Our History

Women In Commercial Real Estate Nashville was an idea first discussed in October of 1991. Armed with the concept of an organization to encourage networking among women in commercial real estate, the first meeting was held in 1992. With 13 women in attendance, at the February 1992 meeting, we decided upon Women In Commercial Real Estate Nashville as a name for our organization, and elected our first officers: Chuck Collins, President; Trina Ralls Williams, Program Chair; Leslie Pomeroy, Secretary; and Pat Briley, Treasurer.
