    Senator Pittman is not giving up on this SB363 bill. Just a friendly reminder we need you to ACT.

    He is still pushing SB363 regarding using your design over and over, not compensating you and NOT taking into consideration the health safety and welfare of the public. Bill is one page, please read. SB363.pdfgovownership.pdf

    Please email and call everyone on the committee and senators and OPPOSE SB363. IF you called and emailed yesterday, please do so again today. Emails count as one and phone calls count too. Do both!  We are working hard to STOP this bill.

    Contact members of the Senate Fiscal Responsibility Committee and urge them to oppose SB363.  Contact as many Senators as you can and ask them to do the same thing to oppose any anti-architect/engineer amendments.  You can call them in Montgomery today at 334.242.7800.

    Engineers Week 2013

    SEAoAL would like to encourage you to celebrate and help us promote the positive contributions engineers make to society every day by participating in Engineers Week. On the week of February 17-23, engineers will be presenting to students all over the country regarding how engineers make dreams a reality.  NCSEA has developed a power point presentation that can be given at schools.  The PowerPoint file can be used as a template that can be customized to an appropriate age group.  The presentation is designed to promote Structural Engineering to students and help expand knowledge of our profession. For more information about Engineers Week, visit the National Engineers Week Foundation website at www.eweek.org .  To obtain a copy of this free PowerPoint presentation template so you can promote engineering at a school near you, please contact the Executive Director of SEAoAL, Rhea Williams, at rhea@karmamanagmentinc.com.
