The Council of American Structural Engineers (CASE) is part of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) and represents the business and risk management interests of structural engineering firms. The Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) seeks to advance, serve, and promote the worldwide structural engineering profession and related industry. The efforts of CASE and SEI complement all of the great work being done by SEAOC and our member organizations.
Because a close and cooperative working relationship between SEI, CASE, and the NCSEA / SEAOC member organizations is essential for the betterment of the structural engineering profession and its service to the public, a memorandum of understanding between these organizations was signed at the national level in the end of 2017. This memorandum provides framework for how we can all work together to achieve these shared aspirations. In this spirit, SEAOC is proud to be able to offer the CASE member rate to any person or firm interested in attending the June 7th and 8th Business of Structural Engineering Seminar being held in Anaheim, California.
