“Working Through the Pandemic Blues”

Panel Discussion

Do have the pandemic blues? Most of us probably do at this point, to one degree or another, so tune into this event on the Zoom video conference platform. We will kick it off and get settled in with 15 to 20 minutes of “attitude adjustment,” followed by a one-hour panel discussion exploring how we’ve adapted over the past three months to our work being upended (or ‘ended’ in some instances) by the COVID-19 pandemic, strategies for getting back to work, whether in the office, on project sites, on the road, or simply finding a new job, and how future work in the AEC industry might be permanently different. We will also discuss how CSI and other association events might happen amidst a return to partial normalcy and fluctuating COVID-19 guidelines.  Our panelists (so far) are:

LeeAnn Slattery (ATAS International & CSI Director for the Middle Atlantic Region)

Jon O’Brien (Executive Director for Keystone Contractors Association)

Charlie Beauduy (President, Gannett Fleming Architects)

We want to hear from all our attendees as well, so bring your questions and comments!

Learning objectives have not yet been composed for this event, but we are confident that it will qualify as a 1-hour continuing education program, registered with AIA CES, and that certificates will be available to attendees requesting them.

TO REGISTER for this FREE program and receive the Zoom URL link, email our host, Ken Robinson at kbrpe@kbraengineering.com no later than 4:50 p.m. on June 9.

Immediately following the program, the CPC CSI Board and committee chairs will meet.  All CPC CSI members are welcome to attend.

Our awards banquet, normally held as our June meeting, is postponed until we can safely meet again in person. Take care and be safe everyone!

Our Program Committee is seeking ideas for diverse, unbiased, educational presentations for the coming year (and beyond). If you would like to be part of our Program Committee, or just have some program ideas to share, please contact Chris Atwood (catwood@gfnet.com) or Jeff Turicik (JeffTurick@ykkap.com)
