President’s Message

July, 2017

    Thank you for entrusting me with the leadership of our Region for the year 2017-2018. It is indeed an honor and responsibility that I do not take lightly.

   It is with hope and your assistance as individuals, Chapters, and leaders that we  may continue the leadership’s rich heritage that those who have served in the past have set in motion.

   I have recently heard from one of our Chapters that additional training would be helpful in the areas of Treasurer and Finance. If your Chapter has a need for additional training in these or other leadership areas, please let me know, so that we at the Region may assist?

   I have asked our Regional Education Chairperson, Debra Powers-Wafford to set up educational opportunities at our Fall and Spring Conferences to address your Chapter needs. So, please let me know the ways in which we may assist.

   FYI, our Fall Planning and Spring Conferences will be held in Frisco, Texas. Please put October 19 – 21, 2017 on your calendars for this event and April 4 – 7, 2018 for our Spring Conference. Further information will be forth coming soon.

    Also, on September 13-15, 2017 there will be a Construct meeting in Providence, RI.  I hope to see all of our Chapter leaders and interested members there for our Caucas at this event to discuss plans and needs for our Region.    Also, the Oklahoma City Chapter has provided our Region to collaborate in support of a student from Oklahoma State University in her studies abroad. If you are interested in supporting this student, please contact Lynsey Hankins at Collaboration is a great tool.

As opportunities for collaboration and Chapter assistance arise, please let me know, and we at the Region will attempt to assist.

I may be contacted at or 210-872-6743.


    Yours in CSI service,
