The Ladies of the Minnesota Land Improvement
Contractors Association are a busy bunch. The saying goes: "Behind every successful man is a woman." That little phrase pretty much describes the role of the contractor's wife. Some wives have a career of their own, some stay at home and keep the house and kids in order, some help in the day to day duties with the contractor, but they all fill an important role.
The MN LICA ladies raise money for the MN LICA scholarship fund and other projects by holding tee shirt/sweatshirt sales, quilt raffles and the like.
These busy women find time to be involved with the men of LICA and have become an important part of the MN LICA. A few women hold officer positions on the Board of Directors and have even been President.
A contractor's wife has to be a psychologist, a mind reader, a good listener, and have the patience to withstand the long hours and hectic schedules.
The MN LICA Chapter Ladies are great examples of what it takes to be a contractor's wife.
