Ms. Brittain noted, “Jenna did a tremendous job of leading CREW DC through one of the most challenging years in our four-decade history. The chapter’s commitment to its members, sponsors and stakeholders was met by providing virtual venues for support and leadership, innovative new programs that increased engagement and welcomed dialogue, and by finding ways for members to lead and be successful in spite of the challenges presented in 2020. I look forward to working with her as our immediate past President and this remarkable Board of Directors in 2021.”
