Winter CREW Network Leadership Summit.
Elena Cutshall, Secretary to the Board, Amy Hurst, President Elect and I are headed to the winter leadership summit hosted by CREW Network in New Orleans on February 14th and February 15th.  I’m always inspired by the programs presented at the leadership summits and am excited to see what ideas and information are in store for Elena, Amy and me.  Elena and Amy will take over the leadership message in March to share those ideas with you. 
Thank you for being a part of CREW Austin!
