A Letter from Our CREW Atlanta President

Written by: Jodi Borges-Bradley
Dear CREW Atlanta Members,

I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to reach out to you personally to let you know that the CREW Atlanta board and committees have been working tirelessly behind the scenes on our COVID-19 response. Our mission of transforming the commercial real estate industry by advancing women globally is still our top priority and we are finalizing a plan to ensure value to each of you despite the changing global landscape.

We recognize that this is a very difficult time for many as we are all experiencing the impact of COVID-19 in different ways. Over the coming weeks, we hope to be a local resource as well as a community that bolsters its membership through these trying times. Therefore, we wanted to share the following updates with you.

Upcoming Signature Programs and Events
We are currently planning to reschedule all in-person events through the end of May. If conditions change, we will certainly amend our plan. In the meantime, we are looking into opportunities for virtual happy hours and coffees. We know that keeping those connections with your fellow CREW members is as important as ever.

For our much-anticipated Placemaking Through Art Signature Program, we are securing a future date and will be announcing it soon. Our annual golf tournament has been shifted to August 25th and will remain at Piedmont Driving Club. All updates will be located on our website.

Member Support
We appreciate our members and realize that for many this may feel like a downtime in your member activity. To the contrary, there are many valuable resources available through CREW Network including their recent series of Zoom conferences, which can be found here. Likewise, now is a great time to revisit your CREWBIZ profile and reach out to our nationwide network.

Industry Leadership
More than ever, it is important for our membership to be informed of changing guidelines and regulations that affect our industry and business in general. To that end, we are going to be sharing industry information via social media and the blog. We welcome you to reach out to our communications committee with any information you believe is pertinent to our membership and encourage you to contribute your expertise to our blog.

Also, our local CRE associations have joined forces. We invite you to participate with us in an information sharing, collective forum with your peers in the Atlanta commercial real estate industry. This forum, The ATL CRE Collaborative, encourages community members to share successes, challenges, provide constructive feedback, bring questions and provide perspective in all manners related to the Atlanta commercial real estate industry. Visit: https://bit.ly/atl-cre-collaborative (or https://www.linkedin.com/groups/12384145/) and request to join.

Thank you for your continued support during these unprecedented times. We welcome any questions that you may have and look forward to reuniting as a community as soon as possible.

Stay well,

Jodi Borges-Bradley
President CREW Atlanta
