Slattery, FCSI, CDT, CCPR, LEED AP BD+C, sales support manager at ATAS International, has been awarded CSI Fellowship in the 2020 Class of Fellows, as one of five members elevated this year. She was nominated through a rigorous application process, then elected by the Jury of Fellows for membership. Fellowship is one of the top two honors given by the Institute. Slattery has been an active CSI member at the local chapter, region, and Institute levels over the past 18 years, and is well deserving of this award.

Slattery said, “I am very humbled to be included in this year’s Class of Fellows. Being a member of CSI has provided so much to me. In addition to gaining knowledge and guidance though a vast network of industry colleagues, it also provided me with leadership opportunities. I learned how to be a better team member when working as a group to achieve a goal, and I also learned to pass along my knowledge and guidance to others to advance their own careers in our industry.”
