PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Valley chapter into the future. Reach out to the newer generation of designers, architects, engineers, product reps, and contractors that you interface with daily and invite them to lunch or to a chapter meeting. Introduce them to the importance of face-to-face networking and developing trusted advisors. You will benefit from the enlightened interaction and they will benefit from your wisdom and experience. Jon Lattin As we close in on the end of 2019, what are you thankful for? As the current president of your chapter, I have a lot to be thankful for, both personally and professionally. A healthy and loving family and a strong industry have provided stability and joy in my life. My association with CSI has blessed me in other ways. • I am grateful for family gatherings with my extended CSI family. From our first annual kickball game and pumpkin carving parties with the AIA to MARC 2019 and Construct with our region and institute friends. • I am thankful for volunteers. Day in and day out, volunteers are the lifeblood of any organization and the Greater Lehigh Valley is blessed with some of the best around. Through steadfast dedication and a personal commitment to the chapter, these volunteers plan event logistics, develop and manage education, maintain communications, interface with the region and institute, and quietly ensure the chapter continues to flourish and grow. However, volunteers get tired and need help. It takes a village to raise a family and it takes a village to maintain a healthy chapter. Now is the time to act, if you can devote an hour or twenty, we have tasks for you! I am proud to say the fellowship gained in CSI extends beyond the monthly meetings and has flourished into long lasting friendships. • I am thankful for youthfulness. An influx of younger people into CSI provides diverse views and energy that help propel the Greater Lehigh • I am appreciative of the education that I have acquired in CSI. CSI is working hard to elevate the value of the CDT and advanced certifications to make them as valuable and recognizable as the AIA or PE designation. Unlike all of the other organizations, CSI pulls members from the entire AEC community 4

into one room and this broad membership continues to provide invaluable opportunities for education and professional growth that can’t be found elsewhere. • I am thankful for the charity that our chapter provides. Through Canstruction, our local industry continues to donate tens of thousands of pounds of food yearly to those in need. Through our educational outreach, we are introducing our youth to the industry at large through programs like Let’s Build and participation in our yearly product Expo. Financially, we support college students with educational scholarships. My cup runneth over with thanks for all that we as an organization were able to achieve this past year. I am a member of a national car club and they often say “It’s not about the cars, it’s about the people.” I believe that sentiment applies to CSI as well. Although many of us joined CSI purely for professional reasons, I honestly believe it’s the people that keep us active and make us want to stay. As you enjoy your holidays with family and friends, take a minute to reflect on your past year and make plans to get involved in 2020. I promise you that the benefit to both you and the chapter will have you counting your blessings too. Respectfully, Jon Lattin 5
