Dinner Meeting Notice – Central Pennsylvania Chapter – CSI

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

at the Radisson, Camp Hill, PA

Bring a Friend Night
“Quiz the Builders” Panel Discussion

Panelists: Jon O’Brien, Executive Director for Keystone Contractors Association, and representatives from Alexander Construction, JEM Group, Quandel Group, and McClure Company. 

Moderator: Bill Brightbill

For this meeting, we would like to have our Chapter members make a special effort to bring a friend as your guest to share in this fun and educational CSI event.  In addition to enjoying a fine meal and networking time together, our program will feature a panel discussion with several representatives from the contracting side of the construction industry addressing current issues and tackling questions from meeting attendees. Panelists will share their thoughts and observations, shaped by their day-to-day work experience dealing with the business of getting things built.  Potential topics for dialogue include the construction economic outlook, the skilled labor shortage and other issues influencing the assembly of effective construction teams, the growth of off-site construction, how far the green building movement has advanced (or declined), the types and impacts of new technologies, common building failures, and more.  Do you ever wonder what strategies construction contractors employ as they strive to manage and profit from the often messy and complex business of building, while having to deal with a multitude of personalities, professionals, contractual obligations, and regulations, and still deliver a “job well done”?  Come prepared with questions and join us for this opportunity to learn from the builders.

Remember, bring a friend!  And bring some questions for our panelists!

This panel discussion is a continuing education course that has been submitted to AIA CES for 1.0 LU.  CE certificates will be available for all attendees.
