SEAOC Professional Practice Committee Update
Monday, January 15, 2018
By Mark Gilligan, S.E., Committee Chair
SEAOC has reconstituted the SEAOC Professional Practice Committee. The Professional Practice committee’s purpose is to advocate for our members on professional practice issues and to provide a forum to address professional practice issues related to the practice of structural engineering.
The Professional Practice Committee is updating the SEAOC “Recommended Guidelines for the Practice of Structural Engineering in California”. Some of the changes will include addressing scope of services on sustainability and BIM. The committee is also developing recommendations regarding to the use of electronic stamps and signatures on documents.
The Committee will be providing a professional practice perspective with respect to legislation.
In addition when the issues arise the Committee will be advocating with respect to licensure and professional licensure members. Let us know how you have been affected by the actions of BPELSG.
