CREC Leadership Team

Profiles of the national Leadership Team of the Cornell Real Estate Council

The Leadership Team Needs YOU!!

CREC is looking for leaders (and those who would like to grow into leaders) to join our Leadership Team. We are reaching out to alumni of Cornell University who work in the very broadly defined ‘real estate industry’ and to current students studying real estate or related fields, to encourage your involvement.

Just as Cornell was founded on a mission of diversity, so too are we focused on building a leadership team with diverse points of view, and varying degrees of experience and seniority. We would like to re-engage those who have volunteered in the past, and attract new leaders, including those who are in the early stages of their careers.

The current CREC Leadership Team includes a Board of Directors and an Advisory Board which oversees the following subcommittees: Development & Fundraising, Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Marketing & Membership, Programming & Conferences and University Relations.
