The NCSEA Advocacy Committee operates as 5 separate but overlapping subcommittees that work together towards a well-defined goal: To improve and enhance the image of structural engineers and of the profession itself to a broad audience consisting of students, the general public, prospective clients, and other engineers.
- Clients & Prospects
- General Public & Media
- Code Officials and Government Agencies
- Students & Educators
- Ad Hoc Website Development
The Basic Education Committee seeks to determine and promote the core curriculum that should be offered to, and required of, structural engineering students. Integral parts of this mission include working with the Structural Engineering Certification Board to achieve a common objective, working with educational institutions for curriculum content, and working with practitioner employers to ease students from the academic environment into the workplace.
The Code Advisory Committees operate as five separate subcommittees, structured to work with Model Code and Standards issues and activities, such as generating and responding to code changes, preparation and codification of resource documents, trial design studies, and practical application guidelines.
The Continuing Education Committee develops and presents continuing education programs for structural engineers, including the Winter Institute, and administers the Diamond Review Program.
The Licensing Committee works with the Member Organizations to influence states to adopt consistent licensing laws and rules in the interest of public safety, especially relating to separate licensure of structural engineers.
The Member Organization Development Committee works with interested structural engineers to help organize state associations where they do not currently exist.
The Publications Committee coordinates and manages publications produced by NCSEA (Such as STRUCTURE magazine)
After the terrorist events of September 11th 2001, it became obvious that a disaster of previously unthinkable magnitudes was possible. The unprecedented need for structural engineering technical assistance in these situations mandates a level of preparedness to ensure the most immediate, efficient, and effective response in possible future disasters. For this reason, in November of 2001, NCSEA formed an Ad Hoc committee named the "Structural Engineering Emergency Response Committee (SEER Committee)" to investigate opportunities and establish a framework for structural engineers to become more widely trained and nationally organized to assist local jurisdictions with post disaster assessment and recovery.
