Call for Nominations
CREW DC 2017 Nominating Committee

We are looking for a few talented women and nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 Nominating Committee! 

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.

Nominations are due by March 18, 2016. 


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

Michelle Kilby
2016 President
Dear Members,

In my last letter I promised we would be launching our candidate search for the 2017 Board of Directors very soon, I'm excited that we are on the launch pad in three, two, one....
I am so excited to announce this year we will be opening the Nominating Committee to an open process aligning with CREW Network.  Our members will have the opportunity to nominate themselves for this very important role in our Chapter, and I hope you will consider the chance to serve.
If you have strategic vision for the Chapter, have limited time but want to make an impact, or want to continue helping CREW for years to come, this may be the perfect opportunity for you!
Thank you for continuing to make CREW DC the association for commercial real estate industry professionals in the DC area.
