CREW Atlanta September 2022 Letter to Membership

September 1, 2022

Dear CREW Atlanta Members,

How fantastic was our sold-out Empowerment Speaker Series event with best-selling author Ryan Jenkins last week? I know I learned so much about how important connection is to employee retention and productivity, and am eager to finish his book and start implementing ideas to help my team feel more engaged and connected. I was also thrilled to be able to present our gift to Atlanta Women’s Foundation, a critically important organization that we have contributed $4.7 million to throughout our history.

Looking toward 2022 CREW Network Convention in Chicago next week, please make sure you have registered for the Southeast Chapter Mixer on Wednesday evening. Join CREW Atlanta plus our friends from the southeast chapters for a soiree at The Dawson – one of Chicago's hottest spots! This is a terrific way to connect with all your friends from CREW Atlanta and meet some new ones from our neighboring chapters.

And speaking of conventions, the 2023 CREW Network Convention will be taking place in Atlanta! We are already planning some amazing events and have lots of incredible sponsorship opportunities. If you are already a CREW Atlanta sponsor, someone from the Sponsorship Committee will be reaching out to you soon to make sure you are maximizing your sponsorship dollars. If you are not yet a sponsor, now is the time! Reach out to Chapter Director Katie Smith for a customized sponsorship program for your business.

Finally, I want to thank all the wonderful volunteers that make CREW Atlanta possible. From engaging events to our flow of communication and a variety of special initiatives – it takes a team! Thank you to each and every one of you who serve on or chair a committee. We are profoundly grateful for your contributions.

Happy Anniversary CREW Atlanta!

Ellen W. Smith
