President's Message

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



Friday, June 11, 2021

It was a true honor and privilege to be writing to you as we wind down the 2020-2021 CSI year and move into summer. I would first like to thank the board and committee chairs for their outstanding leadership during a season that has been more than challenging. Navigating the cancellation of an Annual Meeting and many other events including the monthly meetings, along with planning and executing the first ever CSI Virtual Annual Meeting, is an unforgettable experience. I believe I can speak on behalf of all CSI when I say that the leadership was put to the test this last year, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without that leadership. Thank you, all for your dedication to the Society, and for leading and keeping our Chapter, our Membership and the CSI mission relevant as we adjusted to our “new normal”.
 
Aside from the complications that COVID-19 inflicted on our operations, we continued to share science through the monthly CSI webinars without interruption. We continued to plan and offer virtual participation for our 2020 CDT training and many other events. We have adapted and navigated these trying times, and we will continue to do so for many years to come.
 
As we move into summer, I wish everyone the best and look forward to next year when we can start meeting in person!

Thank you,
