The Membership Committee is responsible for retention and recruitment of CREW Miami members. Activities include identifying liaisons to develop new member relationships, designating Hospitality committee members to host tables at luncheons, and organizing a fall membership drive/renewal campaign. The Membership chair sets goals for recruitment and retention, oversees the application review committee which makes recommendations to the board, the recruitment committee, and the membership/renewal campaign subcommittee. The Hospitality chair organizes committee members to host tables at luncheons and to serve liaisons for new members, to ensure a high-touch experience for each new member. The Recruitment Committee strategically reaches out to prospective CREW Miami members in order to increase membership in underrepresented professional categories, including, but not limited to, C-Suite industry professionals, brokers, and developers. The committee, along with its chair, are responsible for researching underrepresented categories and inviting prospective members to attend CREW Miami events. The chair organizes and tracks the progress of each prospect. The chair provides this list to the Membership & Hospitality Committee Director for presentation to the board. The board reviews the list and may offer suggestions for additional prospects to be contacted.
