Find it Here – Professional development and leadership opportunities

Looking to invest in yourself? Look no further than CREW Network 

Do you realize that CREW Network now has over 10,000+ members located in over 70 major markets across North America, members who represent nearly every discipline within the CRE industry? CREW Network is now the industry’s premier business networking organization dedicated to influencing the success of the commercial real estate by advancing the achievements of women.  It sounds great, but what does that really mean for our members?

Since taken an active role in CREW Detroit, first as a committee chair and now president of the Chapter, I have discovered the professional development and leadership opportunities offered by CREW Network to be an outstanding resource. Nowhere else can you find training and development tailored specifically for members of the commercial real estate industry.  Here are a few of prime examples of the opportunities you can take advantage of this year!

Leadership Summits
The Leadership Summits take place twice a year in Spring and Fall, preceding the Network Convention.  This unique learning opportunity is open to all chapter leaders and members who want to increase their abilities as board leaders as well as advance their careers through leadership development. This multifaceted meeting brings together the top leaders in CREW Network to learn from one another about chapter management, but also to learn from leading experts about the critical leadership skills that give you the business advantage.

Leadership Certificate Program
The CREW Network Leadership Certificate program features year-long specialized leadership development, industry training and mentorship. Invest in your career and your future through the CREW Network Leadership Certificate Program. By participating in this program, you will be exposed to extraordinary academic content coupled with mentors who are familiar with the challenges in the commercial real estate work environment—and you will earn a recognized industry credential that demonstrates the skills and knowledge needed to lead in CRE.

Participants commit to attending three sessions throughout the year – Winter, Spring and Fall.  While this program is already underway for this year, I encourage you to put it on your radar and sign up the next time it is offered.


CREW Network Convention and Marketplace
The annual CREW Network Convention and Marketplace provides education, professional development, and inspiration and insight from thought-provoking speakers—all structured within a platform designed to maximize your business networking.  The Convention is ideal for professionals looking to expand your network while taking advantage of some of the best education and leadership development in the industry.  The Convention and Marketplace is open to all members – I encourage you all to consider attending. Register early – the venue hotel often books up early. Here is a letter to help you get approval from your boss.
