Committee members learn about the operations of CREW East Bay, connect with other active members, and gain the valuable experience needed for future leadership positions within CREW East Bay, their workplace, and the CRE industry, at the same time they are making a difference to advance the success of women in commercial real estate. All current CREW East Bay members are welcome to explore the opportunity of committee service.
