JACKSON, MS -- Women in Tile, a new group backed by the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) to support women in the tile industry, met for the first time at Coverings 2022 and has been angling to develop a board and a set of initiatives to support the women in the tile industry.

There will be a Women in Tile luncheon at Coverings, the international tile exhibition being held in Orlando, FL, from April 18 to 21, 2023, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 20th. The luncheon, sponsored by Laticrete and Coverings, will give industry women a chance to gather, network, learn about tools for personal and professional growth, and discuss key concepts and directions for the organization. It will feature a short session by Gianna Vallefuoco of NTCA Five-Star Contractor Vallefuoco Contractors.

The luncheon will commence shortly after the close of the Women Talking panel moderated by TileLetter Editorial Director and Senior Writer Lesley Goddin from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
