35 and Under Committee (35&U)

Hi CREW DC!
The mission of the 35 and Under Committee (35&U) is to recruit, retain, and enhance the experience of members who are 35 and under. 2017 is the first year 35&U is operating as a full committee, rather than as a sub-committee, and we'd love for you to join us!

Throughout the remainder of the 2017 year, we will host a number of smaller networking events so our members can get to know their peer group in fun, approachable settings. Upcoming events include Drag Queen Bingo on April 25th, an Ivy City Food and Drink tour in September, and our annual Friendsgiving event held every November.
 
As a new committee, we will also spend part of the year building out a strategy to ensure the experience of our 35 and under members is the best it can be. If shaping the future of the 35&U experience is something you are passionate about, we'd love to hear about it! Please feel free to provide feedback or consider joining the committee at liisa.warden@bakertilly.com
 
Lastly, you should be receiving invites to the 35&U events. If you did not receive the e-blast for Drag Queen Bingo, please let us know at admin@crewdc.org.
 
We look forward to a fun and rewarding year!

"When I became a member of CREW DC in 2004, I was excited to join a group of respected, knowledgeable women that had insight and experience in the real estate industry. With that said, it was also extremely daunting to walk into a room full of impressive, experienced, well-connected women that I had never met before. 35&U is a chance for young members to get together in a more comfortable setting and begin their CREW DC journey together. For those of you 35 and under individuals, please consider participating. You won't regret it!"" - Robin L. Holt, Coakley & Williams Construction, Inc.  
 
"This is my first year on the CREW 35 and Under Committee and I am excited to be apart of this year's committee! I enjoy CREW's networking events and their ability to make them fun and different from typical "happy hours" while still connecting you to women who share a common interest in real estate. I am looking forward to what we have planned this coming year and to help plan with some exciting events." - Sara Bromley, Bernstein Management Corporation
 
"The Under 35 Committee has been essential to developing deep relationships with my peers in CREW DC. I enjoyed the more casual event settings, especially the improv night!" - Jodi Paci, DPR Construction
