President's Message


Springtime officially returns to San Diego when our inboxes become inundated with industry golf tournament, open house and fundraiser invitations. Our time is precious, forcing us to pick and choose how and where to spend our available productive hours. In my experience, CREW’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament never disappoints! Held on April 27, 2018 at the beautiful Lomas Santa Fe Executive Course in Solana Beach, we enjoyed a gorgeous day chock-full of networking, entertainment and fun – all while raising money to benefit CREW Foundation.


CREW Network’s philanthropic arm, Foundation conducts invaluable research, produces white papers and provides scholarships for women pursuing careers in commercial real estate related fields. This year’s tournament reported another sold-out success!  I offer my sincere gratitude to everyone who attended, sponsored, volunteered and donated to this event; you are all heroes!


As we’ve set sail into the second quarter of 2018, the sustenance, growth and enthusiasm of our Board, Committee and Chapter members has been nothing short of phenomenal. In just the past three years, CREW San Diego’s membership has increased by more than 60% and steadily diversified to include more students, men and emerging professionals spanning a myriad of disciplines.


This year is marked with plans of strategic growth and member recognition through tactical alliances with like-minded organizations, publishers and media outlets. In addition to the member benefits associated with award nominations and publications, CREW SD has formed a new alliance with Bisnow to help diversify their program panelists through inclusion of powerhouse CREW members. If you are interested in speaking, media recognition or award nomination opportunities, please contact myself or CREW SD’s Director of Marketing, Melissa Stayner.


There are many exciting new events and opportunities on the horizon in coming months; keep an eye out for our annual Headshots and Happy Hour event in June, Mentorship Program, Summer Social, and the National CREW Convention coming to San Diego in October! I encourage each of you to consider increasing your involvement through participation as a committee or board member. In addition to helping conceptualize programs and events to best serve San Diego’s CRE professionals, CREW leadership offers unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional growth, connection to key clientele and perhaps best of all – lasting friendships with industry professionals and contemporaries for years to come.


Thanks again for supporting CREW and helping our Chapter gain recognition as one of the premiere industry organizations in San Diego!
