Welding, painting, plastering, plumbing, and heavy equipment operation are some of the trades that are highlighted at the fair. Attendees will also be able to learn how to apply and qualify for free building trade apprenticeship programs.

This will be the 8th year the City has hosted a booth for this event. Kathy Sanchez, City of Reno Public Works Crew Supervisor, also serves on the Building Women Career Fair Planning Committee.
