COIVD-19. Changes Coming.

The reports of how construction is moving today during the Covid-19 pandemic are varied.

Many segments are full speed ahead, others are shut down from state and local government.

Awarding Good Behavior

The Construction Specifications Institute is an association full of volunteer members who passionately serve each year. CSI has a committee that works each year to refresh and update the Honors and Awards Guide. It’s important for region and chapter leaders to be thinking about those who serve to help make CSI better.

Last year the release date for the publication was March 1, 2019. 

Take a moment at your next chapter or board meeting to look around the room and identify those who deserve some extra recognition. Also remember Region conference & Chapter award deadlines. For those who do the extra heavy lifting, be prepared to act once the new Institute Honors and Awards Guide comes out.

 It’s never too late to walk across the room and tell someone “Well Done!”

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” – William Arthur Ward
