Every year around September 1, CREW DC members elect a subset of new Board members and a new President-Elect to serve beginning in following year. Staggered terms of Board service balance renewal with continuity and are a best practice among volunteer-led associations.

The CREW DC Board of Directors works together to accomplish the chapter’s strategic goals: Engage; Include; Develop; Foster; and Sustain. These goals were established to help our chapter achieve its mission: Transform the commercial real estate industry by advancing the achievements of ALL women. Diversity, equity, and inclusion is woven into CREW DC’s fiber and drives creativity and innovation. Serving on the CREW DC Board of Directors is a unique opportunity for leadership and networking among other ambitious professionals working in the commercial real estate field. The Board has a shared mission for a diverse and inclusive membership that nurtures belonging, cultivates connections, fosters growth, celebrates different voices, and develops leaders in commercial real estate.
