8:00 AM – 2:30 PM Let's Get Specific

Nearly every member of the construction project team is asked to read, write, or complete work based on the information included in a project’s specifications. What better way to understand how these pivotal documents work than by writing one yourself?

Over the span of a few hours, you will participate in a series of interactive activities, presentations, and demonstrations designed to work through the process of writing a small three-part spec. Included in your workshop registration is access to the six-part “Specs 101” online course ($50-100 value) and post-workshop documents to support future specification writing.



9:00 AM – 12:00 PM CSI Level Up Leadership Workshop

Sharpen your leadership skills through CSI’s Level Up Leadership Workshop.

In this interactive session you’ll work alongside colleagues to improve skills you can apply as a CSI leader and in your career.

Before you arrive, a series of short online videos will prepare you to dive right into the discussions in Nashville. 

As a result of attending these sessions you will:

  • Learn and generate “what if” discussion and how to engage in constructive conflict.
  • Work through common board leadership scenarios.
  • Be exposed to core board leadership competencies like goal setting, strategic thinking, and common (and often misunderstood) board responsibilities.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hone your leadership skills needed to grow your chapter or region AND bring these valuable tools back to your workplace.
