The annual Northeast Region CSI Conference is an opportunity for members of the construction industry to get together for networking, education, leadership development and fun. This year’s event is being hosted by the Boston Chapter, one of the region’s largest. As we’ll be in Plymouth during the celebration of its 400th anniversary, the focus of the event is on learning from the past to create better buildings for our future.
The conference will kick off on Thursday with our evening Welcome Reception and networking time in the hospitality suite.
Friday Morning will feature our trade show and technical seminars focused on Longevity / Durability / Resiliency. Lunch and the keynote will be on the Trade Show floor, as will the Cocktail Party and annual Scholarship Auction. Our President’s Banquet will be held Friday evening.
Saturday morning brings the conference’s leadership development activities including an Institute Update and Leadership Workshops. This will be followed by the Awards Luncheon. After lunch there will be a board meeting for CSI leaders. For other attendees there will be professional development sessions and a chance to tour the renovated Mayflower which returns to Plymouth Harbor just a week before.
Arrangements with the hotel have been made and our keynote and education session speakers confirmed. Final details are being worked out. Sponsor registration is open now and attendee registration will open in January.
Mark your calendar now and plan to attend: May 28 to 30, 2020.
