Virtual Events

  • With the remarkable shift in the world-wide new normal, SEI has been hard at work to offer you more virtual ways to engage with the profession, connect with your colleagues, and learn new skills. This page will inform you of upcoming virtual events and opportunities and we invite you to join us! For questions please contact [email protected].

  • SEI Standards Series

    This series is a new, 6-part sequence of education, virtual sessions designed to showcase the six, unique, about-to-be-published SEI Standards that govern the niche markets of electrical transmission and substation structures, nuclear facilities, athletic field lighting structures, wind tunnel testing, blast design, and cold-formed stainless steel design. In each 90-minute session SEI host and Senior Manager of Codes and Standards, Jennifer Goupil, P.E., F.SEI, M.ASCE, will examine the big-picture state of the market with the committee chair of the newly published standard and invited experts, as well as discuss reasons for the technical revisions. Additionally, the Standard's chair will present a brief but detailed technical overview of the provisions and demonstrate a relevant design example. Attendees are encouraged to join the discussion for the extensive live Q&A portion of the session. 

    These live sessions are designed for structural engineers at all levels, including students, to understand the big-picture and drivers of change in these unique markets. Contractors, regulators, owners, and project stakeholders will be very interested to learn about these updated and new governing documents, as well as the market impacts, directly from the experts developing the provisions. 

    Mark your calendars and join us for the whole series or for each session separately. Each session is LIVE and only available during the scheduled date and time - you will not want to miss this opportunity.

    Topic: Code Development

    Curious about why structural engineers rely on standards such as ASCE 7? Or how does the International Building Code get updated or adopted? Join experts for a conversation about how the standards development process works. We will discuss the process but also the personal experience of SEI members that are actively working to develop and improve building standards and codes.

    Host: Jennifer Goupil, P.E., F.SEI, M.ASCE, Senior Manager Codes & Standards, SEI

    With nearly three decades of experience in the structural engineering industry, Jennifer understands both the micro and macro issues faced by structural engineers. In addition to her passion for creating safe and reliable standards, advancing performance-based and sustainable design, she really enjoys developing future leaders within structural engineering.
