Who You Gonna Call?
(It's not Ghostbusters)
Seriously, when you have an issue or a question regarding a product need or other question, who do you call? Do you make a call or send an email to somebody you know, or do you take your chances with the email help or chat boxes on manufacturer's websites?
If you call somebody, why do you call them instead of somebody else? If you are a product representative how do you encourage
designers and contractors to call you instead of somebody else? In the CSI world, certain people get the phone calls and emails about
"CSI Stuff" before others get the phone call. Why and how do people become the "go to" source for answers or advice?
You might have heard of the term "trusted advisor." How do people become trusted advisors? There is no formal exam, but many
people will say that there is a test. And the "test" is not easy to pass.
We're having another panel discussion this month. So join us for a discussion about how people become trusted advisors.
Should you have any event questions, please contact our House Chair, Katherine Good at: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
