Tara Steell, President and Alanna Remington President-Elect, had the opportunity to attend the 2016 CREW Winter Leadership Summit in San Antonio, Texas this January.

Winter Summit 2016

Highlights of the Summit included:

Leadership Certificate Program

The Leadership Certificate Program was attending by CREW Calgary members Tara Steell, Alanna Remington, and Elvie Reinson.  This is the first year of this program and the first session was run by Emory Vice Provost, Michael Sacks.  The 2016 program sold out!  Stay tuned on details for 2017.

Canadian Chapters Delegate Meeting

Tara and Alanna met with CREW VancouverCREW MontrealCREW Toronto, and CREW Edmonton where distinctly Canadian issues were discussed.  The exchange rate, chapter building, and the 2017 Spring Leadership Summit in Toronto were hot topics around the table.

CREW Network 2016 Council and Business Meeting

The new 2016 CREW Network Board and 2016 Committees were introduced, including our very own Tara Steell as one of five delegates chosen for the CREW Nominations Committee.

Chapter delegates shared triumphs and challenges with their governance and programming

Amy K Hutchens delivered a dynamic development training session “Ignite Brilliance in Your Communications." Amy walked delegates through elevating our communication style, to use strategic questions to get more out of our interactions. This training applies to leadership positions, negotiations, and any position that hinges on communication (all of them!).   

 San Antonio’s Riverwalk was a wonderful backdrop for conversation and connections with CREW Network Delegates from across North America.    

Interested in attending a Leadership Summit – the next one is June 16-17, 2016 in Detroit, Michigan!
