The new Empire Award will be presented for outstanding contributions at members-only social event on Wednesday, August 21st
Exceptional service merits an exceptional award – and now a member who has shown outstanding dedication to the goals and ideals of the New York Chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women’s Network (NYCREW) will be recognized with the new Empire Award, to be presented for the first time on Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at the organization’s Strictly Social Members-Only Rooftop Event.
The event will be held at The Top of The Strand, 33 West 37th Street, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with the award presentation a guaranteed highlight of the evening.
“NYCREW already pays tribute to specific achievements at our year-end Holiday Gala but I felt it was important to create one overarching award to recognize outstanding service, something for all of us to aspire to,” says NYCREW Board Member Faith Hope Consolo, Chairman of Douglas Elliman’s Retail Group, and the creator of the Empire Award. “I was thrilled that our board agreed. And of course, what else could we call this honor but Empire, after our beloved state?”
A committee consisting of the current NYCREW President, Past President and President-Elect will choose the recipient. Several other local chapters of CREW have created similar awards.
“Since our founding in 2001, NYCREW has seen some of the most turbulent times in commercial real estate history. Yet our leaders have shown an unflagging dedication to our goal of helping our members achieve even greater success by working together,” observes NYCREW Past President Karen Dome, a senior associate at Marcus & Millichap. “Now that we’ve become a well-established organization, the board wholeheartedly agreed with Faith that it was time to create the Empire Award.”
Registration for the NYCREW Rooftop Social event and award presentation is complimentary, and limited to NYCREW members only. Advance registration is required by August 15.
