PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Fiscal Year 2012 Officers and Chairs By: Angie France, CSI, CDT
I would like to introduce myself - Angela France, CSI, CDT - as incoming CSI Phoenix Chapter president for the term July 2012-June 2013. Every year in March, the CSI Chapter President is preparing for elections which take place in April and the year Jay Norton, CSI Professional Retired member and Past President called and asked me to consider volunteering as Chapter President was no different. After some consideration, I accepted and my name was placed on the ballot. There are many organizations available for members today and many opportunities to volunteer, which can sometimes become overwhelming! CSI has provided so many benefits for me through education, certification and networking, I couldn’t think of another organization I would rather volunteer my time with. I hope you find my future President’s messages to be inspiring and hope they ignite a spark in you! We need spark and energy to continue to grow and retain our members at CSI Phoenix. Take this time to reflect on why you are a member of CSI and how together as a TEAM we can make the CSI Phoenix chapter a continuing benefit for members with our outstanding programs, education, and networking opportunities. One of my goals this year is to make sure we retain our current membership and gain new members through such events. As a reminder, there won’t be chapter meetings for the month of July or August as we break for the summer. We will resume our normal schedule beginning in September with our first meeting at Lucky Strike Lanes on September 13th. This will be the same week as CONSTRUCT 2012. You can find more information regarding the event at www.CSIphoenix.org and www.csinet.org. Take a minute and check out the new CSI Phoenix Facebook page! Thank you to Ed Galindo and Jenna Orr at CDM Smith for getting that started! Looking forward to seeing you all in September!

EDUCATION PROGRAM UPDATE On June 1, 2012, the Phoenix Chapter of CSI hosted its annual Spec Rep Academy. This is a day dedicated to the product representatives in Phoenix to help educate them on current construction topics. The day was kicked off by Adam Heiser with BSD out of Atlanta discussing proprietary specifications. This was a program designed for the National Product Rep Academy and our chapter was lucky enough to have Adam come out to present again. Next on the agenda was Rebekah Morris, publisher of Arizona Builder’s Exchange, helping us fill our project pipeline. Rebekah has knowledge in finding, tracking, and pursuing projects. Her seminar was filled with helpful tips for reps to find project leads! Paul Simonsen with TRC was our third speaker and discussed Division 01 and why it is nicknamed the “Keystone Sections.” Paul’s presentation really left the group wanting more. And luckily, he and Ron Geren are presenting the Construction Document Technology Seminar on August 23, 24, 25. Finishing out the day with the topic “How to Think Like an Architect” was Mark Roddy and Mark Kranz with SmithGroupJJR. The colorful presentation was a lot of fun and insight into the interview process, design conception, and how the building are put together…working and relying on all the different professionals in their specialized field. “I really enjoyed the Spec Rep Academy; it changed my perspective of this complicated process of product specifications and the interaction among all the players. My favorite topic was Adam Heiser’s ‘Proprietary Specifications: The Mistakes Manufacturers Make’ it helped me to get a better understanding of how providing precise and objective information is essential to in the relationship between the product rep and the architects and specifiers.” Jorge Hernandez with ATAS International Attendee of Spec Rep Academy

FUTURE CITY COMPETITION AND AWARDS Our CSI Phoenix Chapter has been sponsoring an "Excellence in the Use of Building Materials" Award for 15 years in the Arizona Region, Future City Competition . For those of you who are not familiar with the program, Future City is a National Competition open to students in grades 6 to 8. The competition is open to all public, private, parochial and home schools and is sponsored by the engineering community to promote math, science, and engineering. There are over 30 Regions that participate and our Arizona Region winner each year participates in Washington D.C. at the National Finals during National Engineers Week in February. This past year over 5,000 students competed in the Arizona Region competition; over 9,000 people visited the Phoenix Public Library to view the scale models in the competition; 150 companies provided support with dollar donations and employee volunteer time; nearly 400 teachers volunteered their time; 350 Engineer Mentors from over 45 disciplines spent time working with the student teams at the various schools; and at least 1,000 volunteers organized the event, judged team deliverables, or worked at the Regional Finals. Since Arizona began as a Region in 1997 CSI has sponsored one of the awards sponsored by a variety of societies, including ASHRAE, IEEE, the AIA and Valley Forward. Each society develops their own criteria that best suits their organization. There are also awards given for The Best Computer Model, Best Team Presentation, Best Essay, etc. This year's #1 Team that went to the National Competition was from Veritas Home Schoolers and the came away from Washington D.C. with awards from ASHRAE for the Best Indoor Environment and from the Society of Fire Protection Engineers for the Best Fire Protection Engineering. Our CSI winner was a team named "Sae Dosi" from Mohave Middle School in Scotts dale. The team members were Andy Cole, Samuel Leonard and James White. Their teacher was Mary McBride and the Engineer Mentor was Doreen Song. Our CSI judges that selected the winner were Pamela Bir, Luke Bowen, Ed Galindo and Mike Jackson. Our President, Steve Smith presented the Award at the Competition Finals in Phoenix. These judges should be congratulated for their dedication and all the hard work they did to select the winner. There were also special Awards given to certain judges who had given more support and participation over the first 15 years of the competition. Pamela Bir was a winner from CSI, congratulations Pamela! This year, due to scheduling problems, the team was unable to give their presentation at one of our CSI meetings which is too bad. This coming Fall we will once again be soliciting for judges in the 2012-2013 competition. Future City also is constantly looking for new schools that want to participate and people who can be "Engineer" Mentors for the various participating teams. You don't actually have to be an Engineer, they just need people who have a knowledge of the design/building process who can assist the team and teacher in developing the team's project. For more information go to www.futurecityarizona.org or contact Jay Norton at firstname.lastname@example.org.

