During the month of February you will have an opportunity to choose the persons you want to lead the Middle Atlantic Region and the Institute. Granted we are not a political organization, but the direction determined by the persons you elect will determine the programs and influence the Construction Specifications Institute can offer our design/construction industry. I recommend you go to the CSI Annual Election information found under the Community/CSI Members tag in the Institute Website, CSInet.org, to check out the candidates for the Middle Atlantic Region and our candidates for Institute Office from our Region.
Ray Gaines FCSI CCS is running for Institute Secretary and Margaret Chewning FCSI CCS CCCA and Marvin Kemp CSI CCS are running for Institute Director from the MAR. Please give Ray your support as Institute Secretary. He has served us well in the past 4 years as Institute Director and there are many initiatives still on the table that need his support. Regarding the Institute Director’s position, please give careful consideration to the experience and history of the two candidates when making your choice.
The electronic ballots will be available on CSInet.org in February 2015, so as a member in good standing in the Institute, be on the lookout for your notice to make your voice heard with your vote for the Officers of the Institute and the Middle Atlantic Region.
