CSI Grand Rapids is a member-based organization, we always need member volunteers. Volunteering provides tremendous benefits including personal growth, professional development, building industry contacts, and developing relationships with members along the way. Based on your availability and interest we have a volunteering opportunity for you.


CSI Grand Rapids’ strongest asset is its membership and our members’ willingness to share skills, knowledge, and expertise. Putting that talent into action by volunteering for a committee can be your first step to an active role in CSI Grand Rapids.

Listed below are the committees for which you can volunteer:

Programming- Chapter Meetings & Building Enclosure
Social – Holiday Party, Awards & Recognition Night, Bowling Night (Biennial)
Golf Outing
Student Outreach & Young Professional
