2010.12 President's Letter

Bookmark and Share Print this page

It’s holiday time and there’s excitement in the air. Many of us are somewhere between hopeful and anticipating a new and better year in 2011. CSI remains in the forefront of preparing its members and the construction industry for what’s next. For example, last month’s program on Technology Design Principles for Modern Buildings, presented by Greg Roberts of AKF Technologies, gave us some fascinating insight into the digital world that lives inside many of our buildings.

A major part of the holidays, though, is to put aside our concerns about the world and have some fun! The Chapter is going to do just that, with a magnificent Holiday Italiano! celebration in a new and different venue. Come on out to Long Island City (seriously, it’s only 2 subway stops from where we normally meet!) for some great traditional Italian holiday food, perhaps with some Italian holiday music, and definitely with some traditional CSI holiday fun! We are keeping the cost low so that you can be a part of the party.

The Board of Directors is working hard to reach our Goals, Objectives, and Strategies for the year. The new year is a great time to make a new commitment to be involved in the Chapter. Please find some time to read this document on our web site and perhaps something there will inspire you to help in making some of these ideas happen. There is bound to be something there that you will get excited about.

One of our objectives is to celebrate the Chapter’s 60th Anniversary in such a way as to put CSI and our Chapter “on the map” in the world of New York design and construction. The Co-Chairs of the Anniversary Planning Committee are Anthony Drummond and Arnie Kravitz. Contact them if you have an interest in working on this.

Have a terrific holiday season! I wish for you—and all of us—a truly prosperous New Year!
