SEAOI membership boasts over 700 practicing structural engineers based in, or practicing in, Illinois, and is definitely a market you want to reach. We are pleased to offer a variety of sponsorship opportunities for organizations in the structural engineering field. Contractors, vendors, engineering and architecture firms, and other related organizations can support the work of SEAOI throughout the year and at specific events.
