Breakfast was provided by Tyvek and delivered by their wonderful rep Suzan Jordan. YUM! Attending her first planning meeting was newest board member Marni Redmond with Exact Tile. Kathy Proctor facilitiated the discussions as members identified those things that the chapter does well and what things we want to improve in the future.
We discussed some opportunities for collaboration with AIA and other organizations. Will Dunklin shared the variety of upcoming programs that will take the member meeting off site to lunch and learn. We will be reviewing the Operating Guide and Bylaws to ensure that they are usable documents. Donna Covert shared that CSI Flash Mobs will be popping up around town after working hours. Whitney Kaul presented teh 2018-19 budget that was edited and adopted.
The group refined the mission of the Knoxville Chapter to provide a community to communicate, collaborate, network and educate for the advancement of the design and construction industry.
