The Purpose


To educate individuals, collectively and individually, with the latest in construction technology for the advancement of the construction industry.


The Chapter



The Memphis Chapter of CSI is comprised of some 140 members from the local construction community.  These members make up the four team players of construction—Owner, Designer, Constructor, and Product Representative.  The leadership consists of a President, Executive Committee, and a Board of Directors.
The Memphis Chapter of CSI meets on the second Thursday of each month except, April, July, and December and provides education through technical lectures, seminars, plant tours, site visits, and a products show each year.
The products show, CSI BUILD/IT, will be open at the Columns at One Commerce Square in April 2017. It replaces the monthly Chapter meeting.
