    SEAoNY Seminar: 30 Hudson Yards

    This presentation will discuss some of the structural design challenges of 30 Hudson Yards, the tallest building of the development.  Constructing a significant high rise building on a site with active rail tracks below led to unique solutions including massive built-up steel shapes, transfer systems, and the use of forged steel blocks to facilitate connections.

    12th Annual SEAoNY Education Foundation Golf Outing

    Support a great cause while improving your handicap, getting some sun, and mingling with colleagues! Join us Monday, June 12th for a day on the links in support of the SEAoNY Education Foundation.

    Proceeds from the golf outing provide scholarships for students who are chosen by that year’s Honorary SEAoNY Member. This past year, scholarships were awarded to Jonathan Rodriguez and Christopher Sholy, who are both students at Rutgers University.

    In addition, each year the Education Foundation provides a scholarship to a high school senior from the Urban Assembly School for Design and Construction to support them as they go on to represent our industry and become leaders in promoting our profession. Last year’s scholarship winner was Nicole Henriquez who is now attending the University of Buffalo.

    Save the Date - The SE3 Project: Engagement and Gender Equity in the Structural Engineering Profession

    This lecture is presented by Rose McClure, PE, SE, Co-Founder of SE3 Project

    In early 2016, the SEAONC SE3 committee administered a nationwide survey of employee engagement and gender equity in the structural engineering profession, for which they received over 2,100 responses. The survey investigated a variety of measures of engagement (satisfaction) and equity including, but not limited to, career advancement, compensation, and work-life balance. This presentation will share the most significant findings of the 2016 study, including why 56% of respondents have considered leaving the profession, the prevalence of the gender pay gap, and the importance of workplace flexibility.

    The Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity (SE3) Committee is a committee of the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC), whose mission is to study engagement and equity in the structural engineering profession. For more information, visit www.se3project.org.

    Rose McClure, PE, SE is the co-founder and past co-chair of the SE3 Project. She is a senior engineer at Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, where she specializes in the analysis and design of foundation systems, and the repair and rehabilitation of existing structures. Rose earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering from Cornell University and her Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering from MIT. Rose is an active member of the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC) where she currently serves as chair of the Continuing Education Committee (CEC), past chair of the SE3 Committee, and as member of the Existing Buildings Committee (EBC).

    Registration opens at 5:45 pm. Seminar begins promptly at 6:15 pm

    For SEAoNY members, registration is $25 in advance or $35 at the door.
    For non-members, registration is $40 in advance or $50 at the door.
    For student members, registration is $5.
