Building on the inaugural success of SteelDay in 2009, AISC has named the American Galvanizers Association (AGA) its first National SteelDay Partner. SteelDay is a national event that encourages architects, engineers, contractors and specifiers to learn about steel design and construction by visiting fabrication sites, warehouses, galvanizers, and other facilities for educational programs. This year’s SteelDay, scheduled for September 24, is expected to attract more than 10,000 participants at more than 200 events around the country.
“We participated in last year’s SteelDay events and just knew we had to get more involved this year,” said Melissa Lindsley, AGA marketing manager. “SteelDay is the perfect opportunity for the design and construction community to see first-hand what we do today and how we do it.”
In 2009, SteelDay events were held at more than 170 different locations all over the U.S., hosted by AISC and its members. That number is expected to grow this year as AGA members will also host SteelDay events, including galvanizer tours and seminars that showcase today’s innovative applications and state-of-the-art technological developments in hot-dip galvanizing for corrosion control.
