Have a look at the 20th edition of the Communiqué!

 

GENERAL UPDATES:

 

Dear CSIA Member,

Our Northern Hemisphere Winter Operations have concluded for the season! In Program Operations it was a record for participation with 12 thousand Members taking a Certification Program this past season.

 

Prog participation

 

As Program operations have concluded, the next 6 weeks will be busy for both your elected Volunteers and Staff members as we plan for next season and beyond.

This past Sunday, May 15, we had a planning session with the National Board Members, Regional Board Chairs, Committee Chairs, and Staff Directors. That session was a key initial step in our annual operations plan and budget, as we press on towards our 2022-2023 season and beyond. We will share the outcome documents from that session shortly.
