Woman of the Year is the highest level of recognition presented by the NAHB PWB. The award honors PWB members who demonstrate excellence and a commitment to making a difference in their professional life and community.
Morgan served as PWB council chair in 2014, after serving as vice chair in 2013, regional trustee in 2012 and communications chair in 2010 and 2011. As chair, Morgan managed the council’s business and represented the interests of the council members throughout NAHB. During her tenure, Morgan oversaw the successful, complete integration of PWB into NAHB as a council, welcomed two new local councils, expanded the reach of PWB and built a broader base of leadership, raised funds for BUILD-PAC, facilitated the Women in Residential Construction Survey and much more.
Morgan has been heavily involved with PWB at both the local and national levels; serving as communications chair, Region B Trustee and participating in spring, fall and International Builder’s Show (IBS) board meetings for several years. Morgan was instrumental in the founding of the Atlanta PWB chapter, which is now one of the largest local councils in the nation.
Woman of the Year award recipients have a proven dedication to the local, state and national councils. The Woman of the Year Award is evaluated and judged by a committee comprised of the NAHB PWB Chair, Area Trustee Chair, selected NAHB PWB board members and/or national committee chair, past NAHB PWB chair(s), past Woman of the Year recipient(s) and/or an HBA Executive Officer.
