         Key Industry Issues
•   The rapid pace of technological advance is changing how people work
    together and the impact of digital systems.

•   Fundamental shifts in the manner in which specifications are written and
    updated may lead to decreased demand for dedicated specifications writers.

•   A disconnect between spec information and BIM causes confusion and lack
    of accepted practice in the industry.

•   Declining relevance of CSI Standards and Formats gives rise to new
    opportunities to create future project documentation and delivery models.

•   Too many companies / individuals are trying to be all things to all people –
    blurring of the lines among roles & responsibilities confuses the construction
    process and exposes all parties to unpredictable risks / conflicts of interest

•   Aging of the US population changes distribution/type of construction
      Key Association Issues
•   Absence of shared vision for the future of CSI hampers efforts to be successful

•   Difficulty quantifying the value of CSI’s major contributions to the industry

•   Intermittent approach to chapter training, education and communication leads to
    inconsistent chapter experience and strategic direction.

•   The lack of a coherent brand strategy to reinforce and extend key brand attributes
    causes many to misinterpret CSI’s core identity.

•   Limited awareness of Institute programs and services means that many members’
    perception of CSI’s value proposition does not extend past the chapter level.

•   Lack of awareness and value of some CSI certifications limits market acceptance
    and penetration.

•   Lack of adequate staff support for critical functions and unclear organizational roles
    and responsibilities erodes member interest further involvement and overtaxes
    existing volunteers

•   Poor design and functionality of CSI websites limit interaction and
    satisfaction of members and customers.
