Transitions: Making Employment Moves
With the upheaval thrust upon the construction industry since February 2020 by the Covid 19 pandemic, individual employment situations have changed. For product representatives, they have changed beyond the loss of in-person meetings with design professionals and co-workers. For several Chapter members, it has meant changing employers. Sometimes by choice — sometimes not.
Changing employment situations brings challenges and opportunities. Personal comfort levels affect decision-making on making these changes. Unanticipated promotions can result from the changes. Applying lessons learned from previous employers get applied to the new. Training occurs with unfamiliar products and different business practices.
Join us for a panel discussion as we spend time with several Chapter member product representatives as they discuss the changes they have experienced over the past few years as they have changed employment venues.
Listen for similarities and differences of their experiences, so you can compare to your own.

Use it for the end of your lunch time presentations. It is a series of slides developed by Chapter Leaders to introduce attendees to CSI and the Baltimore Chapter.
Charted in 1959, the Baltimore Chapter CSI is one of over 130 Chapters of the Construction Specifications Institute. The mission of CSI is to advance building information management and education of project teams to improve facility performance.
Founded in 1948, CSI is a national association of more than 9,500 volunteers, including specifiers, architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, product representatives, manufacturers, owners, and others who are experts in building construction and the materials used therein. They are dedicated to improving the communication of construction information through:
A diversified membership base of allied professionals involved in the creation and management of the built environment.
Continuous development and transformation of standards and formats.
Education and certification of professionals to improve project delivery processes.
Creation of practice tools to assist users throughout the facility life-cycle.
