Education and Engagement Committee

The Education and Engagement committee focuses on spreading awareness of the Commercial Real Estate industry and supporting CREW Network Foundation. Education and Engagement holds an annual Commercial Real Estate 101 Workshop to help educate students about opportunities and professions in commercial real estate. Education and Engagement also raises funds through an Annual Trivia Night and “Chapter Challenges” to support the efforts of CREW Network Foundation, including industry research, career outreach and scholarship endowment. 

We meet monthly to discuss and coordinate our efforts. Reach out to our chairs to learn more and join us at our next meeting.
