It is an honor for me to accept the position president of CSI,  an organization with a proud past and an exciting future. 

I joined the CSI family in 2008 just when our economy was beginning to face some real challenges.  While this was a crucial time to network with the local design market, I began to find the organization was exactly that…. A family.  A solid group of design professionals and product experts with a genuine interest in providing quality work in our construction market.  They care and they show it.  My goal is to maintain this culture.  Everyone is a professional in their own field and has something to contribute. We would like to acknowledge the past president, Cindy Sturgill.  Cindy,  we are grateful for your service and the time and energy you gave to CSI over the last year and a half.  Moving forward I have been working directly over the last several weeks with Charles Netherton, president of AIA, to secure our 2019 Annual Holiday Event.  This year it will be held at the Filson Historical Society  on December 17th @ 6:30 pm -10 pm. Click here to get your tickets!

Charles has been a pleasure to work with and AIA has been well served to have him as their president.  We are excited to welcome in coming AIA/CKC president.  Our January event will be held with NAWIC again this year.  We will be announcing the details in the next couple weeks.  AIA CKC / CSI Trade fair  "Revitalize 2020" is well underway and will be held at the Mellwood Arts Center, 1860 Mellwood Ave.  We are grateful for Steve Goldstein and his leadership for this important event.

We have a great board of directors that I would like to thank, in advance, for your service over the coming months.  On a sad note we take a moment to say goodbye to our friend and fellow CSI member, Henry Thobin who served actively since 1964.  Henry served the industry as an architect for A. B. McCulloch Architects, UofL Office of Facilities Management, and the US Corps of Engineers and was a positive influence on many of CSI members leaving a beautiful testimony for us to follow.

We are very excited about the upcoming regional conference being hosted in Cincinnati this April.  It will be held at the Radisson Hotel, 668 W 5th St., Covington, KY 41011 on April 23 – 25, 2020.  Click here for more information on the Regional Conference.

The next year and half of serving the organization will be exciting to see.  As a chapter, 2020 will be our 56th year as a CSI chapter.  Below are people, events and committees to know:
