Committees, Liaisons, and Task Teams

CSI committees and task teams make an impact throughout the organization. Find details on all of the operating committees, task teams and liaison roles in the CSI National Volunteer Guide.

Operating Committees

Academic Programs Committee
The Academic Programs Committee, or the APC, brings CSI knowledge and principles into classrooms, supporting educators teaching CDT courses. The APC connects CSI chapters with educators in design and construction programs.

Certification Committee
The Certification Committee creates the content, the body of knowledge domains and the item bank for CSI’s four certification exams: Construction Documents Technology (CDT®); Certified Construction Contract Administrator (CCCA); Certified Construction Specifier (CCS) and Certified Construction Product Representative (CCPR).

Knowledge Committee
The CSI Knowledge Committee identifies trends impacting the construction industry. The committee works with CSI staff to develop innovative learning resources, helping all construction project team members excel.

Specifier Editorial Advisory Board
CSI Editorial Advisory Committee members serves as subject matter experts for The Construction Specifier magazine to maintain the professional standards of the publication and ensure it upholds the principles of CSI. Committee members review manuscripts, help develop editorial topics of interest to the industry and judge articles for CSI’s Article of the Year award.


CSI Liaisons are individuals that represent CSI representatives on outside industry committees and taskforces. Liaisons work closely with CSI staff to understand and articulate CSI’s positioning, then represent the interests of CSI, speak on behalf of CSI, and listen and report back to CSI. Liaisons foster or reinforce communications between CSI and outside organizations and ensure concerted action, cooperation and mutual support.
