CSI BUILD: January 24

Mark your calendars: BUILD 2012, one of the biggest events on the local construction industry calendar, takes place on Tuesday, January 24 at the Hilton Hotel & Conference Center in Eugene

Hosted and organized each year by the Willamette Valley Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute, BUILD is your opportunity to attend free educational seminars and an always excellent construction products show. The event’s generous sponsors include Turner Construction, CH2M Hill, Dea-Mor, Twin Rivers Plumbing, and FM Sheet Metal.

BUILD’s education seminars are a great way to earn AIA CEUs (one learning unit for each session) and enhance your technical knowledge. Nine different seminars will offer a compelling range of construction-related topics. No pre-registration is necessary—just show up and attend! 

BUILD takes the place of the regular January AIA-Southwestern Oregon chapter meeting. CSI Willamette Valley annually invites AIA-Southwestern Oregon and other design and construction industry organizations to BUILD’s dinner program, which has typically focused on economic forecasts for the coming year. 2012 is no exception, and this year’s program features Dr. Timothy Duy, Director of the Oregon Economic Forum, who will address the question “Are We There Yet?”

Because seating is limited, you do have to RSVP to reserve a spot for the dinner presentation. If you plan to attend, let Tana Baker of Chambers Construction know by reaching her via email at

BUILD is not only a day of rich technical education, but also a vibrant social and networking opportunity for the entire design and construction community. Celebrate the optimism of the New Year and connect with your colleagues: the architects, engineers, contractors, suppliers, bankers, owners, insurers, attorneys, and accountants that BUILD our community. Attend BUILD 2012!
