WCREW members are empowered by sharing their knowledge and experience with others in their community, while also learning from the insight and know-how of others. That’s why the focus is on networking programs such as professional development breakfasts and informative Catch a Bite (lunches hosted by a member represented company), Catch a Drink (happy hours for casual networking) an annual golf outing, and the signature Showcase Award ceremony where unique and innovative commercial real estate developments in Wisconsin are recognized at an awards banquet.
