Dear Fellow CSI Blue Ridge Members:
After a very long winter, spring has seemed to come and go. It appears that the majority of architects and contractors are in full summer swing this year. It’s the busiest I have seen in a long time, and that is good news! We, too, in our chapter stayed busy to bring you quality programs and networking opportunities. Our presenters this year were engineers, a Ph.D. researcher, a construction attorney, and material manufacturers. We hope you benefited from the programs as well as enjoyed fellowship in our dinners.
