Orange County Branch Newsletter

July 2015


Join the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) at their upcoming events!

By Chad Harden, PE SE

Do you want to get more involved with your local Orange County SEI Committee? Come join us for our next (First!) Committee Meeting, all are welcome and dinner is provided to all attendees. We also have a Whiskey Tasting Social Event happening in September.  We'd love for you to join us for these events!

The Orange County ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) was created in 2014 to provide a resource and social environment for civil/structural engineers in Orange County of all disciplines (bridges, buildings and other civil structures).

What do civil/structural engineers in Orange County want to accomplish as a team with SEI? What benefits do we want to realize for ourselves and our society? Let’s figure this out together, decide on a course of action, and act on our plan! With this major goal in mind, the focus this year is to (1) build a cabinet of officers and get in contact with other interested members, and (2) plan a social event! Interested in SEI? Please contact me with your ideas for the group and also stay tuned for more information at:

Our meetings are open to all members and non-members. The meetings are used to plan activities and events for members. Feel free to join us and get acquainted with our Committee Members, find out about upcoming events and learn how you can be a part of this committee.
