Presidents Message 2022, We are Building Together

As we begin 2022, I am filled with optimism and enthusiasm as we enter a new year full of opportunity and possibility to Build stronger connections within our chapter and network.  I am honored and humbled to serve as your 2022 CREW East Bay President and look forward to connecting with each of you over this year.

Over the past two years CREW East Bay has achieved so much, as we continue to go through one of the most challenging times most of us have experienced.  It is through the support of our members, sponsors, our amazing board and leadership team that we continued to grow a strong chapter while always being true to our mission.  Thank you all for your continued support of CREW East Bay, you are genuinely what builds our organization.  

CREW East Bay and our mission has never been more essential to our industry than it is today.  In 2022, we are Building Together!  We are an organization that builds each other up and we are committed to continuing to build CREW East Bay as an industry leader.  That means that we do business together!  This year will bring more opportunities to advance women as influential leaders in the commercial real estate industry by providing educational resources, recognition, and opportunities to build professional relationships. 

We have some exciting events planned for this year, including our first event of 2022, “Bad Ass Women of Economics” on January 20th.  There’s no better way to start a new year than with a panel of Bad Ass Women in Real Estate Economics sharing their insights and what they see in store for commercial real estate in 2022!

As we start our goal setting for 2022, we want to remind you all to stay connected by joining committees and attending events.  Connections and business referrals are the foundation that builds our organization. Don’t forget to report your CREW Connections on the CREW East Bay website, hundreds of connections have been made over the past year. 

In closing, I look forward to building relationships with you and it is an honor to have the opportunity to serve as your CREW East Bay President for 2022.  I am committed to build on the work of my predecessors, creating a culture where diversity is celebrated, and all are welcome and heard.  Welcome to CREW East Bay 2022!
