Programs Committee

The Programs Committee plans and arranges topics and speakers for our luncheons, held at various locations throughout the Puget Sound on the 2nd Thursday of each month. Speakers are selected based on timely and relevant regional real estate projects and engaging and impactful topics. The committee selects diverse speakers and content that will excite, inform, and inspire both CREW members and guests. Committee members interface with panelists and moderators, assist with greeting attendees, and introducing the speakers at each luncheon. Past topics have covered a range of subjects from public and private development projects, the local economy, and trends in commercial real estate across all sectors. Speakers include real estate developers, financial experts, brokers, corporate real estate executives, and city and other governmental officials with a Women of Influence event held every Fall.
