How often do you meet? What’s the time commitment for membership?
CREW Denver holds a wide variety to meet the diverse needs of our members. They include quarterly luncheons; small-scale, power networking evenings; informal lunch-and-learns; hard-hat property tours; a golf tournament; and our annual Women of Influence awards gala. How much time you want to dedicate to these opportunities is entirely up to you.
We encourage members to get involved on a committee to help maximize their membership experience. Committee participation can vary, but each committee normally has an hour-long meeting or conference call once a month.
How/when do I pay my dues?
Upon application approval, CREW Network will send an invoice for your annual dues, which you can pay online with a credit card or mail with a check. Once dues are received, you will become an official CREW member. Membership terms are on a calendar-year basis, so dues are invoiced each fall for the coming term.
If you join between July and November, dues are reduced by 25%. If you join in November, the full dues payment will be billed, but your payment will be applied to the following calendar year, effectively giving you 14 months of dues for the price of 12.
