A publication of Autumn issue 2014 sponsored by CRE Finance World Autumn 2014 59 IV. Goal: The Education Committee will identify areas of demand for a CREFC education program framework by assessing member’s current educational needs, existing industry education programming and areas for development consideration. Key Initiatives • Create a strong and dedicated sub-committee composed of leaders strictly devoted to developing a needs assessment survey for CREFC members to gauge demand and value for future educational content/programming. • Develop focus groups and in-person interviews to validate survey findings. • Identify the need and value of a CREFC certificate/certification program. • Conduct inventory of existing educational programming within the CRE lending industry and universities and identify potential educational partnership within those universities. These goals and initiatives will pave the way for the development of all future CREFC educational materials and programming and help CREFC become the premier leader in education for the CRE finance industry. If you have questions or feedback on CREFC’s educational programs, are interested in hosting a program or are a young professional looking to become more involved in CREFC, please contact Sara Thomas at sthomas@crefc.org.