TECHNICAL ARTICLE Continuity of R-Value Across Expansion Joints Written by Lester Hensley, Emseal President Edited with permission by TJ Valdez, The Twenty-One Tech Company, Inc.
As many of you know, our chapter’s technical committee has been focusing their efforts on researching and reporting on proper building envelope techniques for our particular climate. One of the areas that is regularly neglected is the exterior vertical expansion joint, specifically its watertightness and R-Value. This article, adapted from one found on www.emseal.com specifically addresses this area. In an effort to emphasize the educational content, any proprietary product names have been substituted with generic industry terms. Again, please visit www.emseal.com if you would like to see the original article. The detail below shows the structural backup wall, which is sometimes block, sometimes steel-stud and exterior gypsum. The structural wall is wrapped or coated with an air barrier membrane and extruded, polystyrene insulation board is detailed over the air barrier. The cavity-wall gap comes next and then the exterior façade material—often brick, but also precast concrete, metal panels, etc. Click on the link to read the full article.

EDUCATION ARTICLE Prettiest Painted Places in America
Article submitted by Debbie Zimmer, Paint Quality Institute Submitted by Tim Garver, CSI, CDT, LEED AP, Dunn Edwards
There are many cities, towns and neighborhoods across the U.S. that inspire residents and visitors alike with their beauty and charm. But which are the crème de la crème? We'll soon have a better idea. The Paint Quality Institute (PQI) is conducting an ambitious nationwide search to find the "Prettiest Painted Places in America." The results will be made known this fall when PQI reveals the 12 contest winners. Is your hometown one of the "Prettiest Painted Places?" If so, entry instructions are below!
To elicit entries in the competition, PQI is contacting chambers of commerce, tourism departments, and historical districts in all 50 states. Since many smaller "places" may not be represented by such organizations, PQI is also widely publicizing its search. Anyone can enter a community in the free competition by simply taking some pictures, uploading them on the PQI website at http://blog.paintquality.com/ppp, and providing a brief description of the community being nominated. Entries will be accepted until August 31. A panel of judges from major media outlets will then evaluate the entries and select 60 finalists in the competition, 10 from each of six geographic regions. After further research, including unannounced site visits, the judges will name the 12 Prettiest Painted Places in America in October. What's in it for the towns and communities that participate? In addition to bragging rights for the winners, every place that enters will be part of an extensive national publicity campaign conducted by the Paint Quality Institute. For more information on the Prettiest Painted Places in America competition, visit http://blog.paintquality.com/ppp

MESA PARKS BOND SET AT $65M Original Source: Arizona Republic This article was shared by Arizona Builder’s Exchange Mesa voters are likely to be asked in November whether to borrow nearly $65 million to build new parks, enhance old ones and add recreational trails. The City Council has until July 9 to call the bond election, but City Manager Chris Brady would rather not push such a major decision to the last minute. He asked the council to study the matter over the next few weeks and decide no later than July 2. The $65 million would fund a still-evolving set of projects over the next four years. Some are visionary; others would merely freshen up neighborhood parks for which the most commonly applied word is “tired.” The city must replace the federally-funded Riverview Golf Course with parkland of equal value, imposed because the golf course and its next-door park. With the golf course now making way for a Chicago Cubs stadium, Mesa must build the replacement parks soon. The gradual deterioration of many parks during more than half a decade of recurring budget cuts. The final price tag is only about half the $131 million it would have cost to build all the parks-related iMesa.

FROM THE EDITOR What is the Purpose of a Chapter Newsletter? In this day of information overload, every organization, indeed every person, needs to seriously stop and ask themselves “Do I REALLY need to send this email? This letter? This text message?” So let’s look at the chapter newsletter and see if we need it. PROGRAM INFORMATION – Yes, we need to share details about the upcoming programs. But what if there isn’t a program? Does that mean the newsletter isn’t important? Or is it actually more important as it is the only visibility you have in front of the members and the public for a long period of time? Just think - 60 days between meetings if you miss a meeting or if the chapter takes August off. Wouldn’t you like to be in front of the members at least once in that 60 days? EDUCATING YOUR CUSTOMERS – What better platform do you have for reaching a targeted audience with educational material about your products or your segment of the industry? The chapter newsletter and web site are great tools. While articles need to be general - not product oriented – the newsletter gives you a great opportunity! Share articles from trade associations, trade publications or even company training material. PRODUCT/ SERVICE ADS – Go a step further and educate with specific product information in your ads. You can share solutions, suggestions or options in your ads. Go beyond a name and phone number! LOCAL NEWS – Many members work with large national companies who have beautiful web sites. But local news and projects may not make it to the corporate web site. The chapter newsletter and web site give you the opportunity to create a mini web site just for your local news. The Member Profile can be edited each month with project photos, award notices, Arizona-specific product information. CALENDAR OF EVENTS – The newsletter and web site list industry-related events (AIA competitions, other professional organizations’ meetings). You can also list your own corporate events: product demos, training classes, open houses, etc. Yes, we do need a chapter newsletter. And the amazing thing is that the more you “take advantage” of the newsletter and web site to talk about your industry and company, the better the newsletter and web site become.
CODE CORNER Glass and Glazing
By: Ronald L. Geren, AIA, CSI, CCS, CCCA, SCIP
According to the Glass Manual, published by the Glass Association of North America (GANA), glass has been around for more than 4,000 years. Glass allows daylight in and allows building occupants to view the outside world while still maintaining an envelope to separate inside from outside. However, the use of glass in buildings presents issues that must be addressed, such as energy efficiency, fire protection, and life safety. The International Building Code (IBC) covers all three of these areas. Click the link to read the full article.
