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.
