Deadlines Approaching for September AISC Opportunities
Posted by Tasha Weiss on September 4, 2012 at 3:28 PM.

With the holiday weekend behind us and school back in session, here’s a reminder to sign up for this month’s approaching AISC educational opportunities:


  • AISC will be hosting a live webinar this Thursday, September 6, based on the standard, Prequalified Moment Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications (AISC 358-10). Presented by Michael Engelhardt, Ph.D., the DeWitt C. Greer Centennial Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and the 1999 recipient of AISC’s T.R. Higgins Award (for his paper on Reduced Beam Section Moment Connections), the 1.5-hour webinar will cover an overview of connection prequalification and an introduction to available prequalified connections. For more information and to register, visit


  • Register for AISC’s Fall 2012 Louis F. Geschwindner Seminar Series by this Friday, September 7, and you’ll receive a $50 early registration discount! Visit for more information on the seminar series, registration and pricing.


  • If you’re an AISC full or associate member, remember to enter your steel sculpture by September 15 for this year’s SteelDay Sculpture Competition! You’ll have a chance to be one of five finalists to win a trip to the 2013 NASCC: The Steel Conference, April 17-19 in St. Louis, where your sculpture will be on display and the ultimate winner will be chosen by attendees. The winner will also be featured in MSC and receive a catered lunch. For more information, visit
