SEAOG News

National surveys of Structural Engineers have repeatedly found that respondents with identified mentors reported being more satisfied with career trajectory and career choice. SEAOG's SE3 committee (a local effort of the larger NCSEA SE3 Committee) is launching our first mentor matching program. Based on interest, participants may be assigned to small groups of 3-4 for mutual mentorship, or paired in a traditional mentor-mentee partnership.

Upcoming Events

Best Practices for Delegating Cold-formed Steel Design (LIVE) Wednesday, March 10, 12-1:30pm

Join us for a live webinar on the "Best Practices for Delegating CFS Design" presented by Chuck Webb, PE. from Clark Dietrich.

The design responsibilities between the structural engineer of record (SEOR) and the cold-formed specialty engineer are integral to project success – completion on time and within budget. Even though the SEOR is ultimately responsibly for the overall design of the structure, building component design is often delegated to a specialty engineer. This presentation will focus on the relationship between the SEOR and the cold-formed specialty engineer and highlight best practices between the two design professionals.

This course will award 1.0 hours of continuing education. 

Cost is free to members and students.  Cost is $20 for non-members ($15 earlybird rate for registration prior to March 3rd).

After registering for the event, you will receive a separate email from “SEAOG Webinar” the week of the event with a confirmation and instructions for joining the webinar.  Please check your spam folder if you have trouble locating this email.

Committee Updates

SE Licensing 

  • The PELS Board is still processing affidavits.
  • Successful applicants will know they have been approved when their name and SE number have been posted to the online verification tool: 
  • Applicants whose affidavits have been rejected or denied will receive a notice stating such from the PELS Board. 
  • The PELS Board will publish a notice when it has processed all affidavits it has in its possession, along with a process for contacting the PELS Board if an applicant believes their status to be in error, as well as a hard deadline for this process to be completed. 
  • Documents for Designated Structures* should be signed with an SE seal/stamp. Active SE license holders can have SE seals/stamps created per the published guidelines by similar means as their PE seals/stamps.
  • Documents for non-Designated Structures* can be sealed with either a Georgia PE or Georgia SE stamp, unless otherwise required by the Authority Having Jurisdiction. 

 


Programs Chair: Sarah Scarborough [email protected]

  • We have started planning programs for 2021.  Please refer to the website for the most up to date information and registration information for future meetings.

 


Publicity Chair: Angelina Stasulis, [email protected]

    • Thanks to volunteers Francesca Ferrero, Asif Iqbal, and Angelina Stasulis for their work on the SEAOG Virtual Info Session for emerging professionals and students at KSU and Georgia Tech. We have plans for integrating these up-and-coming structural engineers into our YMG events, and putting on a career-focused event (resume review/interview prep) for students later this spring. Let us know if you're interested in helping with these efforts. 

 

  • Looking for a new way to demonstrate structural engineering concepts in your office or students during your SEA's outreach efforts? NCSEA has partnered with Mola Model to offer members and their education partners discounts on these fantastic kits. Click here to login to the NCSEA Member Portal and find the "Discounts" tab to access this benefit.


SE3 Chair: Katy Charvin, [email protected]

SEAOG's Structural Engineering Equity and Engagement (SE3) committee is excited to launch our first Mentorship Program. National surveys of Structural Engineers have repeatedly found that respondents with identified mentors reported being more satisfied with career trajectory and career choice. Our goal is to provide members with support for every level of their career by offering opportunities to connect with other structural engineering professionals. Based on interest, participants may be assigned to small groups of 3-4 for mutual mentorship, or paired in a traditional mentor-mentee partnership.
