President's Message

September 21, 2021

Dear CREW Greater Philadelphia,

Autumn is the season of harvest.  At CREW Greater Philadelphia, we are excited that our harvest will include the opening of registration for CREW Greater Philadelphia’s inaugural Leadership Development Program.  For nearly four years a team led by Rebecca Udell, a former president of CREW Greater Philadelphia, has worked tirelessly on the creation, development, and planning of our program which will launch in January 2022.  The program’s goal is to provide high quality leadership skills training and information, encourage participants to create a personal development plan and provide an opportunity for participants to build strong networks and connections to further their career goals.  

Leadership requires transparency, excellent communication and honesty/integrity.  Our program will focus on the development of these traits because they are the ones that will allow our members to build on their gifts and strengths to advance their careers, be the next generation of Chapter leadership, and  support the CREW Network mission “to transform the commercial real estate industry by advancing women globally.”

I encourage each of you to consider this inaugural program as an investment in you.  


Carol Horne Penn
2021 President, CREW Greater Philadelphia
