Greetings…..As the end of November folds into December it is time to be thankful for our family, friends and life that we lead. It will be a busy 6 weeks and then we will be entering into 2018. Hard to believe that 2017 is over and we will be making new resolutions for our careers and our family life. I must say I am thankful to my husband that supports my work endeavors and the crazy schedule I keep, to my 16 year old son that appreciates that his mom is a “working mom” and believes that all marriages should be equal. To the CSI Louisville chapter for supporting me thru half my tenor as their president and to all the members that give countless hours every year to make CSI a great organization that we are year after year.
On December 12 th we are going to celebrate our annual CSI/AIA Holiday Party. This is a time that both organizations come together as one to applaud our industry. We gather together to see our old friends
and to make new friends. Come out to the Tim Faulkner Gallery at 6:30 to celebrate 2017 and I will buy you dinner. LOL
We are gaining momentum for our new version of the annual trade show. The look and feel will be different, expect the unexpected and really read the emails that will be coming in your mail soon with
the new format. This is one new and different event you will want to be a part of, the “cheese” has officially been moved.
We will not be having our monthly meeting in December but January we will be gathering with NAWIC
for our first meeting of 2018. The topic will be Moisture Mitigation, presented by Schonox. This is an
AIA, IDEC, and USGBC certified program. Look forward to this great program.
I will leave this thought for the month of December with you…It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.  It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.  - Agnes M. Pharo
