Hello All and a Very Happy New Year!
My name is Katy Lumpkin and I have the honor of serving as your 2019 President for CREW Austin.  I’ve been a member of CREW Austin for nine years now and am consistently excited and impressed about our growth as a chapter in varied areas of commercial real estate.  Together with an awesome board of directors and the outstanding committees, I promise to do my best in 2019 to continue the work we have done to make CREW Austin a success.

January Luncheon. 

The January luncheon will be held at the UT Club on January 15, 2019.  A panel of great speakers will be addressing the availability of developing affordable housing here in Austin.  The panel will discuss the site acquisition, funding, design/construction and operation of an affordable development.  Please join us for Land to Homes: Developing Affordable Housing in Austin. 

January - New Member Orientation.

Immediately before the January Luncheon, our membership committee will host a new member orientation.  If you are a new member or a member who wants more information about the opportunities CREW Austin and CREW Network offer, please join us in the Dean’s Room at the UT Club at 11:00 a.m.

On February 6, 2019, CREW Austin and CCIM will hold the fourth annual Commercial Real Estate Summit at the downtown JW Marriott between 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  The new city manager, Spencer Cronk has agreed to be the key note speaker and there will be a developer panel as well as other great speakers. Be sure to save the date and please note that there will not be a February luncheon but be sure to look forward to the next luncheon on March 12, 2019. Registration for the summit is now open.
