Call for Volunteers - CMAA National Conference on Capital Projects Symposium

The CMAA Gulf Coast Chapter is happy to announce that it will be hosting the CMAA National Conference on Capital Projects Symposium on April 2-4, 2017. The Symposium, to be held at The Ritz-Carlton, is a high-level conference exploring how professional construction and program management enhances quality of life by fostering improvements in our built environment and better use of resources. The event will feature education session, plenaries and keynotes, local project tours, and networking opportunities galore! The CMAA Gulf Coast Chapter hosted this event in 2013 with great success. Details on this year’s Capital Projects Symposium, held in Austin, Texas, can be found at

As host chapter to this outstanding event, we will help to organize the local project tours, identify volunteers to facilitate technical sessions, man the host chapter/concierge table and assist in identifying local presenters and topics. The Chapter will also be hosting its annual golf tournament during this time as an added bonus activity for the Symposium.

We are very excited about this event, especially since the 2013 event was such a success (and a lot of fun). We want our members, non-members, and owners to get involved with the planning now so that we have another excellent experience! As project managers and construction managers, we excel at planning, organizing and scheduling activities for projects and this is no different. To that end, we are looking for volunteers for the following roles in support of this national event:

- Host Chapter Committee Chair—this individual will head up the local committee, will work with Chapter and National Board members and representatives to support the Symposium.

- Golf Tournament Chair—this individual will lead the efforts for the golf tournament to be held in conjunction with the Symposium.

- Host Chapter Committee Members and Volunteers—will support the Chair in the Chapter’s support activities.

- Golf Tournament Committee Members and Volunteers—will support the Chair in the planning and execution of the golf tournament.

More details and information on each of these areas is available from Lisa Cookmeyer ([email protected]).

Please contact Chapter President Jonathan Charbonnet ([email protected]) to volunteer in any of these categories. The Committee Chairs will also have the opportunity to meet with the CMAA National Executive Committee when they meet at The Ritz-Carlton in mid-July.
