President's Report

Dear ISEA Members:

As this newsletter hits your inbox, we have several things occurring. 

Member dues are set to expire at the end of the month.  Please renew your dues by January 31, 2020.  See the Membership section below for additional information.

Registration is live for the 2020 Spring Conference.  Date of the conference is March 5th, 2020 and will be held at the Primo Banquet & Conference Center in Indianapolis.  See the Upcoming Events section for more information.

This year ISEA will award up to three $2,500 scholarships to deserving students who are pursuing a degree in Structural Engineering.  Do you know someone who qualifies for this scholarship? Please let them know about this opportunity. Applications must be submitted by January 31st.

Thanks to all who helped organize and attended our fall events. The Fall Meeting at Sun King Spirts, The Bowen Laboratory Tour at Purdue University, and the Lunch and Learn at the Hilti Store were excellent opportunities to network, learn more about the organization, and earn some CEU's.  If you were not able to attend, we hope to see you at future events.  Also, if you have any ideas for upcoming events, please share them with a board member.

Finally, thanks to all past and current board members for their time and efforts in running this organization.  Your current board members are:

President: Craig M. Scherschel
President-Elect: Thomas P. Leahy
Secretary: Dan Schenkel
Treasurer: Paul Brumleve
Director: Lucas Nisley
Director: Kate Oliver
Past-President: Tim Dickson
