The deadline to apply is Jan. 30.

Founded in 1948, CSI is a national not-for-profit association of more than 6,000 members dedicated to improving the communication of construction information throughout continuous development and transformation of standards and formats, education and certification of professionals to improve project delivery processes. CSI members work tirelessly to effectively communicate the designers’ vision, the material producers’ solutions and the constructors’ techniques to create outstanding facilities that meet facility owners’ objectives.

Through regular meetings and industry interface, as well as interfacing with the CSI Standards Steering Committee and CSI staff, the MasterFormat Task Team will review proposed changes from the community, solicit input from industry stakeholders and work to finalize a proposal to the CSI Standards Steering Committee for finalization.

This position is open to CSI members and nonmembers, and applicants should be an influencer in the AECO industry.

Task Team members serve a two-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2024. Two virtual meetings are held monthly, with ad hoc meetings as needed. The approximate time commitment for the volunteer will be 10-15 hours monthly, inclusive of task team meetings and review of proposals.
