CREW National Capital Committee

Established in 2006, CNCC was created as a collaborative effort of the three regional chapters—Northern Virginia, Maryland Suburban, and Washington, DC—to increase the visibility of the individual chapters and its members, while raising the profile of commercial real estate women in the metropolitan region. The primary goals of CNCC include:

  • Hosting high-profile joint events
  • Acting as a public relations vehicle to promote successes of the membership
  • Providing greater opportunities for members to network
  • Requesting referrals and information

CNCC works together to host a variety of events, from market and economic forecasts to golf clinics to tournaments, and high-level speakers. Upcoming CNCC events can be found on the events page.

What They're Saying About the Mentorship Program

“The CREW Mentorship program has been one of my most invaluable experience to date. By focusing on myself, and making others aware that I was focusing on myself, I grew as a person and as an employee. I often talked about the mentorship program with colleagues and would briefly mention the DISC assessment or EQ-I and how much I learned from it. Some echoed that my awareness was visible, and that meant so much to me. I was able to share tools with others and even encouraged two individuals to attend an EQ-I assessment seminar. Their sentiment was similar to mine in that knowledge gained was invaluable. I will and continue to suggest this program to the females I know in the industry.”

— Nicole Oliveira, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff

"One of the greatest lessons I learned from my mentor and the CREW NoVA mentorship program is that I can screw up. Before the program, I would stress about every little error I made. By speaking with my mentor, and by growing as an individual through the mentorship program's process, I learned that the best way to handle your ‘oopsy’ moments is to own them. That way you can fix them to the best of your ability. So instead of stressing at my desk like I used to, my new motto is moving forward. How can I resolve this? Meaning, I now focus on quickly implementing a solution(s) that will get everything resolved and back to business as usual."

“CREW Northern Virginia's Connecting Future Leaders Program is a way to create awareness within yourself of who you really are and how to make the most of your qualities and abilities.”

— Toni Sanders, Apex Companies, LLC

"I recommend this program to anyone wanting to make significant achievements in their field. The insights and analysis in how you work and how others around you work are valuable. You will set goals for yourself and work toward meeting them with the support and encouragement of other professional women. You get what you put into this program and it is worth your time and effort if you want to achieve results."

— Carmela Patrick, Weber Rector Commercial Real Estate
