CREW Cleveland 2018 Award Winners
CREW members enjoyed the view from the Crown Plaza ballroom at the holiday lunch December 5th.   2018 Sponsors, Committees, Chairs, Champions, and Board Directors were recognized and thanked for their role in an eventful year.  There were plenty of cheer and chocolate prize winners courtesy of Sneider, Smeltz, Speith & Bell. 
 
The heart of the event was announcement of CREW Cleveland’s Annual Award Winners:
 
The Deborah Rocker Klausner Leadership Award went to Linda Green, Chicago Title.  Linda is a 29 consecutive year member of CREW including her service as a CREW past president and board director.  In addition to her CREW contributions, Linda has served the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, participated in many local large scale rehabilitation developments, teaches title class at Case Western, and serves as a mentor to new underwriters and attorneys entering the real estate market.
 
Molly Woeste, McSteen was the recipient of the Rising Star Award.  Molly joined CREW during 2017.  She came forward to assist the Communications Committee and quickly stood out as a leader.  Molly started popping up at monthly board meetings to explore the organizational process and volunteered to wade in even deeper.  Molly will be joining the local board as Communications Director in 2019.
 
The Member to Member Business Award recognizes a local member who consistently demonstrates commitment to engage fellow CREW members.  Congratulations to Jennie Church, Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease for exemplifying the spirit of CREW.  Jennie’s endeavors will be submitted to CREW Network for global consideration at the 2019 Annual Convention.
 
Mary Gerding, Hylant is the 2018 Member of the Year.  2018 was a banner year for CREW Cleveland.  Our Chapter hosted the Network Leadership Summit in June and celebrated 30 years of advocacy for women in the field of commercial real estate.  Mary emphasized the extraordinary efforts of all members and sponsors, it’s a team effort!
 
Introductions to the 2019 CREW Cleveland Board of Directors ensued with news of a karaoke kick-off event.  Get those voices ready!
