December 2022

I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by!  As we close out another year, I am grateful for all of the amazing women and men that comprise our Greater Philadelphia Chapter and all of the hard work everyone has put into making 2022 such a success.

Our membership is closing out at one of the highest numbers we have had to date, with 186 members.  The engagement of our membership is key to making this chapter the well-oiled machine that it is.  Some of this year’s accomplishments include:

  • More than 30 events focusing on networking, education, leadership development, career and personal growth, and health and wellness
  • Raising more than $60,000 to fund the Chapter’s philanthropic efforts
  • Stepping up to be a Hall of Fame Champion Founder of CREW Network Foundation – and pledging an additional $20,000 over the next three years
  • Record breaking Sponsorship dollars committed to our Chapter
  • Launching our local ‘Leadership Cohort’
  • Launching our inaugural Mentorship Program
  • Hosted 3 Signature Chapter Events (Annual Luncheon | Golf Outing | Clay Shoot)
  • Continuing to publish DEI Resources for our members to reference
  • Highlighting our members and their accomplishments over our social media channels throughout the year
  • Re-engaging our Chapter Past Presidents in leadership and planning, to execute a 2023 industry education event

None of this would have been possible without the hard work of our Board of Directors, Committee Co-Chairs, General Membership and most especially, the financial support of our amazing 2022 Chapter Sponsors.  Thank you all for your commitment to advancing the role of women in the commercial real estate industry.

We are in the most excellent leadership hands as we head into 2023, with Susanne M. Hanson at the helm of our new board.  Looking forward to working with another wonderful group next year.  

Wishing you all a Happy & Healthy Holiday Season!

Kathy Fahy
2022 President | CREW Greater Philadelphia
