2020: Our Year of Unrelenting Vision


We are an unstoppable organization filled with unstoppable people. From the network we have built to the programs we tout, CREW New Mexico truly is unstoppable.

There was an article published on August 1, 2018 on entrepreneur.com entitled 15 Traits of Unstoppable People by Deep Patel. I remember, as I read the article, I was reminded at every turn of this organization of the women, and men that make it great. The article spoke of vision, persistence, and goals, but it also spoke of surrounding yourself with other high achievers, being a voracious learner, and remaining humble in your quest for greatness. We are an unstoppable organization filled with unstoppable people. From the network we have built to the programs we tout, CREW New Mexico truly is unstoppable.

In our quest to be voracious learners, CREW New Mexico is launching CREW Brew. This is a dialogue within our membership that will be moderated and lead by those within our ranks. We hope to have topics such as social media, communication and negotiation tactics, and recruiting and retaining quality talent in our industry. If you have something to teach, we will make sure we give our membership an opportunity to learn. The knowledge and experience we have within our chapter is unimaginable, we simply need to tap into it.

I also want to encourage you to surround yourself with other high achievers. In order to do this you need to do more than come to the meetings and Member-Only events. You need to be entrenched in the committees that make this organization run. Find your passion. Give your tenacity to making this chapter better and in return it will make YOU better. Allow the committees to help you broaden your skill set and be a better leader in your industry. There are so many opportunities to serve, one of them will be a perfect fit for you. Do you like to know everything that is going on in our chapter? Join communications. Do you have a servant’s heart and love to help others? Outreach may be a perfect fit. Do you want to know who is joining our chapter before everyone else? Membership might be where you thrive. Do you have a vast network and wish to help continue the strong programming we have? Events is looking for you. The professional and personal development opportunities that are available to you do not end locally. If you want to provide your skills on a global level, CREW Network has task forces and committees that you should consider.

I am so honored and humbled that I was asked to lead this organization. The strength and heart I see in each one of our members is awe-inspiring. The path blazed by our past leaders will allow us to continue our trajectory. I have a vision for 2020 and it begins with each of you. Let us support, encourage and strengthen each other with a vigor that is unmatched and our possibilities are endless.
