    President's Message

    June Richmond CSI President’s Report

    Our PresidentWE made it. One year. CSI “New Year” starts in a few weeks.
    Our chapter goals have been obtained and surpassed, by leaps and bounds!

    We have new members, new connections, and new fresh ideas to start the process all over again!

    Mary Ann Petry, your new CSI Chapter President has assembled a fantastic team to lead our chapter into the next year. She and the group of officers & committee chairs have already been working on a list of activities, learning programs and goals for 18-19 that I feel will elevate our chapters standing in the architectural and specifier community.

    Our annual Year End Picnic and Chapter Awards will be held on June 21st at the home of Reggie & Cindi Nash on Cherokee Road. Please be on the lookout for the announcement and the link for signing up. This program is always a relaxed and fun time on the banks of the James River with good food, cold drinks, and great chapter fellowship!

    Our Product Show was a ‘HUGE SUCCESS’! Jon and his committee really raised the bar and put on fantastic program. Our chapter has already signed up for next year with the Westin. May 23, 2019 is the date and start looking for information later this year. The CSI Product show has grown and is now an event that the design community looks forward to each year. Congratulations on a job well done!!
    Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank YOU, the members of our chapter. WE have had a great year, established new relationships and friendships, and built a TEAM(s) that will help sustain a vibrant and growing organization. As I step away from the helm, I will not dissolve into the shadows. My goal for our chapter is to always move forward, but never lose sight of the path we’ve traveled on. Sometimes a look in the rear-view mirror brings a reality check we all need, a fresh perspective on what we’ve done and where we're going. I wish Mary Ann and her team a successful and prosperous term at the helm. Working together we can all accomplish much.

    The following certifications will be included in the program:
