What’s the difference between CREW Network membership and Edmonton CREW membership?
Edmonton CREW is an affiliate organization of CREW Network. Therefore, a member of Edmonton CREW is also a member of CREW Network. This global Network is comprised of 70+ affiliate organizations with a total membership of more than 11,000 CRE professionals.
While the overall purpose and goals of Edmonton CREW reflect those of CREW Network, Edmonton CREW has its own unique structure allowing it to meet the needs of its market. Edmonton CREW uses the CREW Network Qualified Fields of Commercial Real Estate (QFCRE) to guide its membership criteria and experience prerequisite, and determines its own dues, programs and member activities.
How often do you meet? What’s the time commitment for membership?
Edmonton CREW typically holds four luncheon and schmoozes per year, and periodically hosts additional 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 once a month.
