CREW San Diego Celebrates 30 Years!

CREW San DiegoCREW San Diego, established in 1983, is excited to celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2013! This is a significant milestone and one that exemplifies the continued value of CREW San Diego as a leading organization in the commercial real estate industry. Throughout the year we look forward to celebrating our 30th anniversary with you!

2013 CREW San Diego

President's Message

The New Year brings thoughts of new possibilities, new beginnings, new opportunities. Optimism is high and goals are set.

I believe 2013 is the year we can finally shake the dust from our feet and begin to move forward into prosperous times. The economic trends are showing favorable signs as unemployment is down, consumer confidence is up and, most importantly, the election is behind us.

I say, bring on the prosperity!

This is also the year that CREW San Diego is celebrating a milestone -- our 30th anniversary. Throughout the years, the mission of CREW San Diego has been to promote, educate and support a network of professionals in the field of commercial real estate. We continue to accomplish these goals in a myriad of ways.

Promote: Locally and nationally CREW focuses on advancing women in real estate. Our formal mentorship, sponsorship and leadership programs teach women how to advance and obtain the right tools to be successful.

Educate: CREW programs are focused on cutting-edge topics that address trends and challenges that our members and local leaders are faced with on a daily basis. Our March education program will have an esteemed panel discussing the challenges that efficiencies in the workplace bring to our limited resource of land. (Spoiler alert -- ever notice how you can never find a parking spot when you go to work? Why is that, why is it getting worse and what are the solutions?)

Support: Our national organization -- CREW Network -- is 8,500 members strong and is a valuable tool and resource for our members.

As CREW San Diego celebrates our 30th anniversary, we will strive to better the organization for our members and ourselves. We invite you to come to our events, as they provide not only knowledge, but also the opportunity to develop wonderful relationships that you will carry with you for years to come.  We view CREW as the compass for your career and relationships, and an organization that can be integrated into every day of your life.

I feel honored to be a member of an organization of successful, motivated, amazing, diverse people who inspire me every day. I look forward to a year filled with new ideas, creative thinking and a network of people determined to see our industry grow and flourish to become better and stronger than before.
