A Letter from Our President

Roger E. Ferch

Dear Visitor,

I’m pleased to announce that our own Charles (Charlie) J. Carter, SE, PE, PhD, has been named the new president of AISC, effective in December. For the past eight years he’s served as Vice President and Chief Structural Engineer for AISC and has worked for the Institute for more than 25 years. I’m delighted to pass the torch to Charlie when I retire in December.

While at AISC, Charlie has spearheaded a number of important initiatives, including the revitalization of the AISC Code of Standard Practice, the development of a unified Steel Manual combining both ASD and LRFD, the development of AISC’s first Seismic Design Manual, and the expansion of AISC continuing education programs into the online realm. He’s also a well-known speaker and the author of numerous papers as well as AISC Design Guides on Torsional Analysis of Structural Steel Members and on Wide-Flange Column Stiffening at Moment Connections.

To learn more, see AISC’s official announcement.

Please join me in congratulating Charlie on his new role as incoming President of AISC.
