    The Phoenix ACE Mentor Program is looking for Structural Engineers to volunteer as Mentors for High School Students participating in the 2014 ACE Mentor Program at Metro Tech High School. The ACE Program is designed to introduce high school students to the wide range of career opportunities open to young people in architecture, construction, engineering, and related areas of the building design and construction industry. Students in the ACE program work closely with their mentors on hypothetical projects that provide hands-on experience in solving the types of design, engineering, and construction challenges industry professionals confront every day. 

    Follow link for tentative 2014 schedule. Meetings typically occur on every Thursday from Jan 9th to May 8th at 4pm at Metro Tech High School. The program is specifically looking for 2 engineers that would be able to participate on a weekly or almost weekly basis. Please contact me if you are able to volunteer or have any questions about the program.

    SEAoA Members,

    Every two years the Western Council of Structural Engineers Association (WCSEA), which we are all members of, has a WCSEA Round-Up.  These Round-Up’s provide a great way to get continuing education, great networking with engineers who practice in the Western US and have some leisure time in some very interesting places in the West.  In fact SEAoA has hosted the Round-Up numerous times in the past.

    This year the Round-Up is being hoisted by SEAH at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, Kohala Coast, Hawaii, October 2- 5, 2013  which is on the dryer side of the Big Island.  Attached you find the Registration form and the Tentative Program.  You will notice that the programs are only in the morning since I guess it is difficult keep focused when the waves are crashing a 100 yards away.  In addition since SEAoA is a member organization of WCSEA you get to go per the Member Price for this event as with any other event the other member organizations hold.  As your WCSEA Delegate I encourage you to attend this event and support other member organizations.  If you have any questions about this event please do not hesitate to contact me.


    Ron Schneider, P.E., S.E.
    WCSEA Delegate

The reorganization of the wind provisions will be discussed and the changes to the wind maps and the corresponding changes to the load factors will be explained. In addition, the new simplified version of the general analytical procedure under Method 2, which is applicable to buildings of all heights, will be addressed...[Read More]
