Young Professionals Network

The mission of the Young Professionals (YP) Network is to provide a platform for junior CRE finance professionals to foster meaningful business relationships and gain relevant industry knowledge through networking events, seminars and panels.

YP programming events are developed by YPs – so the content is current and applicable in their daily work. Each YP educational event includes a networking aspect to build and foster industry relationships with both peers and seasoned industry leaders. YPs are surveyed by region for ideas for future programming to ensure educational and industry needs are met.

Additionally, there are networking only events held in a more relaxed atmosphere where YPs can mingle among their peers.

There is a discounted rate to conferences and seminars for those CREFC Members 30 years of age or younger. To sign up for the 30 and Under Program Rate join the network and ensure that you check off the box “I would like to sign up to receive the “30 and Under Program Rate”. You will be required to submit photo ID to be approved for the discounted program rate.

The Young Professionals Network hosts multiple events throughout the year in a variety of cities across the country. Events developed to provide YPs within the industry with timely, informative and educational content, as well as networking opportunities. CREFC Members and member firms sponsor and host these events. 

Upcoming Events 

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak becomes a growing concern in the United States, the health and wellbeing of our members, conference attendees, and CREFC Staff remains our top priority. Given the health issues and high degree of uncertainty that prevails today as a result of the spread of COVID-19, CREFC has made the decision to postpone all upcoming events scheduled through Spring 2020.  We will provide full refunds to those registered for any of these spring events.  Please view the CREFC Alert for additional information.
