Professional Development Programs

Building effective leaders is key to advancing the commercial real estate industry.

Our Professional Development Committee created two programs-Connecting Future Leaders and Young Professionals (YP) Group-to provide members with high-level professional development training. We also actively recruit YPs to serve on our board and committees to demonstrate and enhance leadership skills.

Young Professionals Group


CREW NoVA's Young Professional Group (YP) strives to help young women excel by providing them with mentorship, peer-to-peer collaboration, and leadership development. We facilitate and exploit professional opportunities related to the field of commercial real estate through both the collaborative and collective effort of CREW NoVA members. Our four core professional competencies for young professionals include:

  • Leadership
  • Education
  • Organic relationship-building
  • Networking/mentoring

Our YP participants have the opportunity to work with experts in professional coaching and succession planning, engage in the community and join hands with fellow CREW members.  We provide several networking events and happy hours throughout the year that are fun, yet educational.  These events are designed to let you "meet and greet" with industry legends, high-end professionals, and more.
