President's Message for July, 2017

July 1, 2017
Written by: Angie Earlywine

Greetings fellow CREW-St. Louis members, 

This year marked our 21st Annual CREW-St. Louis Golf Classic. Once again, it lived up to its billing and our expectations. It was a resounding success! On behalf of our chapter, I especially thank the Golf Committee and the Chair, Angie Drumm of Carmody MacDonald and Co-Chair Pam Boelhauf of Colliers International, for pulling off yet another successful sell-out tournament at Norwood Hills Country Club. Congratulations to all of the tournament winners, raffle prize winners, and to those of you who struck up the beginnings of a deal on the course . . . we know you won most of all!

Get ready for some great events: Looking forward to one of my favorite times of the year – our Dine Arounds! Held from Aug. 7-18, only members can sign up for small group breakfasts, lunches or dinners hosted by fellow CREW-St. Louis members. These smaller group gatherings offer a great way to get to know other members in a more intimate setting. There are many options. Sign up for a Dine Around, or two, and enjoy the last month of summer making new connections. Dine Around options fill up fast so don't delay!

Share your news: Did you recently receive a promotion or are you celebrating an anniversary at your company? We are always looking to celebrate member progress and career advancement. Send your news to Julie Drummond or Erin Valentine. We want to share this with our members.

Is your company hiring? Did you know that as a member benefit you can post open positions through an eblast? Just send a brief description of the position and who they should contact for more information. Jenny Weissenbach with CREW Network delivers the eblasts to our members. We encourage you to leverage the power of CREW to help your company secure the talent it seeks to be successful.

Save the Date: The 2017 CREW Network Convention and Marketplace will be held from Oct. 25-27 in Houston, Texas, and registration has officially opened! If you have never been to a convention, stay tuned; we will provide amazing opportunities with scholarships to help defray the cost of attending the industry’s premier networking and educational event. All members are highly encouraged to attend this amazing conference. Actress and women's advocate Geena Davis ranks as just one of the prominent keynote speakers. Educational sessions provide insights into the industry and offer keys to advancing your success. Yes, networking always gives you an opportunity to build business and lifelong relationships. And I would be remiss not to mention the Texas-shaped lazy river for those that wish to go for a swim. Check out the CREW Network website for all details and to register.

Here’s to a great finish to the summer. See you at a Dine Around soon!

Highest regards,

Angie Earlywine
