By joining CREW East Bay and the entirety of CREW Network, you can advance your career and support the success of women in commercial real estate through members-only events, opportunities to network with influential professionals, CREW Network affiliation, visibility through committee participation, and discounts on all events.

Our luncheons feature prominent speakers who address diverse and cutting-edge issues that impact the commercial real estate industry both regionally and nationally.

  • Members can use CREW Network's resources to cultivate relationships, promote mutual business interests, discuss opportunities and challenges they are facing, and identify employment opportunities.
