President's Message

Hello All,

Forces for Change, the theme of the 2010 West Region Conference, reflected the economic uncertainties of the time, uncertainties that remain entrenched in our minds today. CSI has led the way in finding solutions to the challenges, and continues to provide answers for us along the road to recovery.

It is good to know that as a member of CSI, we have access to resources that effectively improve our ability to understand and find solutions to challenges that face us in the construction world today. We rely on CSI resources for standardization, formatting, education, and construction news, but to many of us, the most valuable resources of the organization are its members.

Being part of a diverse network of professionals from the A/E/C community and industry gives us access to a wealth of knowledge. From students emerging into their careers to seasoned professionals, the CSI network holds opportunities to advance each of our careers.

Locally, we are fortunate to have dedicated volunteers that have been the heart and soul of the Fresno Chapter for many years. As long as I can remember, the Chapter has delivered monthly educational programs and held the annual product show. It is my responsibility to keep the torch burning by supporting these efforts, and in the process, promote the CSI mission.
