Find the Right Membership Level for Your Firm

CREFC member firms participate equally in effecting change within the commercial real estate finance industry. Each membership level grants a firm one voting representative and unlimited employees on their member roster (except for academic and start-up levels) and full benefits for every registered employee. Our membership levels are determined by the firm’s level of activity within the industry. If your firm qualifies under more than one criterion, you should register at the highest level of activity.

Dues Payment and Timing

CREFC membership is based upon a calendar year. For current CREFC members, renewal notices are sent in October for the following calendar year and are expected to be paid by year-end. For new members who join after the first quarter of the year, dues payments will be prorated on a per-month basis.

Member Roster

Once your firm becomes a member, your employees should register individually to take advantage of conference discounts, participate in forums, join our Young Professionals Network or the Women’s Network, and join our mentorship program.

Please contact Mike Flood at 202-448-0860 for more information regarding CREFC membership.
