The SEAOI Awards Banquet is the highlight of our program year, as SEAOI members, colleagues, spouses, and friends gather to celebrate the profession of structural engineering.  

We will announce the winners of the Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards, honor individuals with the John F. Parmer Award, the SEAOI Service Award, and the Outstanding Young Engineer Award.

Salvatore DiBernardo, our outgoing President, will reflect on the achievements of the year behind us, and incoming President Tony Shkurti will look ahead to new goals and opportunities in the coming year.

At the end of the evening, we should be able to catch a glimpse of the fireworks on Navy Pier!
