Ambassador Committee

Even though Claire is a “rookie” and Mary Sue is a “veteran” in the CRE Industry, they share many common connections, including their love of sports. The Ambassador Committee assists new and existing members with making connections through one-on-one meetings, dine-arounds and in-person CREW events. “Our committee is made up of amazing individuals who strive to unify our members and help them feel welcome.”
