The group’s goal is the fostering of women’s career development in a male-dominated industry, said Anita King, president of the local chapter and principal in the Mount Pleasant-based firm Ink Architecture.
Commercial Real Estate Women, known as CREW, includes women involved with commercial real estate in a variety of ways. Members are real estate brokers, attorneys, interior designers, architects, administrators, appraisers, accountants and other industry-related professionals, King said.
The group recently announced its board of directors and is finalizing its bylaws for review by the national CREW network, which has 68 affiliated chapters.
Nationally, CREW offers continuing education programs for real estate professionals and college scholarship programs. Working with the Carter Real Estate Center at the College of Charleston, the local chapter will offer opportunities for mentoring for students considering careers in real estate.
