President's Message

July 2022

As we hit the mid-year mark here at CREW Greater Philadelphia, we have many exciting things happening.  

Members of our chapter attended the CREW Network Leadership Summit in Indianapolis last month. Not only did we have the opportunity to get to know members from other chapters, but we also had the chance to get to know one another on a very different level. All of this, in addition to some top-notch leadership training & thought-provoking information left us very excited to come back and share it with our team. Next up is the global CREW Network Convention in Chicago this fall. Don’t miss an opportunity to meet CRE professionals from all over the world and glean information about the direction the industry is headed.

All of our committees continue to bring their ‘A’ game to the table. Our events team has continued excellent programming for both the membership & guests, with leadership sessions, golf events, new member lunches & project tours. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the support from our amazing sponsors and our corporate engagement committee that has worked so hard to keep them engaged.

Our membership team has worked diligently and as a result, we already have12 new members this year. We are now working on our mid-year membership campaign, which you can find out about here

The Outreach Committee has been hard at work evaluating the many scholarship applications we solicited from local colleges & universities. We are excited again be able to award $20,000 in scholarships to young women in the Greater Philadelphia area. In addition to scholarships, the team is also working with ‘The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia’ and Roxborough High School to fund their new business program.

In addition to the programming we have already seen, our inaugural Mentorship Program launched earlier this month and our local leadership cohort has completed 3 of their 4 training sessions.  

Last, but not least, we wouldn’t be able to get any of our messaging out to you, without the conscientious efforts from our wonderful communications committee.  

It truly ‘Takes A Village’ and I commend and thank all of the members of CREW Greater Philadelphia that continue to make us a stronger, more vibrant and relevant organization in the CRE industry here in Philadelphia and beyond! 

Best regards,

Kathy Fahy
