What's the difference between CREW Network and IndyCREW membership?
IndyCREW is an affiliate organization of CREW Network. Therefore, a member of IndyCREW is also a member of CREW Network. The global CREW Network is comprised of 75+ affiliate organizations with a total membership of more than 11,000 CRE professionals.
While the overall purpose and goals of IndyCREW reflect those of CREW Network, IndyCREW has its own unique structure allowing it to meet the needs of its market. IndyCREW uses the network's list of qualified fields of commercial real estate (QFCRE) to guide its membership experience prerequisite, and determines its own dues, programs and member activities.
How often & what type of events do you hold?
IndyCREW is a very active chapter with numerous events throughout the year.
Our monthly luncheons are on the third Tuesday of every month (luncheons fees are $40 for members and $55 for nonmembers). Nonmembers can attend two luncheons per year.
We also host numerous networking events throughout the year, including an annual golf outing in July, evening social events, mixers, speed networking, golf clinics and breakfast meetings related to a professional development topic. Many of our networking events are open only to members.
