The SEAOG year runs from the beginning of July through the end of June. Since we are almost done with our current fiscal year, I thought I would highlight some of the year’s activities. MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS One of the main items SEAOG offers is our Membership Meetings. These are a great way to socialize with other structural engineers, as well as to hear about current industry topics. The Membership Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at Hudson Grille in Brookhaven. Registration begins at 6:00p.m. and dinner is served at 6:30p.m.; the program begins at 6:45p.m. and is complete by 7:45p.m. The March meeting featured an interesting presentation by Dr. David Scott, Associate Professor at Georgia Tech. Dr. Scott presented the results of the full-scale testing of a retrofitted concrete building subjected to simulated seismic loads. Upcoming Membership Meetings include: Case Study on the College Football Hall of Fame Building - April Risk Management Presentation - May SEMINARS SEAOG also runs half-day and full-day seminars in the spring and fall. This spring, we will be facilitating a hands-on welding seminar where engineers can learn about typical weld design and then try their hand at welding steel. This half-day seminar will be held at the end of April - stay tuned for more information. SAVANNAH CHAPTER Our Savannah chapter has also been active and has held a number of chapter meetings in the Savannah area on geotechnical challenges in the surrounding region, preservation of historic structures, as well as a presentation by Side-Plate. YOUNGER MEMBERS GROUP Our Younger Members group has had social events, as well as technical presentations that are structured for engineers early in their careers. Some of the technical presentations have been on basic wind design, the basics of geotechnical reports, special inspections and a hands-on deck design and fastening presentation.
