CREW Atlanta April 2022 Letter to Membership

April 5, 2022
Dear CREW Atlanta Members,

This year, CREW Atlanta is celebrating 40 Years and Advancing as we honor our past and celebrate our future. If you have not yet purchased your ticket for the 40th Anniversary Celebration on Tuesday, May 3rd at the Atlanta History Center, do so now because it will be an evening to remember. The early-bird deadline has passed, but you can still get your ticket until the April 15 deadline.

Of course, the reason we are celebrating is our success in influencing the success of the commercial real estate industry by advancing the achievements of women. Much of this work is supported by the CREW Network Foundation. I would love to be able to announce at the 40th Anniversary Celebration that we have achieved the Chapter Challenge trifecta, but I need your help! Please make your gift here – no amount is too small. We are 2/3 of the way to meeting our trifecta goal:
  • 100% of board donate – done;
  • CREW Atlanta chapter donates $1,000 – done;
  • 50% of CREW Atlanta chapter’s membership donate – we are at 26%, so let’s get this done!

If you love CREW Atlanta, like I love CREW Atlanta (and I know you do!), please consider volunteering as an ambassador to welcome our newest members. Our new members are excited to become part of an organization that advances opportunities for women in the commercial real estate industry. They would love to benefit from your experience to make sure they are making the most of their membership. It does not take a lot of time, but it is so impactful. Please reach out to Amy Stanitzke if you are interested in welcoming our newest members.

Spring is in the air, and I hope to see everyone at the 10th Annual CREW Atlanta Charity Golf Tournament & Clinic fundraiser for the Atlanta Women's Foundation at the Piedmont Driving Club on Tuesday, April 19th. This year, we will be featuring a special networking breakfast followed by a shotgun start and our popular golf clinic. Only a few spots remain, so register now. A huge thank you to our sponsors and the Signature Events Committee!

I hope to see you some our many events that are coming up this month: the exciting Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Event on Thursday, April 14, the exclusive ACE Behind-the-Scenes Tour of The Battery Atlanta on Wednesday, May 18, or one of our many CREW Connects that occur weekly throughout the city.

Happy Anniversary CREW Atlanta!

Ellen Smith
President CREW Atlanta
