WELCOME TO CSINext 2017 / 2018!
Hello everyone…where ever you may be I hope each and every one of you are having a great summer! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be leading the Chapter this year. And how much I am looking forward to working with the membership and an outstanding Board of Directors. This will be my third year working with the Chapter Board and I can truly say I have enjoyed every minute of it. Being President of the CSINext will be challenge but one I am looking forward to!
For all of our new and returning members….Welcome to the new year for CSINext!
I will quickly update everyone on some exciting chapter news and what is in the works for the 2017 / 2018 year before we really get rolling in September. So everyone can get back to enjoying summer activities…..here we go:
Chapter Membership - is UP and we are GROWING! Our chapter grew by over 20% last year! Our membership now spans 23 different states and 3 countries. How cool is that? We are very excited to have new members in the CSINext family. WELCOME!
Monthly Chapter Programs – many exciting programs in store for this year. Facility Commissioning, BIM-Linking 3D Components & Project Schedules, Mind of the Specifier, in addition to presentations from our Chapter Sponsors are just few of the topics being finalized as we speak. All meetings are at 12 Noon – EST US. Keep an eye out for the schedule!

The slate of educational sessions this year is plentiful so don’t miss out! And….(drum roll please)…..our own Chapter Treasurer—Daniel Hargreaves—has been chosen to present “The Accessible Restroom: Why Doesn’t the ADA Just Give Me the Solution”. Congratulations on being a selected speaker Daniel! If you have never met Daniel or heard him speak make sure you don’t miss it!
