What’s the difference between CREW Network and CREW Fort Worth membership?
CREW Fort Worth is an affiliate organization of CREW Network. Therefore, a member of CREW Fort Worth is also a member of CREW Network. This global Network is comprised of 75+ affiliate organizations with a total membership of more than 11,000 CRE professionals.
While the overall purpose and goals of CREW Fort Worth reflect those of CREW Network, CREW Fort Worth has its own unique structure allowing it to meet the needs of its market.
