Interested in Membership

CSI is an individual membership organization. Everyone must join the Institute. You may join one or more local chapters. The Los Angeles chapter has many ways to help you be successful in your career, through education, learning from other members, keeping up with and even influencing trends and enhancing your management skills. The annual dues include Institute and Los Angeles Chapter membership dues. All payments are paid directly to the Institute. NOTE: Typically the LACSI membership dues include nine (9) Chapter Meeting meals in Los Angeles. Based on the cost of a single dinner after attending only 3 Chapter Meeting dinners, the remaining chapter meeting meals are essentially free!  Check out Dinner Meeting for more information.

Welcome New Members

New LACSI members are invited to attend a “Welcome to the Chapter” event occurring a couple of times per year. If you are interested in attending the next welcome event, chapter meeting, need more information, a name badge, or help with anything, please contact Brendan Duffin, Membership Committee Chair.  Drop down the Contacts tab for contact information for the different Standing Committees, Ad-Hoc Committees, and Leads for the Chapter.

Getting the Most Out of Your Membership

Membership in the Los Angeles Chapter of CSI has many benefits. A major one is the opportunity to get to know people who will help you in your job and with your projects. Tap into this great resource by getting involved in the chapter. There are lots of small tasks that can help you stick “your toes in the water”. So if you’ve been a member for a while but would like to expand your network of contacts or a new member looking to get the most value from your membership, please contact any committee chair or Valarie Harris, our Trusted Advisor chair, for ideas and introductions.

Communicating with You

The chapter uses the information you provide to Institute on your Membership form to communicate local activities and opportunities. So please keep your contact information up to date with Institute. You can do it yourself online at If you elect to not receive email or to not be listed in the membership roster, it affects you on the local level as well. Do you want the monthly email announcement from LACSI about the upcoming program? Do you want to hear from LACSI about the education programs or family fun events? Make your choices carefully. Most of all it is each of us as member that makes LACSI a great chapter. We are glad you are a member and look forward to meeting and working with you this year.
