NEWSNOTE President’s Message
As the new president of the CSI Austin Chapter, I want to take this opportunity to extend my thanks and gratitude to David Loveless for his dedication and leadership to the chapter over the past two years. I look forward to David’s continued, strong support. I also want to thank the members of this year’s board for their continued support, including: Larry Whitlock, President Elect; Baker Kersey, Vice President; Tyler Lusk, Secretary; Scott Mokry, Treasurer; Jody Boatman, 2015 Director; and America Alva, 2016 Director. I can't forget to extend a special thanks to Corey Ball for continuing to serve as Program Chair. I look forward to working with all of you over the coming year. In the coming year, the board will continue to focus on increasing current member participation as well as seeking to add new members to the chapter. For our chapter to be successful we need participation from architects, engineers, specifiers, contractors and product representatives. Our chapter should be providing meaningful experience and expert information to all of our members. Unfortunately, we recently heard from a member who struggled with renewing their membership and, in the end, did not renew for valid and understandable reasons. Dave Watts, AIA, LEED AP
We want this chapter to be a beneficial experience for both the member and their employee, but we can't do it without your help an this chapter’s feedback. We want you to honestly answer the question, "What is it you want to receive in return for being a member of ?" We, the board, want to hear from all of you. Please feel free to call or email any of the board members with feedback on how we can improve our organization. Our goal is to get back to basics and create a stronger, more beneficial chapter for our members -- but we can't do it without your help!
