CREW was the organization that helped me understand that time away from my desk could further my professional development. - Leslie G. Cohen, Samuels & Associates

As a CREW member since 2002 and the President for 2015-2016, I’ve seen the value CREW offers from every angle.  The networking, access to smart & impressive women and the educational programming - has been fundamental to growing in my career as a real estate developer. Time spent encouraging women to participate in CREW and helping the organization grow even stronger is an investment I gladly make in the future of our profession.

CREW Boston offers extraordinary value to its members including networking, mentoring, and professional development opportunities. - Joan F. Parsons, Esq.,
 Riemer & Braunstein LLP

CREW Boston is a dynamic organization – largely because it attracts some of the most talented and respected individuals in the commercial real estate community.  Every member is committed to building relationships, sharing information, and supporting the success of our colleagues.

There is no better way to maximize the CREW Boston experience than by rolling up your sleeves and getting involved with a Committee. - Claudia Piper, Webster Bank

I did not join a Committee for the first several years despite the advice that you get more out of your membership by doing so. Joining one Committee and then another and, ultimately, the Board has allowed me to create even deeper relationships that benefit me professionally day in and day out.

Share your ideas with CREW. You may be surprised where they take you - Marty Jones, MassDevelopment

CREW Boston doesn't have to be bound to our fair city. A group of CREW members organized a learning exchange to Hamburg. We saw unique, innovative deals and heard about new approaches to development from our European counterparts. The creative women at CREW make the sky (or as we learned in German, “himmel”) the limit.
