2014 Spring Leadership Summit

Attend the 2014 CREW Network Spring Leadership Summit in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 12-13. These summits serve as CREW Network's "leadership laboratories," where you can receive leadership training, participate in association business, and demonstrate your skills in a supportive environment.

Leadership Summit Hospitality Table Sponsors

Chapter delegates are required to attend, but you're encouraged to participate if you have an interest in developing your leadership skills, expanding your network outside of your local market or becoming more involved at the local and Network levels. Nonmembers are invited to attend as well.

The activities kick off with a welcome reception on Thursday evening, and then Friday features a full day of programming, with the Council Meeting in the morning, followed by development training through the afternoon.

Frequently asked questions questions

I am not a delegate for my chapter -- may I attend the meeting?
Yes. CREW Network members and guests are welcome and encouraged to attend the Leadership Summit. Delegates and CREW Network board members will have assigned seats during the Council Meeting for voting purposes. All other CREW Network members and guests are welcome to sit at the guest tables.

What is the dress code for the meeting?
Business casual is the suggested attire for the event. Although hotels try to maintain meeting room temperatures at a comfortable level, there is a chance at some point during the meeting you may become too hot or too cold. Layered clothing is suggested in order to remain comfortable.

Will there be takeaways that I can share with my chapter?

Please bring cash.
