Our luncheons feature prominent speakers who address diverse and cutting-edge issues that impact the commercial real estate industry both regionally and nationally.
  • CREW East Bay also offers member-only events, which are typically smaller and more intimate, including educational lunch and learn series, leadership events, networking and cocktail events, tours, Dine-Arounds, and other special programs.
  • 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.

Committee involvement can lead to increased contact with prominent industry leaders and the creation of new alliances, business and professional opportunities. Active committee members receive visibility and exposures and are encouraged to assume leadership roles.

  • Members receive a subscription discount to the San Francisco Business Times (print and digital access and the 2017 & 2018 Book of Lists for $78.95 - normal cost is $103 for a year’s subscription). CREW East Bay members can take advantage of this benefit by contacting Anita Jimenez.
