Alternatives to In-Person Continuing Education

    We typically don't hear about educational resources available to us unless they happen in our local sections or branches or are hosted by ASCE/SEI national. States are no longer giving covid-related waivers for PE licensing continuing education requirements, and there is still some limited ability to attend continuing education events in person. I think that the virtual continuing education platform, while not new, and definitely greatly expanded during covid, will be here to stay and will allow smaller local events to be open to a much larger group of people.  I personally think that in the future, now that I am comfortable with the idea of virtual learning, I will be acquiring most of my continuing education requirements virtually for convenience.  Of course it is nice once in a while to attend an in-person even to network with fellow engineers, and I will continue to do so when it fits into my busy schedule.  What do you all think?  I am thinking that we could we could share announcements of smaller local virtual events here in this thread.  I'll start with a structural engineering series that is open to all and co-hosted by the Lehigh Valley Chapter of SEI: http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=gzdb7zgab&oeidk=a07eib35n4lbab974d5

    Please chime in with additional similar continuing educational opportunities/resources to share with fellow structural engineers.
