Profiles in Power Nominees and Finalist:  I am very pleased to report that we had 4 CREW Austin nominees for the ABJ Profiles in Power this year.  A special shout-out to DeLea Becker, Beck-Reit Commercial Real Estate, Marcy Phillips, AMLI Development Company, Jennifer Seay, Art + Artisans and Kristi Simmons, Aquila Commercial.  Kristi Simmons was named 1 of 20 finalists this year and Marcy Phillips was a prior year finalist.  CONGRATULATIONS, Ladies!

CREW Network Foundation Donations:  We are just 10 donations away from hitting our CREW Austin chapter goal for foundation donations.  A huge THANK YOU for those that have contributed.  Making a donation this month is a great way to help create opportunities for more women in Commercial Real Estate.  Please consider donating as we make this last push.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated!  

September Events:  I am pleased to announce that on September 13th we will be hosting our first Downtown Austin Architectural Boat Tour, a joint event with CREW Austin and AIA Austin!  Please join us as we recognize and celebrate the work of CREW Austin & AIA Austin members that has helped shape the fabric of our city’s downtown, as experienced from the lake!

I am also very pleased to announce what is sure to be a fantastic luncheon program on September 18th, “Pioneering Environments – Space is now a Service” focused on digital disrupters in the commercial real estate arena.  We hope you will join us!

CREW Network Convention and Marketplace:  The early registration discount ends on Friday, September 7!   Attending CREW Network Convention is a great way to grow your leadership, further your professional development and gain invaluable inspiration and insight from thought-provoking speakers, all structured within a platform designed to maximize your business networking.  Need another reason to attend?  According to a recent survey, women who participate in conferences are twice as likely to receive a promotion and three times as likely to receive a 10%+ pay increase within a year! 

As always, if you have any comments, questions or concerns, please let your leadership team know! 
Thank you for your continued dedication, commitment and passion to CREW Austin.
Make it a great month!

Kindest regards, 
Marcy Phillips
CREW Austin President
