President's Message

Greetings fellow CREW-St. Louis members,

The year of 1982 was eventful. Perhaps you were digging out of the city’s snowstorm. Maybe you were celebrating the Cardinals World Series victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Some were grateful that a severe recession was near its end. Then again, maybe you were still just in school, either wondering about a career or embarking on a journey into commercial real estate.

Six women though were focused on building a network for women to advance and succeed in our industry. That’s the year they officially founded CREW-St. Louis!

Such a momentous occasion deserves more than a mere passing and words. We will celebrate our 35th Anniversary with a gala on Tuesday, Nov. 14, at The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s. After all, we couldn’t be prouder of the positive impact our chapter has had on the Commercial Real Estate Industry. It’s only fitting that we mark this milestone by celebrating the past, present, and future of CREW-St. Louis.

There are many reasons to join this celebration:

Let’s kick the evening off with signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. A live band will entertain us during the networking hour.

The evening also will sparkle with our first diamond heist. This gives you a chance to select a piece of jewelry. One lucky participant will find that she selected the stunning piece rather than a replica at the end of the evening!

On to a sit-down gourmet dinner but first we can look forward to a congratulatory toast given by a surprise real estate icon in St. Louis. As you enjoy dinner and conversation with your colleagues, we will further celebrate CREW-St. Louis’ accomplishments and acknowledge all of our chapter’s past Presidents.

And it wouldn’t be a classic event at Bissinger’s without an array of desserts stationed throughout the ballroom accompanied by an after party with a live band playing in the background. It really will be a wonderful evening for us all. I do hope you clear your calendar because this is a celebration you won’t want to miss!

Save the Date: November 14, 5:30pm; look for more information headed your way soon.

Happy 35th Anniversary CREW-St. Louis. As always, continue to spread our mission: CREW-St. Louis advances, educates and supports women to influence the Commercial Real Estate industry.

I very much look forward to raising a glass with you on November 14. Cheers!

Highest regards,

Angie Earlywine
