The Indianapolis Chapter of CSI is having its January Chapter Meeting at the Willows on Westfield on Thursday, January 18 from 5:30pm-8:30pm.

Come find out what you know about handling construction documents on a building project and win prizes!

Indianapolis Chapter’s Certification Committee will be hosting a game show allowing two teams of two members each to be asked various questions about Project Documents from a Moderator.  Each team will have one member that has earned at least their Construction Document Technologist (CDT) Certificate.  The other member will be called from the audience.  If the team answers the question correctly, they get to stay for another question.  That team will be rewarded with a prize. If they do not answer correctly, they are replaced with a new team.  Before the end of evening, several different teams will be asked questions about handling and using construction documents.  Chapter trivia will also be presented.
