Hello Fellow CSI friends,

Spring is underway and we’ll be on to summer soon! Wow how time flies, right?

The West Region Conference was in Hawaii this year. Thanks to the Honolulu Chapter for hosting such a big event with Volcano tours, Golfing and three Chapter Challenges, along with classes and many more events. Stay tuned for more information to come about the Region Conference for next year in Sunny San Diego.

The next big event that is coming up is the National Convention in Baltimore, Maryland. I am sure there will be lots going on there to explore. The big celebration in Baltimore is the Bi-Centennial for the War of 1812; so there will be ships in the harbor and parades. Plus, lots of energy from CSI Construct as people arrive from all over the country. So plan early and make your reservations. It will be lots of fun!!

Some of the upcoming programs to put on your calendar for the Chapter are:

  • May – Leed v4 Overview
  • June – Member Appreciation night and installation of Officers
  • July – Golden Gate Bridge at 75, design and more
  • Aug – Exterior Wall Thermal Performance
  • Sept – Parking Day
  • Oct – High Speed Rail
  • Nov – Code Update
  • Dec – Holiday Party

Stay tuned for more fun as we roll into summer and fall. As always, feedback is welcome. If there is something you would like to do for the Chapter, please let us know. The more you put into the Chapter, the more you will get out of it. Please invite your friends, colleagues, members from other organizations; all are welcome.

The last thing I want to leave you with is the Student Fund that has been activated in the Chapter by a generous donation from Albert Wege. This fund will help more students be able to attend our Chapter meetings, assist in sponsoring them to attend Conferences, Conventions, and in general getting more involved in the Chapter and CSI as  a whole. I ask all of you to please consider donating to the fund as you register for the monthly meetings.

With that, I look forward to seeing you at the next Chapter meeting.
