2014 has kicked off with a flurry of activity for CREW Pittsburgh. Thank you to those of you who attended our annual holiday party at Lidia’s in the Strip District. It gave us time to reflect on the past year, our successes and honor our board members that are moving on.
Now is the time to focus on what YOUR CREW membership can do for you and your business. As a CREW Pittsburgh member you have access to our 100+ local members and over 9,000 members across the country who will answer your “Warm Call” when you need them. This is just one of the aspects that sets us apart from other organizations. The best way to make those connections is to make sure that your CREWBiz™ profile is up to date and accurate. Your CREWBiz™ profile is the how CREW members around the country will find you. I highly encourage you to take the time to utilize it to its fullest!
Consider volunteering for a Committee for 2014. There is always an opportunity to become more active in our Pittsburgh Chapter. If you enjoy planning events (as I do) see if there is an event you want to get more involved with (Golf Outing, Sporting Clay Shoot, Property Tour or perhaps something new!). Do you enjoy mentoring and want to educate young women about the career opportunities in the commercial real estate field? Join the Community Action Committee and continue our newly founded relationship with Chatham University. Find the committee that speaks to you. If you have the time and passion – we will gladly put you to work!
Our success is based on building strong relationships. Pittsburgh is a small community, take it a step further and you will soon realize the women in the commercial real estate field is even smaller. Establish the relationships now that will continue to grow over the course of your career. Our commitment is to maintain the highest level of membership engagement, satisfaction, and spurring those relationships.
I am honored and excited to serve as your President of CREW Pittsburgh in 2014. Please feel free to call me, email me or track me down along Grant Street for coffee. I am always eager to hear your ideas and strive to make our Pittsburgh Chapter the premier real estate industry organization in Pittsburgh.
