2015 CREW First!
Welcome CREWBaltimore members, and join me in celebrating our 30th year anniversary! 2015 will be an exciting year filled with opportunities for YOU to get the most value out of your CREW membership.
Kicking off the year with our annual State of the State Luncheon on January 22nd at the Center Club, come ready to network with the experts and learn about commercial real estate development trends in our region.
You don’t have to miss a CREWBaltimore event in 2015, simply visit the listing of events on our website and Save to Outlook. Throughout 2015, CREWBaltimore will deliver content-rich programs that are informative and promote member-to-member business. For Baltimore networking events in 2015, think CREW First!
In addition to the calendar of events you have come to expect, plan now to attend the 2015 Spring Leadership Summit at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore on June 18-19! This will be a great way for you to experience a national event and the professional development and networking opportunities available through CREW Network.
CREW Network Foundation
CREW Network Foundation, the philanthropic arm of our organization, is the only organization that dedicates its resources solely towards advancing women in the commercial real estate industry through research, career outreach, and scholarship. Through the Foundation, the CREWBaltimore Community Action Committee has facilitated the award of $30,000 locally in scholarship funding to young women in university level education programs. When you register online for a CREW event, simply add any amount to the Greatest Needs Fund CREWBaltimore Campaign. No amount is too small. It all adds up to make a big difference – thank you!
Participating on one of our committees is the best way to get to know other CREW members and to fully benefit from your membership, professionally and personally. If you are interested in joining a committee, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Howard Sobkov, President-Elect, at email@example.com. You can also contact the Chairs and explore opportunities with their respective committees.
