About BSI’s Annual Meetings and Conventions
Building Stone Institute provides numerous opportunities throughout the year for member firms to receive educational opportunities. The two largest events are the Annual Meetings and the Study Tour. The Annual Convention features business meetings, committee meetings, and classroom based presentations. BSI strives to prepare and present education on the most relevant topics concerning our members and the industry. Professional speakers, technical experts, design associates and even our own members provide valuable awareness and resources in a convenient and relaxing environment.
Ask a member and you are likely to hear that networking at BSI events is one of the most important benefits of membership. BSI builds plenty of networking fun into our annual convention, including a light-hearted team challenge that provides character building skills while getting to know each other better.
Recent conventions have taken BSI members to San Antonio, Puerto Rico, San Diego, Las Vegas, Austin, and Charleston. See photos of some of these events as well as video highlights from Austin and Charleston’s educational presentations.

Thank you to our 2013 Annual Meeting sponsors!!!
The BSI experienced a strong turnout for our 2013 Annual Meeting event held in conjunction with StonExpo in Las Vegas. We tried something a little different and it proved successful – providing a wonderful opportunity for networking, building new relationships and rekindling long time friendships. The Happy Hour with the MIA was a highlight. Not only did it allow BSI members to mingle together and with the MIA members, but it offered the perfect backdrop for a greater network of our industry to recognize and celebrate the accomplished career of one of its leaders – Garis Distelhorst, who has recently retired after 11 years at the MIA helm. Thank you Gary for your contributions to the natural stone industry.
