Happy New Year… 2018 is here and we have the ability to accomplish great things this year. But let’s look back on 2017 and be appreciative of all of our members and vendors that help support CSI. There are many people that help keep CSI moving forward and I personally want to say… Thank You.

2018 will bring some new changes: The Revitalization Event happening in March is moving along and with Amanda Schoonover leading these event we will be in for some new creative ideas for vendors and forward thinking speakers that will excite the design and construction community. I am so looking forward to this event and that “we moved the Cheese”. Thank you for all the work that the committees are accomplishing.

We will be starting to prepare for the change of the board in June. I am happy to report that Cindy Sturgill is back with us and will be leading the Louisville CSI in 2018-19 as President next year. She is dynamic and will continue to move us forward. We are looking for volunteers that would like to participate on the board and lead committees. Voting for the board members will take place in April/ May. Please feel free to reach out to Cindy Sturgill, Brent Guiliana, or myself.

Great Lakes Regional Conference is coming to Indianapolis, April 19-20. If you have interest I will be traveling to Indianapolis and we can carpool. There will be some great seminars on leadership positions and I would love the company at the conference. Look for the link coming soon.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, January 11th at 5:30 pm. We will have our meeting with NAWIC and our presentation will me Moisture Mitigation: Planning for Success. This is an approved, AIA, IDEC, and USGBC presentation. I think this will be a great presentation and I look forward to seeing everyone there.

CSI will be collecting for Wayside Christian Mission in the month of January, February and March. Look for the box at each meeting. April we plan on serving a meal at the facility. Hope you can help us to support Wayside. (List of items needed further in the newsletter.)
