CREW Network Accomplishments for Women in Commercial Real Estate


Judith Nitsch, CREW Network 2014 President was kind enough to take some time out of her busy schedule to talk with me at the ICSC Recon Conference in Las Vegas in May 2014.

Energetic and articulate are the two words that come to mind when I think of Judy.

With a considerable amount of enthusiasm, Judy announced to CRE Radio that Hillary Rodham Clinton is going to be the the keynote speaker at the CREW national convention at the Loews, Miami Beach Hotel from September 30th through October 2nd. Former Secretary of State, former US Senator and First Lady and possible candidate, Clinton, will be speaking at the luncheon on Thursday, October 2, 2014.

Other speakers include, Steve Forbes, Katty Kay, and Crystal Washington.

Judith describes the book, The Confidence Code, written by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. Their book discusses how women are confident in their work, but don’t have the same amount of confidence in themselves, that men do. I know, I should have asked her why, but maybe that’s a question that I can ask Katty Kay and Claire Shipman.

We get Judith’s explanation why she became more involved in CREW Network and how she has benefited from her involvement. I will say this over and over; you get out of an organization only what you put into it. Your wasting your money just paying dues and not getting involved. Judy is testimony to getting involved.

Finally, we discuss the status of the Glass Ceiling. Judy aims to smash that Glass Ceiling and I am sure that she will. She has my support all the way.
