Dear CREW Members,

‚ÄčThe CREW New Mexico Board of Directors is committed to making sure we are providing safe options for our members to connect. As you know there have been more mandates made by the NM Department of Health and the Governor’s office to once again close breweries and indoor dining facilities, and as a result, CREW New Mexico felt now was not the time to plan a happy hour event at El Pinto.  With that being said, we are still going to hold our July CREW Brew virtually, on the morning as originally planned.  

While saddened by this change of events as I really do miss each and every one of you, I am excited to share with you some news regarding the upcoming CREW Network Convention.  The CREW New Mexico Board of Directors has voted to host several small viewing groups around town allowing our members to reap the benefit of Convention while spending some time together in small groups, and at no cost to individual members. Included is a link to the Google Sheet we are using to gauge interest in order to determine the number of registrations needed.  Please mark all the sessions you would be interested in attending, as well as, your email address to make it easy to contact you. Please note that there are several sessions occurring at the same time. Be sure you are only signing up for one session in any one time slot.  If you are interested in hosting one of these viewing parties at your office please email me at

Another event that I am excited to announce is the CREW 5K we are planning for September 19th.  This event is going to take the place of our annual Foundation Fundraiser.  The cost to participate in our 5k is $35.  Keep an eye on your CREW View for more details and the cool-looking tee shirt you will receive as a participant.  As a reminder, the money raised is in an effort to support the CREW Network Foundation whose mission is “to support future female leaders as they pursue university-level education that will lead to a career in commercial real estate”. If you wish to make an additional donation to CREW Foundation, the donation link is:

Looking forward to seeing everyone at our August 12th Zoom luncheon meeting where we will hear from Lisa Leyva with the Albuquerque International Sunport about the growth and development surrounding the airport.

Thank you all, for being such a positive and integral member of our chapter.  I look forward to a day when we can all be together again.  Until then, stay well, stay safe and please let me know if I can do anything to support you.
