President’s Message

January 28, 2022

My name is Sarah Mancuso and I am proud to serve as your 2022 CREW Silicon Valley Chapter President. Together with the board of directors we aim to continue the charge of those who came before us, elevating and empowering women in commercial real estate.

Your CREW SV board of directors brings a diversity of thought and experience and I encourage you to reach out to them. The board members and their positions are listed below; introduce yourself and ask about how you can get more involved in our organization.

In a time where the world feels more polarized than ever and many of us have experienced loss or setbacks, CREW SV strives to be a place of inclusivity and connectivity. This is a differentiator for our chapter and nearly everyone who participates in our programs and events notices it. No one embodies these qualities more than our immediate past president, Nathan Donato-Weinstein. Thank you, Nate, for always lifting others up and having our back.

Back to Basics in 2022
In 2022 we’ll be going back to basics, starting with our members and sponsors. Through our dynamic programming and events, we will attract, retain, and elevate our members and sponsors. We will continue to support the initiatives of chapter, whether it be our Rising Leaders mentorship program, our UCREW outreach, or highlighting our member-to-member connections. And we will give back to our community with our local scholarship and a day of community service.

If you haven’t renewed yet, don’t wait! You have until February 14 to renew your membership

If you are CREW-curious, attend a program available to non-members or reach out to one of the board members to see how CREW SV might benefit you and your business. 

If you are a reluctant networker, reach out to me! I have always struggled with networking and am here thanks to many who gently brought me along through the years.

Last, a huge thank you to our sponsors. You are critical in our ability to provide programming and opportunities for our members to connect. If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities, please reach out to Dee Armstrong.

Please connect with me anytime if you’d like to get involved or simply discuss an idea for our chapter. I can be reached at
