  • Region Conference- The Great Lakes Region Team has started the year off strong with the Region Conference.

    Bob Schrock and the Cincinnati Chapter did a great job as hosts. Those in attendance got a good head start on leading their chapters by learning about Chapter best practices around the Region. The Leadership breakfast was lead by Institute President- Elect Casey Robb. Joy Davis, Institute Community and Web guru taught us how Institute sees the future of CSI.

    Next year is Cleveland, start your planning today by setting aside these dates: July 18th- 20th, 2013.

  • Region Website- an interesting item came out of some discussions at the conference. Do you know there is a Great Lakes Region Website?

  • Regional Relevance-Every month I hope to expand our discussion on the Relevance of CSI Great Lakes Region by expanding on the idea that as design and construction industry professionals living and operating in the Midwest, we have a unique perspective that speaks only to others that live and work in the Midwest Region. We can help each other by staying in better communication with each other on design and construction issues in our area as well as communicating Trade Show Events, Education Seminars, and other CSI sponsored events. Please send me an e-mail on concerns, news, events and I will expand and share with our GLR community. It is my hope to have a forum for such discussions on our website in addition to maintaining a GLR comprehensive calendar. In the interim, please e-mail me at Looking forward to hearing from you.
