CREW Boston has provided me with opportunities to lead and to broaden my network, both locally and nationally. - Cara Nelson, DLA Piper LLP (US)

Joining -- and being active on -- a committee, was the best decision I made after becoming a CREW Boston member.  I expanded my professional network, obtained invaluable leadership experience, and have had the opportunity and pleasure to help shape the future of the organization.

If there is one group that has made the biggest impact to my growing network and my success in the commercial real estate industry, it's CREW Boston. - Jill Sharif, First American Title – National Commercial Services

By taking full advantage of all the benefits CREW Boston and the CREW Network has to offer, I've been able to work with many of their local and national committees. Through these committees I have forged some wonderful business and personal relationships. CREW Boston has been instrumental in my personal and professional development.

CREW Boston has helped me gain significant traction in my career by providing insightful and robust programming as well as excellent networking opportunities with important members of the greater Boston real estate market. - Megha Vadula, Redgate

Networking is an important component of building a professional career in real estate, even early in your career, and CREW Boston can help provide the tools and skills needed to augment your professional work outside of the office. They provide thoughtful events that can provide new business, trending topics and access to meaningful and potent relationships that can connect you to the entire spectrum of real estate, locally and nationally.

The best way to get to know people and an organization is to work together on a committee. In business, people refer business to people they know, like, and trust. Getting to know someone on a CREW committee is a fabulous way to have that happen! - Judith Nitsch, Nitsch Engineering

In both CREW Boston and CREW Network, we encourage members to hire and/or refer other members for project teams. At Nitsch, we have many clients and project team members who are CREW Boston members that we have met through networking at events and being on committees together over the years.
