It sure has been hot lately.

How hot is it?

It’s so hot, the birds are using potholders to pull their worms out of the ground.

It so hot, the fire hydrant is whistling for the dogs.

It’s so hot, that I am sweating like a politician on election day.

All jokes aside, I hope you are surviving this heat wave.

As for our Chapter News, we have some great local and national events coming up.

Locally, on August 11th there will be a Chapter Meeting at the Office Environment Company (1136 W. Market Street) at 11:30 AM. Our speaker will be Mitchell Kersting with WorK Architecture. He will be telling us about the Lofts at Bradford Mills. The old truly has become new again with this project, where the 198,000 square foot Mill will create a place to experience the richness of this treasured landmark in the form of a new re-energized use. It should be a great program, so please join us.

Nationally, the CSI CONSTRUCT Show is quickly approaching. It will be in Austin, Texas from September 7th – 9th. If there are any local chapter members that are planning on attending the show, please let me know.

Behind the scenes, the Trade Fair committee is working hard on planning the 30th Annual AIA/CSI Trade Fair. Please save the date for Tuesday, February 21st. The Board of Directors are currently working on many various initiatives to improve our local CSI Chapter. I am grateful for everyone’s hard work.

September Chapter Meeting – Sponsorship Opportunity

Our September 8th Chapter Meeting will be a “happy-hour” joint meeting with the AIA-CKC, at Luckett & Farley (737 S. 3rd Street). We will meet on their second floor patio, for drinks, hors d’oeuvres, networking, and games. Festivities will begin at 5 PM and wrap up at 7 PM. This event will provide an opportunity to be the drink sponsor. We are not asking for a fully stocked bar, with bartenders. We simply want a sponsor to provide some coolers with drinks. You can get as expensive/crazy as you want with the drink menu, however, I think beer, wine, soft drinks, and water should suffice. This sponsorship is offered on a first come, first served basis. Once a sponsor comes forward, it will be no longer available. If you have any questions, or if you would like to be our drink sponsor, please let me know ( 

Everyone stay cool, and drink plenty of water.
