What’s the difference between CREW Network and CREW Tucson membership?
CREW Tucson is an affiliate organization of CREW Network. Therefore, a member of CREW Tucson is also a member of CREW Network. This global Network is comprised of 75+ affiliate organizations with a total membership of 12,000 CRE professionals.
While the overall purpose and goals of CREW Tucson reflect those of CREW Network, CREW Tucson has its own unique structure allowing it to meet the needs of its market. CREW Tucson uses CREW Network's defined qualified fields of commercial real estate (QFCRE) to guide its membership criteria and experience prerequisite, and determines its own dues, programs and member activities.

What is the application process and how/when do I pay dues?
CREW Tucson requires applicants to be sponsored by an existing member and to upload a current bio or resume as part of the application process. Once you have secured your sponsor, simply complete the online application form.
The membership committee will review your application and contact you. Upon approval, CREW Network will email an invoice for annual dues, which can be paid online with a credit card or returned via mail with a check. Once dues are received, membership benefits begin.
Membership terms are on a calendar-year basis, so dues are invoiced each fall for the coming term.
How often do you meet? What’s the time commitment for membership?
CREW Tucson typically holds a luncheon once a month, and periodically hosts additional professional development/networking events.
We encourage members to get involved on a committee to help maximize your membership experience. Committee participation can vary, but each committee normally has a one-hour meeting or conference call monthly.
How much are monthly luncheons?
Luncheons are $30 for CREW members and $45 nonmembers.

Many of our other events are only open to CREW members, as a benefit of membership.
