Keeping You Connected to CREW DC
CREW Path to Leadership
Considering Service in 2017?

CREW DC will be opening its nominating process for the 2017 Board of Directors in the coming weeks.  If you haven't yet considered whether service is right for you, now is the time. 

We will be hosting two informal Q & A opportunities to give you a chance to learn more about available positions and their responsibilities on April 5 and April 19.  It's a no-obligation opportunity to learn more about the benefits of service on a Board. Registration is open for both sessions and can be found in the Upcoming Events section below.

Available positions in 2017 include:
  • President-Elect
  • Treasurer
  • Director, Programs
  • Director, Sponsorship/Community Action
  • Director, Special Events

Continue watching our Path to Leadership section of the website for forms, deadlines and information.

CREW DC 2016 Golf Program
It's Here!

It's hard to believe we are nearing the final leg of our 2016 Golf Program, but we will close out 2016 with our Annual Women's Only 9-Hole Golf Outing on May 9, 2016, at Westwood Country Club.    
If you haven't attended our Golf Outing before, you are in for a treat.  Unlike other industry outings, this event is specifically geared towards the novice golfer. Played in a 9-hole setting, the focus is on learning about the game, networking and having fun. No stress here - if you've ever wanted to try golf but felt a bit intimidated, this is a great opportunity to play a beautiful course and enjoy the CREW experience.                                          
Sponsorships are available and registration will open soon! Contact the Special Events Co-Chairs,  Heather Seich or Jessica Manolas for more information about available sponsorships.                                                              
Have a Story to Tell?
Let Us Know!
One of the things we enjoy most at CREW DC is telling your stories. We look for opportunities to showcase your talents, your achievements, and share them with others who are looking for advice, connection and inspiration in their careers.


If you have a great story to tell, let us know. Our Communications Team would love an opportunity to feature you in an upcoming edition of The Link. Let us help other CREW members by sharing your experiences and achievements.

Michelle Kilby
2016 President
Dear Members,

Over the next several months, you will notice a concentrated effort on the 2016 CREW Convention and Marketplace in New York.  Why?  New York is just a few hours away and every CREW member should experience a Network Convention. 
You will soon notice a very special place on our website where our Network Convention information will reside for the next few months - it will contain information about special travel opportunities and some pre-Convention activities we will host. If you have never attended Convention, I encourage you to consider it.  It's a way to expand your CREW influence and garner business opportunities outside the DC area.
We look forward to sharing the journey with you.
