I'm extremely thrilled with my CREWNY experience. I've met some truly amazing members through the networking opportunities available, which has benefited the growth of my professional network and led to me pivoting my career path - a major goal I set out to accomplish when I joined CREWNY a year and a half ago. The events offer a wealth of information that I find very beneficial, and am developing my leadership skills through committee involvement. The support I receive from CREWNY is like no other compared to other industry organizations. I'm looking forward to helping advance the mission of CREWNY for many years to come!
