There are very few honors greater than being recognized by your peers. The people you consider your friends, your friendly competition, your circle, your tribe…whatever you call them, it is from that group that you find some of your closest confidants and most impactful cheerleaders. To me, the most powerful thing about CREW, is that even though we migrate from allies to competitors or somewhere in the middle, at the end of the day, we are a group of people committed to the success of one another.
Each year, CREW accepts nominations from the membership for the open board slate. Each potential candidate has an opportunity to submit an application demonstrating their ideas on how to continuously evolve not only the committee they are interested in leading, but the chapter. A nominating committee meets and discusses the applications and works together to finalize the slate. The slate is sent out to be voted on by the entire chapter.
It is my privilege to introduce the incoming 2019 Board of Directors, a group of women who have shown their commitment to each other as well as the success of our chapter. These ladies have distinguished themselves to their peers as leaders and have generously donated their time and energy to the improvement of CREW as a whole. We are so excited to see how they continue to propel us forward in the future.
