They Are At The Post!.......

Annnnndddd we’re off!

That’s right folks, it is May.  And when the first Saturday in May rolls around it is time for the Kentucky Derby, what could be considered the most famous horse race in the world.  Hundreds of thousands of people, from around the world gather, in Louisville, Kentucky the first weekend of May to take part in festivities and watch what has been dubbed “The Run for the Roses” and the “Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” So, who do I think is going to win this year’s Derby?  Well…if I was a betting man (and I am), I would place a “Boxed Superfecta” (4 horses to finish 1,2,3,4 in any order) bet on CSINext! No folks, I haven’t lost my mind….

Special Delivery for CSINext!

Roses are red, violets are blue, boy I wish winter was over don’t you? Slowly we are getting there folks, while February may be ripe with sounds of snowplows and shovels for some, the sounds of cheers, jeers, and ripped up college basketball brackets is just around the corner in March.

Well would you look at that?  A large box from the “Programs Department,” and one from “Certification Preparation.” Well, why wait…lets open these bad boys up and see what we have.

Hoping everyone in the CSINext family had a safe and joyous Holiday season!

Taking a quick look back at 2022, what a great year it was here at CSINext.  Our membership grew to over 120 members from within the United States and around the world, we had several members achieve their CSI professional certifications, we collaborated with Columbus State Community College to present the CSI CDT Bootcamp, Margaret Fischer of the Architectural Woodwork Institute knocked it out of the park with the AWI Casework Storage Standard presentation in December to finish out the year, and our Chapter sponsors continue to grow and support us in making CSINext one of the most unique and noted Chapters within CSI.

With all that, you are probably wondering if 2023 can top it right? The answer is a resounding YES.

Being Thankful, Pumpkin Pie, & CDT Bootcamp

Hello again everyone, is it already November?

Yes it is…and exciting times continue here at CSINext!

Here in the United States, we are at the beginning of the holiday season, and it all starts November 24th when we celebrate Thanksgiving.  Way back in the 1600’s, this traditional gathering, started by early colonists, celebrates life’s blessings.  It is always a time of gatherings, celebration, and indulging in way too much pumpkin pie – but nonetheless it kicks off one of the most joyous times of the year.  So, this month, we here at CSINext celebrate you…our Chapter Members.  Without you and your support of not only CSI and CSINext, none of what we share here would be possible. May you and your families have a joyous and safe start to the holiday season wherever you may be!
