From the GSR Institute Director,
I am working on my update from the board meeting last month but there are two items I would like to promote immediately.
First, retired or emeritus members must be voted on in person by the board. Our next board meeting will be the first week of February 2019. I mention this now because most like to present this transition at your year-end awards celebration. So to make that happen the board must approve in February as our next face to face meeting is not until June.If you would like to transition a member to one of these classifications, please follow the instructions provided in this link:
Second, the dynamic chapter program, deadline to sign up 10/21/18 and I know everyone is busy with their CSI year. I would highly encourage you to participate in the program. If need be, table some of your business and work with this program. Investing in yourself and chapter is time well spent. For further details, please follow the instruction provided in this link:
Lastly, I know the competition for your time is fierce, so I THANK YOU for your support of CSI!

Sorry for the delay in my reply, I have been working the ASLA show all this weekend. Let me say my intent was to be nothing but helpful as I was briefed on what happen to Memphis last year. My goal was to let everyone know the process. I do hear some concerns and I can assure you I will take them to heart. From what I know, by laws are regulated by the state. Every state has their own twists and turns. My understanding is a lot of these requirements are because of the state that CSI is registered. However, please let me research this further and get back with you. Also, please note with me there will be no such micro managing. This is not my philosophy at all. My goal is to help members and chapters by offering support and removing any barriers that do not allow for growth. Again, I know I did not answer specifics but please know I will process your comments. And, most importantly, THANK YOU for your support of CSI!
