Commercial Real Estate Women, a national networking organization, has a new Charleston chapter.

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.

The local chapter’s board of directors:

  • President, Anita King of Ink Architecture.
  • Delegate, Allison King of CC&T Real Estate Services.
  • Secretary, Angela Black of Limehouse Properties.
  • Treasurer, Liza Hall of Wachovia.
  • Communications co-chairwomen, Kristin Ormand of Patterson Pope and Ivie Parker of Parker-Sims Interiors.
  • Membership chairwoman, Margaret Brockinton of Carolina Retail Property Inc.
  • Programs and events chairwoman, Pamela Mogle of HQ/Regus.
  • Mentor co-chairwomen, Jennifer Audi of Coldwell Banker Commercial and Ruth Marie Milliman of WRS Inc.
  • College of Charleston liaisons: Tim Allen and Tracie Mitchum.

How does one find out more about the local chapter? I was a member of CREW for years in another city, and would love to get involved!
