Bi-Region Conference
The 2015 Bi-Region Conference will be with the North Central Region on May 7th-9th, 2015 in Chicago, IL. Please visit the website for Preliminary Conference Schedule and Hotel information.

Chapter Leadership Training
The Great Lakes Region is continuing to work on leadership powerpoint presentations. Please look for our next presentation on "CSI Chapter Secretary" on January 12th at 4 pm. CSI GLR Secretary, Dan McCloskey will be leading the session. All Chapter Secretaries should attend as well as anyone interested in the position. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Jack Morgan (

GLR Chapters
Sadly, we will be sunsetting two chapters, Ft. Wayne and Saginaw Valley. They have been struggling for years and the Great Lakes Region continued to communicate and encourage involvement of members. Thad Goodman, Great Lakes Region Director will be presenting the recommendation for sunsetting these two chapters to Institute Board in the coming months. I recommend the CSI members in these areas to join a nearby CSI Chapter or join CSINext Chapter, the virtual chapter.

As always, your input is important. Please feel free to e-mail me with any ideas for improvement or any questions. Join me on LinkedIn! CSI Members in the Midwest make CSI Great Lakes Region great!

Find Joy in the Season,

Ivette Ramirez Bruns CSI, CCS
Great Lakes Region President
