CSI Mt. Rainier Chapter
September 2020 - President's Message
Welcome to the new normal. Join us, Mount Rainier Chapter CSI, from the comfort of your home or office for our monthly meetings via Zoom. And although we are not meeting in person to discuss local construction industry happenings, we will continue to bring you current and relevant topics along with AIA and CSI Continuing Education credits. Already lined up are: an in-depth look at the new 2018 IBC Code; a presentation on and virtual tour of the Craft Brewery & Distillery District; and Miller Hull’s presentation on “Designing U.S. Embassies”. Our ‘Tacoma’ meetings occur on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm while our ‘Olympia’ meetings will typically be held on a Friday at 12 noon. So, grab your favorite libation and Zoom on over!
