CREW Network Emerging Leaders Council

This council is for young professionals seeking to connect, learn and grow with other like-minded emerging leaders

Members must be under 35 years old and hold a commercial real estate position. 
Members will represent diverse asset classes, disciplines, and specialty areas.

CREW Councils are small, intimate peer groups within CREW Network that enable members to develop relationships, exchange knowledge, and do business with each other. Councils expand upon and enhance your CREW membership and other professional networking and information resources, delivering the competitive advantage you need to maximize your business potential. This is a long-term investment in your career.
