Digging Out

It has been a while since my last letter right before the holidays...I hope you all were able to find time to enjoy the holidays with Family and Friends...  

As tiring as it has been to keep digging out from under our numerous winter storms, I have taken some solace in that it could have been worse... Look at our friends up in Boston... They’ve had more snow in a one month period than they’ve had in any one year period before...So on behalf of the Boston Chapter I will jump on the “No More Snow” bandwagon.. 

On this topic of nasty weather, I want to say thanks to all the Chapter members who despite the wintery weather conditions have been able to contribute to and/or attend our first two Chapter meetings of 2015...At those meetings, we shared the first two sessions of our four-part “Integrated Project Delivery” Series with two engaging presentation/panel discussions titled “Let’s Get Started: Setting the Path to Successful Project Delivery” and “Design and Design Documents”. Thanks to our session leaders Mary Hosley, Bill DuBois and Oliver Wilhelm for their time & efforts and our two showroom partners, Hafele and BSH/Caesarstone.

Session 3 “Product Selection & Construction Documents” is slated for our March 11th Chapter Meeting at the Koroseal Showroom and Session 4 “Procurement, Construction, and Facility Management” is scheduled for our April 8th Chapter Meeting at the Haworth Showroom. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Lastly, I wanted to let you all know that the CSI Northeast Region Conference is on the horizon. The conference is being hosted by the Worcester County Chapter will take place in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The Conference dates are May 14-16, 2015, the theme is “The Art of Sustainability”, and a number of sessions will be held at The Clark Institute. Additional information is on the <a href="">Northeast Region website</a>.

Keep warm and I hope to see you at an upcoming Chapter Event!
Tom Lanzelotti
President, Metropolitan New York Chapter CSI
