Abstract

My year as CII Chair was a growth experience for me—both professionally and personally. Throughout the year I met many bright, capable people and was exposed to great new ideas. While I have long known the value of CII membership, this deeper involvement put me in a better position to lead change in my own organization. As Director of Planning and Project Management for the Architect of the Capitol, I see that my organization benefits from CII’s knowledge leadership for the industry. As members we can foster new ideas and technologies in the workplace, increase productivity, improve workplace safety, and continue to explore new practices and techniques. CII maintains its leading position because of the members’ commitment to improving what we do and how we do it.

At the beginning of my tenure, I set the following goals and objectives: ensure that CII’s research will continue to drive safety incidents and accidents down to zero; communicate the value of CII membership to prospective and current members; continue to promote performance metrics; and develop a program to mentor the next generation of industry professionals.

Looking back, I could not be more excited about our progress. The current CII member TRIR rate is the lowest it has been (0.37), and our Next Gen leaders are more engaged than ever. We continue to build relationships and alliances with other professionals and institutes. We made progress on our Knowledge Base Project, an effort to make CII resources more accessible. We launched the 10-10 Performance Assessment Program, the next generation of benchmarking. These great tools will provide more efficient ways of looking at and evaluating projects throughout their duration.

As a steward of the historic Capitol campus in Washington, D.C., I certainly appreciate CII’s role as a resource for building a steady and lasting foundation for its members. It has been a joy to lead this great organization in 2014, and I appreciate your commitment to CII’s future growth. We should not fear change. We should embrace it. I am really looking forward to what lies ahead in the new year and beyond.

Anna Franz,
CII Chair
