About Annemarie Mitchell

The Capital Region builder community lost a dedicated professional with the passing of Annemarie Mitchell in December 2022. Annemarie left a tremendous legacy of work and activism for her fellow professionals and tradespeople. She was the founding member of the Professional Women in Building (PWBNNY) which created networking opportunities that grew to make significant contributions to the construction industry. Annemarie was CEO of Legacy Timber Frames, President and Board Member of Capital Region Builders & Remodelers Association, Director at New York State Builders Association and Director for many years at National Association of Home Builders. She devoted and donated her time to many Committees in these organizations including local, state and national Code Councils.

About the Fund

Since her passing, a group of dedicated volunteers and friends have been working to honor that legacy and continue her passion to empower women in construction. The “Annemarie Mitchell Legacy Fund” will be used to help women interested in establishing and furthering their career in the trades, including apprenticeships, child care assistance, tools, training and more.

There are many, many volunteers behind this effort to celebrate Annemarie’s legacy and help our local builder community identify and train candidates for careers in the construction industry. She gave so much of her time, experience and dedication, we want to continue her mission and passion for women in the construction industry. She was the perfect example that a woman can be successful, respectful and impactful.
