     Dear CREW Members 

    It is my privilege to serve as your President for 2016. I am surrounded by an 11 member Board of Directors comprised of some of the best and brightest CRE women in our industry and region. Your chapter is in very good hands! 

    Our 2016 Goals

    1. Transition from a working board to a strategic board--through increased committee participation among our members
    2. Revitalize the Young Professionals (YP) program-through clear definition of age parameters and affordable networking events
    3. Re-engage our past presidents in meaningful ways--connect with YP's; honor at 30th Anniversary celebration!
    4. Ensure fiscal responsibility and profitability when planning our programs and events--through newly created budget worksheets and accountability
    5. Complete the CREW Network Foundation Chapter Challenge!--through participation by our chapter, board members, and chapter members

    Throughout 2016, CREW NoVA will deliver content-rich programs that are informative and promote member-to-member business. 
    In addition to our calendar of events, I hope you will join me at the 2016 CREW Network Convention on October 19-22 in New York City! Considered to be the industry's premier business networking event, I can personally attest to the depth of speakers, educational sessions, leadership training and industry exhibitors. It is also widely known for the important business development opportunities that take place during the four-day event.


    Participating on one of our committees is the best way to get to know other CREW members and to fully benefit from your membership, professionally and personally. And, it is the stepping stone to future leaders of our chapter. If you are interested in joining a committee, please  contact me.

    Member-To-Member Business

    In closing, I would like to leave you with one final thought. When you have a need for professional services, or you are asked for a recommendation, please consider your fellow CREW members. Become an advocate for member-to-member business by seeking out CREW members--both locally and nationally--to provide their expertise to your organization. 

    This year I look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming programs and learning more about you!

    With warm regards,

    Susan Caudle
    CREW NoVA President 2016
