President - CREW Vancouver 2022

Lauren MacKinnon 2022 President

Welcome, 2022!  

I am filled with great excitement as we enter a fresh new year full of opportunity and the possibility for deeper connection within our network.  

In reflection of the past two years, I have immense pride and admiration for what CREW Vancouver achieved through one of the most challenging times many of us have ever experienced.  It’s through the support of our valued members, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters, as well as incredible board leadership and direction that we moved the dial so exponentially on our mission.  Thank you for your continued support of CREW – you are genuinely what energizes our organization.  

Looking ahead, I believe CREW has never been more relevant or essential to our industry.  We’ve all faced an incredible challenge these past two years and have learned to be agile, to persevere in the face of adversity, and to support one another within our communities.  I encourage each of us to use the lessons we’ve learned to create a positive impact around us however we can.  

I’m excited that this year will bring more opportunities for networking, face-to-face connection, and progressing our mission to accelerate the advancement of women in commercial real estate, and the various sectors connected within our community.  I’m proud to be part of an organization that truly walks the talk in everything we do.  With the execution of our many initiatives, including leadership and professional development opportunities, mentorship, award recognition of the talented individuals within our community, and networking opportunities to help build careers – CREW continues to be a space for us to grow and flourish.  

I thank our 2021 CREW Vancouver Board for their hard work and dedication, and I’m filled with confidence and excitement as we welcome our 2022 CREW Vancouver Board; a fantastic group of talented, trailblazing leaders who will carry the torch for our mandate and continue to gain momentum for the many years to come.  

I’m honored and humbled to serve as your 2022 CREW Vancouver President and look forward to connecting with each of you over this year.
