President's Report





Welcome to April!




Sadly, this is yet another April where no one gave me a green jacket. I hope one day I can earn a green jacket, but I know Augusta National does not award green jackets to excellent “Nintendo Wii Golfers.” Oh well!




Anyways, April is already shaping up to be great, as our Trade Fair Committee just had their Kick-Off Meeting for the 2018 AIA/CSI Trade Fair. It is not too late to join. If you would like to join the Trade Fair committee, please contact me. Our chair, Cindy Sturgill and the rest her committee are sure the make the 2018 Trade Fair a great one!




On Thursday, April 13th we will be having our monthly chapter meeting at Finn’s Southern Kitchen, where we will grab a quick bite to eat and then tour the Germantown Mill Lofts (nearby). Old becomes new again, with a new purpose.




Finally, I would like to remind you that the CSI Great Lakes Region Conference is quickly approaching. It will be May 18th- 20th in Akron, Ohio. For further information, please visit the website: www.csiglrconference.com. All Chapter members are invited to attend.




I look forward to seeing everyone at our Chapter Meeting on Thursday, April 13th.




Take care,






Brent Guiliani

Many Hands Make Light Work.

Your Hands Are Needed

 So it is said, that many hands make light work. As for our local CSI Chapter, in recent years, it has been few hands doing lots of work. We are grateful to those who have volunteered their time to serve, but we invite more to join them. We currently need volunteers to help with all sub-committees, however, we have an immediate need for a Vice-Chair of the Trade Fair Committee. Consider this your call to serve! If you would like to serve, please contact Pat Sloan (psloan43@bellsouth.net) or myself (Brent Guiliani, brent@bainesinc.com).


Time for new officers to step forward. If you have a desire to serve the chapter in this capacity please contact Brent or Julie

Thank you!

It will include 184 modern “loft style” apartments with many historic accents that will make a beautiful blend of old and new.

The site will have generous parking and green space.   Brasch Constructors (performed construction on Westport Village) is combining with Pimsler Hoss Architects to spearhead the management of the renovations.
