AISC Members Can Now Access 10,000 Pages of Technical Data
Professional Membership Dues Revised to Make Membership More Affordable
October 01, 2003 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.
More than 10,000 pages of technical steel design information is now available for download under a new program introduced by the American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc. (AISC). The new program, dubbed "ePubs", allows members and subscribers to download Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files of:
- All 17 AISC Design Guides
- Every article in every issue of Engineering Journal
- Nearly 200 papers from past Steel Conferences
In addition, members and subscribers now have free access to the AISC Shapes Database. AISC's website also allows visitors to download copies of all AISC specifications (including the Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for Structural Steel Buildings) and codes (including the Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges).
Design professionals can most easily access ePubs by joining AISC. To make
membership even more attractive, AISC has modified its dues structure—if six
people from one company join together, they pay the equivalent of $26.67 each;
if 50 people from one company join, they pay the equivalent of just $6 each.
AISC Professional Membership Fees:
1 member = $135.00
2-6 Members = $160.00
7-19 Members = $200.00
20-99 Members = $300.00
100-499 Members = $500.00
500-1000 Members = $1000.00
In addition, to access to ePubs, AISC members enjoy substantial discounts on printed publications and seminar and conference registrations. (The discounts can easily pay for membership: members receive a $125 discount on their Steel Conference registration and $50 on the purchase of a Steel Manual, for example.)
Professional membership in AISC is limited to engineers and architects. Those
not eligible for membership can access ePubs through a $300
