SEI Standards Series

SEI Standards Series

The SEI Standards Series debuted in 2021 as a six-part sequence of educational, virtual sessions designed to showcase the six, unique, about-to-be-published SEI Standards that govern several niche markets.  In 2022, the series previewed ASCE 7-22 as a five-part series that reviews the changes from ASCE 7-16.  Now in 2023, the SEI Standards Series will continue with a five-part series focusing on ASCE 7 & the Building Codes, two new SEI Standards, and ASCE 7-22 & the IBC update.  Each program will include a dialogue between the leaders and experts, a detailed technical presentation, and attendees will be encouraged to join the discussion for the extensive live Q&A portion.  

These live sessions are designed for structural engineers at all levels including students, contractors, regulators, owners, and project stakeholders.  All will be interested to learn about these updates, as well as the market impacts, directly from the experts who developed the document.  

Mark your calendars and join us for the whole series or for each session separately.  Each session is LIVE (PDHs included) and there is no post event viewing option available.
