In 2015, Sharon Nelson re-Incorporated the NYS Chapter of the NWPC which had gone defunct for 10 years and then became President shortly after incorporation.

From 2015-2020, The NWPC-NY and subsequently (in 2017) CREW hosted nonpartisan classes for Women interested in “Running for Public Office” at City University of New York (The Murphy Institute (2015-2017 then at the School of Professional Studies (2018-2020). The Class at CUNY was discontinued as a result of the Pandemic. In 2021, CREW launched the Ruth Hassell-Thompson Institute of Civic Engagement which is an online virtual vocational institute – allowing the institute a national presence and audience. Classes are hosted/available on the Professional Development channel of CREWTV. The classes are both live and on-demand for enrolled students.
