President's Report

As we begin a new year at Greater St. Louis Chapter CSI, I am honored to be voted in as President of this great organization.  I have been involved with CSI for most of my career, off and on, and felt it has helped me in many ways.  It started in the 80’s, meeting and speaking with architects at the Product shows and then joining the group.  I believe it was Steve Gantner who asked if I’d like to be on the board.  Not knowing much about how CSI works I was hesitant but decided to give it a try.  Along the way I studied for the CDT and gained more confidence.  I attended meetings, joined the board and received input from my peers. And here I am now President.

CSI is a strong supporter of the specification community.  CSI supports professional success for AEC professionals and is CSI’s primary reason for being. The CDT credential is an important professional accomplishment.  It benefits all disciplines of the construction industry.  Project delivery is important to all.  Understanding specifications and contract documents benefits all trades from subcontractor to owner.  Each being on the same page and understanding the end results, the completed project.  Local CSI is actively engaged in creating a learning development and plan which will includes opportunities for future professional development directed to current and aspiring CDT certificants. I invite all trades to join us this year.

For those of you who are CDT certified, remember that there is a new requirement for retaining the certification.  Provide evidence of completion for 24 credit hours of professional development.  Attending CSI programs are part of this.  You can visit the CSI website for a list of programs.

We have a great line up of programs for this year.  Our Program Committee has done an excellent job putting all the pieces together.  We had a great tour of ballpark village to start the season.  Many non- members and members attended.  At each program we will discuss an aspect of the building and incorporate the theme of the Construction Documents Technology (CDT®).  There are many ways of getting involved.  You don’t have to be a member, although we encourage it strongly.  We have several ways of participating.  Go to the Greater St. Louis Chapter web site (https://stlouiscsi.org) for more information.
