2019_Awards_Banquet_-_Recap.pngThe 2019 Annual Awards Banquet was a fun night of celebrating CSI Chicago. 70+ attendees came out to help us reflect on our achievements in 2018/2019 at The Cliff Dwellers in Chicago.  We thankfully had a break in our rainy weather and everyone was able to enjoy the breathtaking views of Chicago from the 22nd floor patio and enjoy the sunshine.


Peter Grotenhuis, 2018/2019 President opened the Awards Banquet thanking everyone for helping him accomplish his goals this past year and made it clear that it takes a lot of help from Chapter Members to deliver the programs, events and content CSI Chicago puts on in a year.  He then noted we should be proud of the achievements we made this past year.  The following are just a few of the achievements he highlighted.

  • Gained 65 new members
  • Increased our average Chapter Meeting Attendance to 119
  • Improved communication to members and nonmembers across all marketing channels.
  • Elevated charitable outreach initiatives and established a foundation to compliment these efforts


As Peter mentioned it takes a lot of members to make our Chapter successful.  He along with Chris Walsh and Scott Conwell recognized the members and sponsors that helped make this year a success.  Check out the full list of 2018/2019 Recognition & Award Winners and our 2019 Annual Awards Photo Album.

Thank you to our event sponsor, Custom Building Products, for your support!
