>Bills comments like those of others (including Dennis McCroskeys concern for advertising in the Structural Section of the phone book) are, I would hope, not intended to restrain the practices of Civil engineers that are protected by the law to practice all area's of structural engineering except for essential facilities and structures above 5 stories. I would also hope that these posts serve the purpose to suggest a way to determine the specialty of the engineer who advertises. Our phone book reads Engineers-Structural, which to me indicates those listed in it are structural engineers. I do get irked when I see civil engineers listed in this catagory, (there are at least 2 in our book). I have no problem with a civil engineer listed under Engineers-Civil who indicates they do structural engineering, I used to do it myself. I get even more irked when a potential client wants to know why I charge more than these alleged structural engineers. The general public doesn't know the difference and assums they are all the same. Other than that, when I was doing structural engineering as a consultant, the work I would get from the phone book was not the kind of work I wanted anyway. I would rather do the schools and hospitals with fees of 10's of thousand dollars instead of Joe Blow's garage addition for a couple of hundred. dennismc > > > > > dennismc --- Internet Message Header Follows --- Received: from server1.seaoc.org (bqe.com [184.108.40.206]) by host1.texramp.net (8.8.5/8.8.5) with SMTP id UAA10076 for <rlewis(--nospam--at)techteam.org>; Tue, 8 Apr 1997 20:09:24 -0500 (CDT) Received: from mail.mcn.org by server1.seaoc.org (NTList 3.02.10) id za016977; Tue, 8 Apr 1997 16:59:18 -0700 Received: from Duke (pm25-1-men-a01.mcn.org [220.127.116.11]) by dns1.mcn.org (8.8.5/8.7.3) with SMTP id QAA14283 for <seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org>; Tue, 8 Apr 1997 16:56:32 -0700 (PDT) Message-Id: <199704082356.QAA14283(--nospam--at)dns1.mcn.org> X-Sender: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Mailer: Windows Eudora Pro Version 2.1.2 Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" Date: Tue, 08 Apr 1997 16:56:32 -0500 To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org From: dennismc(--nospam--at)dennismc.com Subject: Re: FW: Civil Engineering News Editorial (April, 1997 issue) Reply-To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Error-To: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Loop: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Info: [SEAOC] Owner: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-POP3-Rcpt: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Precedence: list X-ListMember: rlewis(--nospam--at)techteam.org [seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org] __________________________________________________ Richard Lewis, P.E.
