Structural Engineers Association of New York
We look forward to seeing you at this year's NASCC: The Steel Conference.
We'll be in Charlotte, N.C., this year, from April 12 to 14 and registration is now open!
As a previous attendee, you know the Steel Conference delivers extraordinary bang for your buck: practical information you can begin implementing as soon as you get home (and catch up on your sleep--it's an intense few days, right?).
Here are just a few of the things you can expect to learn at this year's conference--while earning up to 17 PDHs!
How designers can cut the carbon footprint of a structural system
How to save time and money on steel bridge fabrication by using a single coat of inorganic zinc primer as a corrosion protection system
What you need to know about welding ASTM A913 steel, whether you're specifying it or doing it yourself
How to analyze unbalanced loads on steel deck
What fabricators wish engineers knew about hollow structural sections (HSS)
How to avoid common mistakes as a new connection designerMust-know fundamentals about torsion design, including a new strength-design approach
How to tackle coordination issues with roof and floor penetrations
How the team behind a largely exposed AESS structural system handled fire engineering--and why it may not need to be fireproofed
How good detailing can make--not break--your project
And much, much more.
The Steel Conference incorporates six specialty conferences: the World Steel Bridge Symposium, QualityCon, Architecture in Steel, SafetyCon, the SSRC Annual Stability Conference, and the NISD Conference on Steel Detailing. See aisc.org/nascc for details about what those conferences have to offer this year!
As always, we'll have an exciting exhibit hall packed with innovations from more than 250 exhibitors.. And this year's conference dinner is at the jaw-dropping NASCAR Hall of Fame, an I.M. Pei-designed whirl of sleek steel and gleaming lights!
Register this week to lock in our best rates. The price will increase every week between now and show time! We offer special rates for multiple registrants from the same firm, recent graduates, educators, and public agency employees. Student members can attend the Steel Conference for free and may be eligible for help with travel costs.
If you have any questions, you can reach us at email@example.com.
We hope to see you in Charlotte!

Would you like to tour New York City's newest supertall tower as it rises?
Join us for an in-person AISC Steel Day event to witness the construction of this 1,388-foot-tall skyscraper. The site visit will be guided by the structural engineers who designed the tower, the contractors who are erecting the structure and a representative from the mill that supplied the steel. After the tour, we will head to a nearby bar for a happy hour sponsored by Nucor's Construction Solutions team. Please contact Steve Rys at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Note: Please be aware that closed-toe footwear and long pants/sleeves are required. PPE will be provided on site if you do not have your own.
Dear SEAoNY members and friends,
We would like to express our deepest sympathy and support for all the people affected by Hurricanes Ian and Fiona. Many people have been displaced, many lives affected and many homes and businesses damaged.
We have been monitoring the post-storm property damage situation to see if there are any requests for support in regard to building evaluations. At least one NYC DOB team has been sent to Puerto Rico. A general call for help has not been received by SEAoNY, nor NCSEA as of yet. This may change at any time.
We advise our members of the following: If you are interested in participating in any voluntary assistance or technical support, please find information on the SEAoNY SEER Committee page. They are in touch with the branches of government and volunteer organizations that will put out the official request for help.
Having our members volunteer for one of these deployments is one of SEAoNY's core values. At the same time, we want to keep our members safe. Showing up as an engineering volunteer in one of these stricken towns can be a logistical challenge for our members as well as a distraction or worse to overtaxed local coordinators. We are monitoring calls for help closely and will keep anyone interested updated as the situation unfolds. Notifications will be provided to those who are registered with the SEER Committee.
Designers, fabricators, and researchers are all at the forefront of steel innovation.
And great things can happen if they work together to solve problems and confirm that creative design solutions actually work. Our free SteelDay webinar takes a look at several projects where design firms engaged with researchers to get confirmation that their innovative idea would be successful. As an added bonus, the design firms worked with students who became future employees!
AISC’s new vice president of engineering and research, Christopher Raebel, has been involved in several of these projects, and he’s thrilled to share his expertise with you during the 2022 free National SteelDay webinar on October 21.
Time: 12:30 p.m. Central
Duration: 1.0 hours
Registration Deadline: 10/21/2022 12:15 p.m. Central
Connection Instructions: After registration, log in to learning.aisc.org to access the webinar and handouts for the course.
