Stay up-to-date professionally and get handy information for your business by attending our networking events.

HIA in Townsville are holding our annual Building Women function for Townsville. HIA Building Women introduces a focus on supporting women in the residential building industry by creating opportunities to enter the industry, recognising the needs of women already working in the industry and acknowledging the contribution of women to the industry.

The luncheon provides the opportunity for members and guests to network with other women and men in the building industry and the community. You will hear from some inspiring speakers at HIA’s Building Women lunch.

Join us for lunch where you can share your business ideas, inspire, and connect with other industry women.

You'll enjoy a two course meal at 2022 Australia Good Food Guide Winner The Balcony Restaurant:

  • Hear from inspiring speakers that will share their personal journey to success.
  • Take advantage of the perfect networking opportunity within a relaxed environment.
  • Be part of an inspired community where we can all work together to help each other achieve success in business and in life.
