Kristi Johnsen      Kristi Johnsen is a Senior Associate in the Greensboro, NC office.  Kristi graduated from the University of Alabama with a BS in Commerce & Business Administration with an emphasis on accounting.

Pictures from March Crewtini

In March we gathered at 1618 Midtown for the first Crewtini of 2017.  We had over 30 people in attendance with 2 hours to network.  As you can see by all the smiles, the event was a huge success!! We are very thankful for our event sponsor Bentley Mills.  They had the opportunity to tell the group about their services and had wonderful bags for all of us to take home.  Elizabeth Colamarino with Colmar Contracting won the Crew Foundation Spot Light for the evening and also had a chance to introduce her company to our group.  For more information on both these companies, please click on the links below.

PTCREW goes to Hollywood

Last week our delegates, Tessa Leftwich and Bill Sinclair traveled to Hollywood, CA to represent our chapter at the 2017 winter leadership summit which was held on February 9th and 10th at the Loews Hollywood Hotel.

These summits serve as CREW Network’s “leadership laboratories,” where our delegates receive leadership training, participate in association business, and demonstrate their skills in a supportive environment.  As well the invaluable training they receive, they also spend two days networking with other CRE professionals from all across the nation.  If you have interest in attending these summits in the future, please see any board member for more information on how to get on the leadership track.   Below are some pictures they took to share their experience with the rest of us.
