Call For Committee Members

It's Time To Raise Your Hand For A CSI Chicago Chapter Committee


As a volunteer organization, we rely on the ongoing volunteer efforts of our members. All of our committees play an important role in helping our chapter accomplish our mission to advance the greater Chicagoland area for the Design and Construction communities by implementing the following: knowledge of building information management, construction technology, and project delivery methods to improve facility performance while fostering relationships and promoting education.

Whether you are new to CSI Chicago or celebrating a milestone anniversary, we encourage all of our members to get more involved in the chapter by volunteering to be on a committee. Participating in a committee can be a very rewarding experience both personally and professionally. It allows you to build your leadership and team skills, share your insights, and meet like-minded Chicagoland AEC professionals.

Join a FY2022 (July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022) committee by submitting a volunteer form by May 31, 2021. If you have any questions about our committees or volunteering with the chapter, please reach out to FY2022 Chapter President, Jennifer Friedland at jennfriedland@gmail.com.
