CREW DC 2017 Nominating Committee
Deadline for Nominations Extended!

We have extended the deadline for nominations for the 2017 Nominating Committee to March 25, 2016! 

Our Path to Leadership program has expanded to include a nominating process for the committee which will serve to present a slate of candidates for our 2017 Board of Directors.

Here are a few things to consider if you plan to nominate:
  • You can only nominate yourself for the 2017 Nominating Committee.
  • Members of the Nominating Committee are not eligible for open Board positions in 2017.
  • Nominating Committee members must be available in late June for an in-person selection meeting and for telephone calls and discussion leading up to the meeting.

The deadline to submit a nomination is March 25, 2016.


For complete information, visit the Path to Leadership section of our website.

President's Corner

2016 President
Dear Members,

Over the coming months, the Chapter will begin the process of revamping its website in a full-scale redevelopment project.  We recognize the website is an important source of information to you and we want it to be your website with the information you need, when you want it.
In the next month, you will receive a survey which will ask you questions about your use of the website.  How often do you use it? What kind of information do you want? What can we do to improve it?  All of these questions will play an important part of developing a new, robust and exciting website for our future.
Speaking of future, in just a few weeks, our Nominating Committee will begin the process of developing our 2017 slate of candidates for the Board of Directors. I encourage you to begin reflecting on your membership with CREW, and think whether this is the next important step in your career and life.  We'll be hosting a couple of informal Q & A sessions to learn more, and you can contact any member of the Board or myself for one-on-one time.
Thank you for continuing to make CREW DC the commercial real estate association of choice for women. 
Enjoy the holiday break and come back refreshed and ready for Spring!

CREW Foundation: Chapter Challenge


You've heard us talking about the Chapter Challenge, and it's kind of like a three-legged stool.


Chapters across America have been challenged with three separate goals, of which two CREW DC has already met, but a two-legged stool never works, so we are challenging you, too!


Over the coming weeks and months, you will begin to see fellow CREW members recognized with an "I GAVE" ribbon - those members have made a contribution to CREW Foundation.  The amount is not important - the idea is that giving to CREW Foundation not only gives back, but pays forward to young professionals looking to enter our profession. It's putting our money where our efforts are - and we hope you will join us.


Giving is easy; our CREW Foundation team is often onsite at events to collect, or you can give online through CREW Network. 


Please join us in supporting young women and men looking to break into our field and help us put the final leg on our stool.
