8:30-3:00 | Pre-Conference Workshops
Leadership Building Blocks for Every Level
Note: This pre-conference session is only available to active Chapter, Region, or Board of Director volunteers.
Whether you are just stepping in or a seasoned volunteer, you will be able to walk away from this pre-conference with the building blocks to form a strong foundation or build on your current knowledge base. You will learn the ins and outs of CSI, purpose, governance, relationships, roles, and so much more during this day-long workshop. To prepare for the session, you'll be asked to complete a series of short online videos (approximately 1.5 hours total).
As a result of attending these sessions you will:
- Learn and generate “what if” discussion and how to engage in constructive conflict.
- Work through common board leadership scenarios.
- Be exposed to core board leadership competencies like goal setting, strategic thinking, and common (and often misunderstood) board responsibilities.
Let's Get Specific
Nearly every member of the construction project team is asked to read, write, or complete work based on the information included in a project’s specifications. What better way to understand how these pivotal documents work than by writing one yourself? Over the span of a few hours, you will participate in a series of interactive activities, presentations, and demonstrations designed to work through the process of writing a small 3-part spec. Included in your workshop registration is access to the 6-part “Specs 101” online course ($125 value).
