Meet us in St. Louis for the 2013 Steel Conference! NASCC is the premier educational event for those involved in the design and construction of fabricated steel buildings and bridges and will take place April 17-19 at America’s Center Convention Complex. Presented by AISC, the three-day event will offer more than 100 sessions by top industry leaders, 200 exhibitors and ample networking opportunities. (And you can earn up to 24 PDHs!)
Visit www.aisc.org/nascc to register or view an advance program. Plus, register between now and December 10 and you’ll receive our lowest rate of the season ($290 for members and $435 for non-members). The price goes up $10 each Monday between now and the conference, so don’t delay.
For more information on what’s in store for this year’s Steel Conference, see AISC’s press release, here.
If you’re a structural engineer, you also won’t want to miss out on AISC’s Night School program, an evening curriculum of online courses on relevant structural steel design and construction topics. This new integrated series of courses provides an effective and economical means to learn the essentials of designing and building with structural steel — on your schedule.
Classes begin January 14, 2013, and the first course consists of eight weekly 1.5-hour webinar sessions focused on “Fundamentals of Connection Design,” which will be presented by Thomas M. Murray, P.E., Ph.D., emeritus professor at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Va.
You can register for the course in two ways: register for the entire eight-session package and view the webinars live or recorded, one attendee per connection, earning up to 12 PDHs (1.5 PDHs per session attended) and 1 “EEU” certificate upon passing a series of eight quizzes and a final exam; or, you can sign up for individual webinars to view live only, with an unlimited number of attendees per connection and earn 1.5 PDHs per webinar.
For more information and to register for the first course, visit www.aisc.org/nightschool. Registration for courses two and three in the curriculum will be offered in the spring and fall of 2013.
