CSI Mt. Rainier Chapter
President's Message October 2021
The Mt Rainier Chapter of CSI got off to a great start this year with our September meeting with over 40 members and guests in attendance. Several of your chapter leaders including immediate past president Poppy Bushnell, chapter secretary Susan Williams and myself traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to attend this year’s national Conference. Keynote topics included expanding Diversity, Inclusion and Equity within construction industry and CSI itself, Leveraging Data to inform the next generation within the construction industry, and How the future is already here and how the industry should embrace the innovations already available to us.
In addition to those and many other great breakout sessions, we were in attendance as CSI national unveiled CSI’s new logo and the meanings behind it. We also gained insights into the new CSI reorganization that is currently underway. And finally witnessed the national awards banquet where members and chapters were recognized for their achievement. The Mt. Rainier and Puget Sound chapters of CSI were awarded Outstanding Chapter Commendations. The Portland Chapter was awarded the Outstanding Contribution Award and the Communications Award. Many CSI members including our own Susan Williams were celebrated for completing the Certification process.
CSI national has spent the last year developing and rolling out tools for local chapter leaders to use to help improve CSI from the local level up. Your Chapter leadership team will be working with the NW Region and National leadership to begin to implement and take advantage of all of that effort.
