Structural Engineering Awards
50 Significant Structures

Structural Engineering Day
Governor Bruce Rauner has proclaimed June 6, 2015 as Structural Engineering Day in Illinois. The date was chosen to commemorate SEAOI's 50th Anniversary as well as the 100th year of Structural Engineering licensing in Illinois. The proclamation recognizes the contribution of structural engineers in safeguarding the lives and property of the public.

Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards
At SEAOI's Annual Awards Dinner on June 6, we recognized fifteen projects with awards for Excellence in Structural Engineering. Read more about the winning projects here.

In addition, three special awards were given: Ron Klemencic was awarded the John F. Parmer Award,  the SEAOI Service Award was given to Larry Dietrick, and Johann Aakre was recognized with the Outstanding Young Engineer Award.

SEAOI Structures Symposium - Call for Abstracts

The Structural Engineers Association of Illinois is pleased to announce the Fifth Annual Structures Symposium which provides a forum for engineers to share analysis, design, and construction information from recent projects with unique and/or distinguishing characteristics.

The 2015 Structures Symposium represents the culmination of SEAOI’s 50th anniversary celebration and also commemorates 100 years of Structural Engineering Licensure in Illinois, the first state to offer such licensure.

The Symposium is comprised of a single day-long session including continental breakfast and a group luncheon. This year’s keynote speaker will be Geoffrey Baer, host of WTTW programming on Chicago’s architecture and history. In addition to Mr. Baer’s keynote, the program will include another dozen half-hour presentations on other building-related topics.

Call for Abstracts
Individuals wishing to present at the Symposium are invited to submit an abstract (MS-WORD format) on any general interest subject related to the analysis, design, construction, or inspection of structural projects. The Symposium registration fee will be waived for the presenting author. For complete submission requirements, read the full Call for Abstracts.

Abstracts are due to the SEAOI office by July 31, 2015..
