Exciting news about Pro-Fair!

By Vivian Volz, CSI, AIA, LEED AP, SCIP posted 01-12-2019 05:27 PM

I'm so excited about this year's Pro-Fair speakers! 

We're thrilled to welcome Allison Brooks, Executive Director of Bay Area Regional Collaborative (BARC), and Marcel Wilson, Founding Principal and Design Director for Bionic Landscapes. They'll speak about their experiences with The Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge. Allison is the co-founder of the Challenge, and Marcel is the team leader for the Bionic team and its project, Elevate San Rafael. Personally, as a resident of San Rafael, I'm excited to hear about the process and the plans. As your chapter president, I'm also excited to share with you the opportunity to hear first-hand how Allison and Marcel are making a difference in the resilience of Bay Area communities.

As you know, Pro-Fair is more than just a dinner. It's an elegant setting, a learning opportunity, a chance to meet and catch up with your colleagues across the industry and the region, and a great party. Not coincidentally, it's also the chapter's biggest fundraiser - so it helps us bring CSI to a wider audience and do a better and better job of teaching CSI principles across the design and construction industry. We're ramping up now in a big way - making plans, selling sponsorships and dinner seats, and getting the word out. Bringing you great speakers is a big part of making Pro-Fair the event of the year. 

So save the date - it's Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - and plan to invite someone new to experience San Francisco CSI with you! I really hope you will be as proud as I am to share Pro-Fair with new participants.
