There are many CRE organizations, why CREW?
CREW is the only organization that encompasses the full scope of commercial real estate disciplines, where a project could be implemented from beginning to completion, all with fellow members. CREW New Mexico members are brokers, lenders, title/escrow officers, appraisers, attorneys, architects, and everything in-between. CREW is also the only association focused on influencing the CRE industry by advancing the achievements of women.
How often do you meet? What’s the time commitment for membership?
CREW New Mexico meets monthly and alternates between holding luncheon or breakfast meetings and professional development/networking events.
We encourage members to get involved on a committee to help maximize your membership experience. Committee participation can vary, but each committee normally has a one-hour meeting or conference call monthly.
