past
year alone we have accomplished
the following:

• Awarded the NAPW 2010/11 VIP Woman of the Year

• Nominee for Rookie of the Year
through NAWIC (National Association
of Women in Construction)

• Participated as a sponsor in the
Mid-Atlantic MEGAvention, our first marketing/networking event
