From the President

“Where Everybody Knows Your Name”

When was the last time you attended a chapter event? We
may not be Cheers, but DC CSI strives to be a group where
members know your name, profession, passions and
needs. Our world is moving online more and more for
relationship building, and whether you agree that this is a
good idea or not, there is no doubt that connecting in
person is still one of the best ways to build your career.
We’re set to have an awesome year here at DC CSI.
Committee members (a small, but mighty group) have
been actively working to put together a great fall schedule
and are now working on Spring 2019. We’ve moved to
Eventzilla platform to save some pennies on our
registration needs, so be aware of that as you register for
chapter events.
This fiscal year, I want to challenge you to:
Attend – contribute, join a committee, tell folks who you
are and show up for meetings. Share the love – guests are
only $20! Encourage manufacturers and consultants to
sponsor events and the chapter. Their support helps us
create spectacular and valuable events. Finally,
Contribute your time and energy. We need your expertise
and your perspective.

See you soon!
Lauren Anderson, CDT
