Welcome to the CSI Honolulu Chapter!
It is my pleasure to serve as your Chapter President for 2019-2020. Our chapter was founded 52 years ago. When I look at the list of presidents that came before me, I am humbled to be given this opportunity to continue the legacy of our very active and nationally recognized chapter.
Our Chapter meets monthly on every third Tuesday. We feature knowledgeable speakers from the construction industry, visit various job sites on Oahu, network with our peers, and most of all- we make time to meet new friends and catch up with old acquaintances. Most of our meetings feature CEU’s, learning units, enjoy fantastic food and libations!
We also encourage all our members to take advantage of CSI’s certification programs, especially the CDT. Whether you are a design professional, specification writer, construction manager, or product representative, the CDT will help you with your career. You can enroll directly with CSI or take one of the classes we offer locally. Check with our website often to see what dates our classes and study groups are offered.
Be sure to come every fall to our Pacific Building Trade Expo. This is a one day not to be missed Expo co-sponsored by CSI Honolulu Chapter and AIA Honolulu. This year represents the 20th anniversary of this show where hundreds of exhibitors attend, and there is always a robust program of timely and topical AIA/CES registered seminars. These free seminars complement the Expo’s trade show. Mark your calendar this year for October 1st.
If you are interested in becoming more active in the chapter, please feel free to reach out to me or any board member or committee chair for more information. We have volunteer and sponsorship opportunities of all kinds that are guaranteed to be rewarding.
On behalf of the board, and all the past presidents of our Chapter, mahalo for visiting the CSI Honolulu Chapter and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!
