    October's CSI Austin Chapter Meeting was presented by Mr. Ronn Finn (Petroleum Engineer University of Texas Austin, Texas Real Estate Broker, EP & TREC Instructor), as he provided an overview of Phase I environmental reports, and a variety of topics related to site decontamination. In addition, Mr. Cameron McElhany provided an overview of the revamped CDT; stay tuned for upcoming programming to help you gain this sought-after certification.

    In addition, the board has been busy representing the CSI Austin Chapter at a variety of events. Past-President Ms. Marina Reynaga and Secretary Ms. Kayla Maines attended the BEC Annual Symposium at the Line Hotel on October 18, 2018. Marina and Kayla were able to market the chapter to a variety of building professionals interested in the technical aspects of building enclosures and the other vendors at the conference.
    Also, Vice President, Mr. William Massingill attended the CSI South Central Region (SCR) Planning Meeting & Conference in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. During this time, William networked with the other chapters with SCR, including, but not limited to, Dallas, For Worth, Amarillo, Oklahoma City, and more. It is always a valuable opportunity to discuss ways to improve the chapter for our members with region leadership, in addition to our peer organizations in other cities.
    Finally, Vice President Cameron McElhany and I attended CONSTRUCT 2018 in Long Beach. CONSTRUCT is CSI's annual conference. We attended education sessions, social events, and chapter leadership meetings. We were able to network with national and SCR leadership. It is clear the national organization is prioritizing support of the local chapters. One way this vision is supported is through the implementation of the Dynamic Chapter Program. We are currently evaluating implementing this approach into our chapter, and hope to bring you exciting content in the future!
