Extension of Benefits for Unemployed Members: If you have lost your job but your goal is to find another job in the commercial real estate industry, you need your CREW now more than ever. CREW Network wants to extend the renewal grace period for up to six months if you are an existing (2020) member who has lost your job due to the pandemic (furloughs, terminations, lay-offs). Additional information is available here.
