SteelDay to Deliver Multitude of Free In-Person and Online Events September 25
August 19, 2015
(Chicago, IL) - The structural steel industry’s largest networking and educational function returns for a seventh successive year on Friday, September 25, and offers new ways to get involved. SteelDay, a national day of outreach and celebration hosted by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and its members and partners, provides free opportunities to learn about the fascinating work and accomplishments of the U.S. structural steel industry. In addition to steel facility and job site tours where you can see various facets of the industry and its innovative projects first-hand, this year’s SteelDay features exciting online activities created specially for designers.
“This year it is easier than ever before to get involved in SteelDay,” said Ross Allbritton, AISC industry mobilization manager. “So easy, that a major part of it is being delivered to you – right in your own office. Join the thousands of design professionals who learn, interact and build as a result of participating in annual SteelDay events.”
Journey through recent advancements in steel design and construction by signing up for AISC’s free Lunch & Learn webinar, “Steel and the Phantasmagoria,” which will be shown at noon on SteelDay in each of the contiguous U.S. time zones. Charlie Carter, Ph.D., P.E., S.E., AISC’s vice president and chief structural engineer, will take you on a virtual voyage through ingenious solutions that have resulted in great buildings, and you’ll gain an insight into the wealth of information available to help you tame the phantasmagoria. In addition, AISC will deliver free Domino’s pizza on SteelDay to the first 1,000 structural engineering offices to register for the webinar! (Note that pizza orders are only valid in the 48 contiguous states.) To register for the webinar, please visit www.steelday.org/webinar.
SteelDay will also mark the premiere of AISC’s new video “Architecturally Exposed,” a captivating documentary on the art and science of architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS), featuring Terri Meyer Boake, B.E.S., B.Arch., M.Arch., LEED AP, professor of architecture at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. The documentary will be available for free online streaming and downloading beginning on SteelDay.
