Nominations Now Being Accepted for the 2007 AISC Steel “Sabbatical”
February 23, 2007 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.
Do you know someone who can explain—in clear and concise terms—why it’s called lateral-torsional buckling? When burrs need (and don’t need) to be removed in bolted connections? And what constitutes a lateral brace for a beam? Or are you the person other engineers go to for explanations and advice?
If you enjoy sharing your expertise and experience—or know someone who does—now is the time to be nominated for the 2007 AISC Steel Sabbatical.
In addition to sharing knowledge and expertise in daily exchanges with engineers, fabricators, and others involved in the design and construction of steel buildings, the selected candidate will also: help AISC develop the next AISC Specification and Steel Construction Manual; meet hundreds of engineers and construction specialists involved with AISC’s committees; and build knowledge—all while contributing to the profession.
This paid-position will be structured to suit the specific situation of the selected candidate.
If this opportunity sounds exciting, please call Charlie Carter, AISC’s Chief Structural Engineer, at 312.670.5414 or email him at [email protected].
