Registration is now open for the 2015 Twin States Conference which will be held at Lake Guntersville State Park in Guntersville, Alabama, April 9th-11th.  For more information go to http://www.twinstatesconference.com.

To register online go to http://www.alabamaasla.com/tsc8reg/

You can also download the registration form 2015 TSC REG FORM.

We hope to see you there.

Please consider joining design professionals, building owners, contractors, and material suppliers from Mississippi and over the south for the Mississippi Chapter CSI Product Show and Seminar to be held on February 11, 2015 at the Clyde Muse Center in Pearl, Mississippi.

You can see from the attached flyer Seminar_Flier_CSI_Show_2015 that our seminar is about What You Always Wanted to Know About Security but Were Afraid to Ask.  If it (security issues) hasn’t impacted every LA’s design – it will in the future. Our speakers are folks that deal with the holistic picture of security – including the site AND the building!  You can see from their bios that they have worked with many clients on many types of projects world – wide.  We believe this program will provide Owners, Designers, and Contractors a great over view of security requirements.  Hopefully, we will have a better understanding of what questions to ask each other; we’ll understand varying needs for security depending upon building/ facility types; and we will get a better understanding that communicating the security needs in contract documents  has to be coordinated between the Owner, Designer, and Contractor early in the project and continue through project completion.  Almost every design discipline and specialty contractor will “touch” the total security package before the project is completed.  MSCSI is an approved AIA provider of continuing education and 6 hours of HSW credit will be provided to attendees.

Also, Landscape Architects should be reminded that the CSI Product Show is the largest commercial products show in the state of Mississippi.  From here you can visit with real people – not just electronic screens – and learn firsthand about new products and correct applications for their products! Plus, if you attend the Seminar or just visit the Product Show, lunch is free.

Please see the attached flyer and register today!  Seating for the seminar is limited and there is a fee.  There is no admission fee for the Product Show.  Go to mississippi.csinet.org to register (and pay for the seminar) online.
