Well, Hello there!
As I began trying to write my first
president's message of 2016, I found myself reflecting on my few years within
the chapter, since joining in 2013. I
entered as a director, almost from my first meeting and served for two
years. During my first year, I was
thrilled to pass the CDT exam. That
achievement was extremely rewarding for me and I continue to recommend everyone
pursue the various certifications provided by CSI. I was then honored to be asked to serve as
president-elect for the 2015 term. And
this year, I find myself following in a long line of presidents that have
served this chapter since the first group began in 1959. For 57 years and counting, the CSI Richmond
chapter has been represented by a diverse and dynamic group of individuals from
every facet of the construction industry.
It is this level of skilled diversity among our membership, that first
sparked my interest and has continued to develop my focus for contributing to
its success. Our strength as a chapter has been built on the foundation of
sharing our various skills, experiences, and knowledge.
I'd like to thank our membership for
electing me to serve as the Richmond chapter president for this upcoming
year. As with all beginnings, one can't
help but feel a sense of optimism and potential. I look forward to an exciting new year ahead
I would like to welcome back all of
our standing chapter members, as well as extend a welcome to our incoming new
members. I urge you all to get involved, attend the events, and experience as
much as possible from your membership. We have a great year of educational
programs, tours, and networking events. Our dedicated group of Officers and
Directors have started planning our yearly calendar, beginning with our New Member
Recognition Event in September. Stay
tuned for additional information coming soon!
Please enjoy your summer!
