CSI Richmond Report 03 for March 2018 Print

    President's Message

    Welcome to March!

    It seems that it has been a really wild ride on the weather crazy train this month!

    March Madness

    From high winds to snow and ice, it has been a hard to keep production up on the jobsites. With the time change and now that spring is getting closer, I feel that we have great opportunities to make up for lost time due to weather!

    Our chapter is growing by a substantial rate! In our BOD meeting last week, we have acquired since September, 10 NEW MEMBERS! Far exceeding our expectations and over the 10% increase in the goal. So, don’t rest on our laurels, we can achieve a 20% increase if we keep up this pace! We are growing again, and I feel we are leading the Mid Atlantic Region in membership growth and retention! We will find out at the regional conference.

    By the way, I need to mention that the Mid Atlantic Regional Conference will be held in Winchester Va on April 19-22.  Please make every effort to attend this close conference and support the other Virginia chapter! There will be carpooling discussions as we get closer to the event, please stay tuned to for further details.

    Our monthly meeting/networking event will be held at Kjellstrom & Lee GC on March 22 @530-7pm. The topic will be an overview of the current VCU Masterplan as presented by Rich Sliwoski. Please check the website for further information and tickets to the event.

    And last but not least…..OUR PRODUCT SHOW IS FAST APPROACHING!

    Jon Anderson, the chairperson, and his committee has been diligently working the email chains and we are approximately 60% SOLD! We have several presentations to review and it looks to be a very exciting and successful event. Keep watching your email for further updates and information to be released soon!

    Sorry for the lengthy message, but we are moving fast and growing! Please make every effort to attend our events, you won’t be sorry!!

    Thanks for all you do for YOUR CHAPTER!

    Note: Last month I hid a clue to a “racing reference”, that was won by Jon. Roosting is a Motocross term used to refer to the dirt flying up!

    Now, there is an “Easter Egg” in this month’s report, one that is “musical”.

    winchester downtown

    The Northern Virginia Chapter CSI is taking the 2018 Middle Atlantic Region Conference to new heights, with a new location, and with new events. The Winchester, Virginia area, as well as other key historic landmarks in the western part of Northern Virginia, will be showcased.

    There's so much science involved in Building Enclosure technology that conference attendees at MARC2018 will benefit from speakers who bring the latest in expert research, technology, code requirements, and specifications recommendations to this critical aspect of building construction.

    While in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, enjoy the mountains, country air, pedestrian mall shops, museums, historic revolutionary and civil war sites, and numerous regional tourist attractions.

    Plan to join us at The George Washington Wyndham Grand Hotel in Old Town Winchester, VA in 2018!

    The Middle Atlantic Region CSI includes Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC, an area that represents over 1000 professional members. Special one-day registrations will make the technical programs available to the construction industry from the entire local region.

    Opportunities for sponsors to participate in exhibiting at this event will be published soon.
