Structural Engineers Association of New York
NEW WEBSITE LAUNCHED TO INTEREST KIDS IN ENGINEERING CAREERS
Contact Rose E. Reichman
Englewood Cliffs, NJ, May 3, 2018—Those Amazing Professions Inc. (TAP) announces the launch of www.thoseamazingengineers.com, a website to inform young people about careers in engineering through real life examples of what engineers do and where they work. The site, particularly appropriate for middle school students who are at an age when they begin to think about careers, can be used with students in upper elementary and high school as well. The publicly available site was developed with a lead grant from The Thornton Tomasetti Foundation and with matching funds from The National Academy of Construction, the New York Building Foundation, and the Structural Engineers Association of New York.
The site will help students understand how their classroom science, technology, engineering and math programs (STEM) are relevant to actual career options that can help change the world. Information and video links illustrate the variety of engineering disciplines and professional opportunities, examples of places to work, and ideas on how to get started, as well as some of the latest and most innovative work being done by engineers today. For teachers, the site includes resources and suggested classroom activities to engage students and challenge their imagination.
The basis for the site is the highly touted book, Those Amazing Engineers, produced by Trilogy Publications LLC, with over 90,000 copies sold nationwide. Trilogy has donated the books and the copyright of Those Amazing Engineers to TAP. Rose Reichman, Executive Director of TAP, states “The digital version of Those Amazing Engineers builds on the success of the book and makes the content free to users and universally accessible. It also allows TAP to easily update and adapt the material in response to teacher and student feedback.”
Those Amazing Professions Inc. (TAP) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 whose mission is to educate young people about careers in underserved professions. The engineering website is its first initiative. For more information on the website and TAP, contact Rose Reichman, email@example.com or 201-816-1211/201-816-8904.

CFSEI TO HOST WEBINAR ON THE STRUCTURAL ASPECT OF INTERIOR NONSTRUCTURAL COLD-FORMED STEEL FRAMING ON OCTOBER 26, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C., October 3, 2017—The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on “The Structural Aspect of Interior Nonstructural Cold-Formed Steel Framing” on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The webinar is designed for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors. Participants are eligible for 1.5 PDHs.
The webinar will review various interior nonstructural cold-formed steel framing for code-specified and engineered applications. Often, interior applications beyond ASTM installation standards are not thoroughly addressed in project contract documents. This webinar will assist building design professionals by highlighting code and industry standard limitations and illustrating which ones do not require analysis and which ones require additional engineering to determine proper member sizes and installation. The webinar will cover several topics, including:
The webinar will be conducted by Randy Kuss, Project Manager at ClarkDietrich Engineering Services, LLC. Randy has more than 25 years of experience in both structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing, ranging from basic interior partition installation requirements to complex architectural feature framing. His current responsibilities include engineering pricing, sales, design management, engineering design, detailing and field installation technical services for all aspects of structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing.
More information on the webinar and registration details are available at http://www.cfsei.org/.
The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers and other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel. CFSEI members work together to develop and evolve industry standards and design methods, produce and issue technical bulletins, and provide seminars and online training to improve the knowledge and skills base of engineers and design professionals.

The NCSEA SEER Committee has activated their database of 2nd responders for Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. Currently only members within a 700-mile radius of the affected area are being contacted, but we would like to encourage all interested SEAoNY members to add their information to the NCSEA SEER database. You can register here: https://ncsea-seer.com .
Please note that to participate in post-disaster assessments you will need to complete ICC's DRI or CalOES's SAP training along with FEMA's ICS 100b, 200, 700 and 800 (FEMA classes can be completed on line: https://training.fema.gov/is/). If you are interested in volunteering, but have not completed the required training, we recommend that you still add your information to the NCSEA SEER database, in the case that others are needed for either this disaster or a future one.
We will keep you all posted as we receive additional information. If you are looking for other (less structural) ways to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, please visit the Red Cross website.
Please join us on September 12th for the 4th Annual Port Authority of New York and New Jersey conference where attendees will learn about new and existing construction project opportunities.
