Frequently Asked Questions

Who can be a member?

CREW Network membership is generally open to individual professionals currently employed, and with five or more years of experience, in a qualified field of commercial real estate. Many chapters also offer “Associate” or “Affiliate” membership for individuals who do not have five years of experience, or who do not work in a qualified field of commercial real estate. Consult the chapter website or contact us for additional details and specifications.

What are my responsibilities as a member? How do I get the most out of my CREW Network membership?

As with almost everything, you get out what you put in. The best and easiest way to get the most of your membership is to get involved. Expand your member profile by adding your biography and entering other information such as honors and awards, education, and more. Participate in the discussions in the Member Community, or post a question of your own. Join a chapter committee, attend events, and put the “Network that works” to work for you.

I have moved to a different company – what happens to my membership?

CREW memberships are based on each individual’s expertise and experience within the CRE industry. CREW memberships belong to the individual, not to the employer. If you change companies, please make sure you update your contact information with us so other members can still contact you. If you have changed industries and are no longer working in a qualified field of commercial real estate, your membership may not be eligible for renewal in the next term. Please contact your chapter for more details.

I have moved to a different location – what happens to my membership?

Again, CREW memberships are based on each individual’s expertise and experience within the CRE industry; CREW memberships belong to the individual. If you change locales, make sure you update your contact information with us so other members can still contact you. Your CREW Network membership will remain intact for the remainder of the membership term. If you relocate to an area without an existing CREW Network chapter, you may be able to renew your CREW Network membership as an at-large member for the next membership term. Contact us for information. If you relocate to an area with an existing CREW Network chapter, simply fill out the online Membership Transfer Request, and CREW Network staff will connect you with the new chapter contacts and advise if additional steps are needed to transfer your membership to the chapter.

The fine print:

CREW Network memberships expire annually on December 31, and are tied to the individual member and are therefore non-transferrable between individuals of the same company or otherwise. Membership dues are assessed annually and are non-refundable. Payments to CREW Network and/or its affiliate organizations for membership dues, event registrations, sponsorship, and other services are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes, but may be deductible as a business expense. Please consult your tax advisor.
