Communications Committee

The Communications Committee is responsible for researching and implementing creative, effective ways of connecting internally with CREW KC members, and externally between CREW KC and the commercial real estate industry regarding the goals of the CREW Kansas City Chapter, committee goals, and topics of interest. This is accomplished through publishing a bi-monthly news email, capitalizing on public relations opportunities, ensuring the website is current, and crafting an annual marketing campaign.

Community Connections Committee

The Community Connections Committee strives to connect members of CREW KC with one another and with others in the community. The Committee builds internal connections through a member-to-member mentoring program and builds external connections through charitable projects and outreach to students and others interested in pursuing careers in commercial real estate. The Committee is charged with selecting CREW KC’s charitable partners and projects. The Community Connections Committee, often in collaboration with other CREW KC committees, has planned and held events to benefit the CREW Network Foundation and the Women's Employment Network, sponsored Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure teams, hosted “Think Pink” happy hours to benefit Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and recruited volunteers to work on several Habitat for Humanity houses. Other charitable events include donation drives and volunteer events to support Rose Brooks Center.

Golf Committee

The committee is responsible for coordinating CREW KC’s annual golf tournament. The tournament provides members and guests with a fun event, held at a popular area course, in which to network, strengthen relationships, market their companies and get a deal done! A portion of the proceeds are donated to the CREW Network Foundation, the only foundation dedicating its resources solely towards advancing women in the commercial real estate industry. No golf experience required to serve on this committee! The golf committee is a seasonal program, and a great way for members looking for ways to gain additional organizational involvement.
