CSI Denver's 60th Anniversary
Today’s post features our recent CSI Denver’s 60th Anniversary celebration! Steve and I are thrilled to be a part of such a great group of people here in Denver.
If you are unfamiliar with CSI, let me bring you up to speed. CSI stands for Construction Specifications Institute. “Founded in 1948, CSI is a national association of more than 8,000 experts in building construction and the materials used therein. We are dedicated to improving the communication of construction information.”
CSI provides education, certification, networking, relationships, events, etc all with the mission to advance building information management and education of project teams to improve facility performance. There is a variety of professionals within CSI including architects, designers, owners, manufacturers, product reps, general contractors, and more.
As manufacturer’s representatives, we see immense value in being a part of CSI Denver’s local chapter. We have a strong group of 130 members here in Denver and hope to continue growing!
CSI Denver’s 60th Anniversary
60 years is a lot to celebrate! The Denver Chapter was founded in May 1959. We have been awarded Outstanding Chapter 14 times, hosted 3 National Conventions, and are the 2nd oldest Chapter in the Southwest region.
The celebration included Chapter history, member recognition, awards, memorable stories, and more!
With the theme “60 years of Flight” we had Sputnik and Major Tom cocktails, a jazz trio, and a lovely dinner.
Steve has been a member of CSI for 7 years and this upcoming year is serving as 2nd Vice President.
Pictured here is Morayma Salas - Southwest Region President, Mike Bensky - Chapter President, Patricia Joseph & Hannah Kane - Emerging Professionals Committee.
During the evening we celebrated with Chapter Recognitions & Awards. This is a really fantastic part of being a member of CSI, you can grow within the association and develop relationships with other professionals within the industry.
