Join me in celebrating Professional Women in Building Week. The MBAKS Professional Women in Building Council has many members who have taken risks and challenged the status quo to become leaders.

What does it take to succeed? Motivation!

Two of our members have made headway in the residential building industry and worked hard to overcome obstacles and pave the way for others to follow. Our council is honored to recognize these leaders who have motivated and mentored many of our members.

Darylene Dennon is the CEO and president of Solid Energy Inc. She owns a successful general contracting company specializing in painting and carpentry. Dennon is also the incoming National Professional Women in Building chair.

Juli Bacon is the founder and president of JB Consulting Systems. With more than two decades of human resource and business experience, she has developed both a strategic and practical approach to HR within the residential building industry. Bacon is also the immediate past National Professional Women in Building chair.

We appreciate Darylene Dennon and Juli Bacon for being such motivational leaders in our Professional Women in Building Council.
