Greetings to our CSC members and supporters of CSC Vancouver Island Chapter!

2021 was still far from normal, but getting close to normal.  Construction is booming, and little by little in-person meetings are starting up again.
CSC Board Meetings were held via Zoom for 2020 and part of 2021, but in early November 2021 the board was able to meet IN-PERSON in Toronto!

Snippets of information from the board meetings:
Conference 2022 will be held in Niagara Falls.
Our Vancouver Island chapter is willing to help off-set travel costs for members who would like to attend.  Raise your hand, and we'll talk :)

Our new Mission and Vision Statements have been finalized:
Our Mission:  To educate, connect and lead the design and construction community to achieve excellence in project delivery.
Our Vision: To be the trusted resource for the construction community.

Membership dues have been sent electronically, and can be paid online.

Free Social Event:
We are in the midst of arranging a FREE luncheon/social event, and just need to pin down a date.  Our venue is Fireside Grill at 4509 W. Saanich Road, Victoria BC.  Have a look at their menu:

Send an email to vancouverisland@csc-dcc.ca to let us know if you are interested in attending the luncheon, and we can narrow down date selections for December or January. We would really like to see you again, and to meet our new members that have yet to join the fun!

Continuing Education:
We are also working on a schedule to get our Lunch-and-Learns up and running again. We've missed seeing you!!!

The name of one of Fireside's salads is the "Green ______ Bowl".
