President's Message

Hello and thank you for your interest in the CSI Minneapolis-St. Paul Chapter.

Monday, March 23, 2020

In accordance with recommended precautions and practices by the CDC and the WHO to help limit person to person spread of COVID-19 late last week I conducted a conference call with our board of directors and with our chapter chairs to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Chapter of CSI. We reached a consensus to cancel or reschedule all in person events of the Chapter until further notice effective immediately. This decision was made in the best interest of our members and our community. I have asked our chairs to contact our event hosts and inform them as follows;

February 4th through March 24th, 2020
CDT Prep course will continue as schedule via video conferencing only

April 14th , 2020
Annual Membership Orientation to reschedule to Fall 2020 TBA

April 21st, 2020
CSI Face-to-Face product education event to reschedule to Fall 2020 TBA in coordination with the Programs Committee

May 21st, 2020
Chapter Awards Program to be cancelled and continue with nominations.

May 28, 2020
Golf Tournament to reschedule to late Summer/early Fall 2020 TBA

I want to thank our event hosts for the contract accommodations they extended to our chapter under these most unusual circumstances and our board, chairs, and the committee members who have worked quickly and selflessly to act in the best interest of the chapter and those we serve. This will not be without sacrifice; but the mission of CSI will continue beyond this public health crisis.

Respectfully Submitted,

James R. Bergevin || CSI, CCPR, CDT
