I recently had the opportunity to help organize the annual CREW Kansas City membership dinner. I’ve been a member of CREW KC since November 2017 and have had the opportunity to serve on a committee, volunteer with fellow CREW women, and participate in CREW’s mentorship program.
CREW Network, which stands for Commercial Real Estate Women, started in Kansas City in 1987 and has grown to over 100 members from around the metro.
“CREW KC was formed with the intention of banding together the women of Kansas City’s commercial real estate industry to further the dialogue about women in real estate and collaborate professionally.”
CREW hosts a variety of events from quarterly luncheons on local market topics, networking morning coffees, and local job site tours.
Our dinner provided the opportunity to introduce new members to CREW and provide information about how to get further involved. We were also honored to have Gayle Packer, CEO of Terracon, speak on the many different paths your career can take and how to always be ready to accept a new challenge.
It was a great evening welcoming new members and celebrating CREW’s local accomplishments!
