Join Us for an Evening Celebrating Structural Engineering at The Old Post Office!

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, and honor individuals with the John F.
