Why did you join CREWBaltimore? What makes CREWBaltimore different?
I was warmly welcomed by several members at the first meeting that I attended. I enjoyed the speaker and the camaraderie among the members. I joined to make connections and network with other women in the fast paced, ever changing commercial real estate industry. CREWBaltimore is women helping women advance and championing our accomplishments. Because of the warm welcome that I received at my first event, I look for those with a “Guest” ribbon on their name tag to welcome them and encourage them to join.
